Elma High School has been a great learning environment for me all 4 years I have attended. The teachers are great people, always wanting what is best for the students. I am very proud to attend a school with such a good community supporting us. I feel that I am ready after attending this great school district.

I like elma school district alot of my friends and family have gone to this school district. However I do not like how the staff is unprofessional and unwilling to help kids out when they need help/ (teachers and counselors). Sports/cheer. The cheer coach is very unprofessional. She never showed up on time and didnt have practice at the scheduled time. Be aware if you join Cheerleading or drill team they are very expensive. Alot of hard work and long late nights spent practicing. This is one reason why I didnt do them throughout my high school years. Only my senior year. I used to think that Sports were for the rich and popular kids. I was right because you need to pay around $900 for your uniform and 3 camps. If you don't pay it off by graduation you do not get to graduate. They need to do more fundraising so kids like me can afford to join these kind of things.
Elma is an average public school with a few great areas and some lacking areas. The agriculture, multimedia, and engineering programs are well-funded, but the arts are quite underfunded.
