Elmwood Park Board of Education Reviews

I believe that Elmwood Park Board of Education has great potential. I love the atmosphere the faculty and staff give to all students. Every teacher in each department gives off a very warm atmosphere in which is very crucial, in my opinion, to connect with students and help give a better understanding of the information being taught. My experience with the Elmwood Park Board of Education left me very satisfied that I wouldn't change anything. However, I would like them to add more opportunities like clubs/sports for extracurricular activity for the students. Being a student there through elementary to highschool, I think they lack many clubs/opportunities for students. I think they should expand so that the students and future students have a variety of options to choose from.

I have attended Elmwood Park schools since kindergarten. I enjoyed my experience because my teachers were approachable. However, The school needs to upgrade their building because there is no AC in the old building. Also, there aren't enough extra curriculum activities that students can take advantage of. I feel that the administration is more concerned on discipline then motivation and creativity for their students. I'm not saying that discipline is not important, I believe that it is really important, but education and developing skills would be a priority on my list.
When I first entered the district, the first thing I noticed was the diversity. There is no racial territorialism within the district. Everyone is friends with everyone, but not only that, we all help each other succeed in school. School spirit is beyond expectations. much of the academics are great, but there is definitely room for improvement.
