Elmwood Park School District 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.

The school is very small so you will be able to feel more comfortable with the people. This school is very open to people not many people but good connections. You will see the same faces every other day which is very good for someone who is just moving into the town. Elmwood Park High school has many good teachers that will help you after and before school if you ask for the help that you need. The teachers will make sure your focused and at the end of the day they will help you for your future. Sports in this school is extremely fun the best way to connect with friends and have fun time while doing it. The school isn't all that diverse but it is open to all and friendly to all that plan on attending.
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.
