Eastern Lebanon County Senior High School Reviews

118 reviews

In 2009, the district superintendent at the time, let it slip that the ELCO SD was operating without a standard, aligned district wide written curriculum. The last known copy of anything resembling organized, properly, maintained curriculum “may exist on a floppy disk”. Over the years, the administration and the school board told parents curriculum issues would be addressed and a district wide curriculum was in place. Only to find out this past fall, under new administration, ELCO SD was still operating without a properly maintained, standard aligned written curriculum.
Most parents and graduates don’t care to talk about this but, over the last 5-10 years, more ELCO seniors are not prepared for college level work and find themselves spending their summers in Summer College or spending semester 1 of their freshman year in one or more remediation classes because they do poorly on class placement exams. This needs to be addressed.

A very close knit community, that holds good small community values but lacks diversity overall. The academics are good and the High School offers a variety of AP and College level courses to take; students have the option of dual enrollment to further their education as they see fit. The teachers a committed to their job and making connection with their students, to ensure the student's success. Many of the teachers are good mentors and role models for students. Administration is friendly and helpful to students, supporting their ideas and ambitions. The community surrounding the High School is one that really wants their students to be successful and thrive.
You will find a handful of educators who are genuine and professional educators. Unfortunately, the district’s staff roster is made up mostly of alumni and family of those who work/worked in the district or were approved by board members who are or were family members.
Bullying is a problem in this district. Teachers, Administrators and certain members of the board bully the parents as well as the students. No pride in the district. Too many ELCO grads and family members employed in th district.
