I absolutely loved Elder! In my first year i was scared about making new friends! I tried to make friends and succeeded because here, there are no cliques or groups. I shadowed other local high schools along with Elder and I am beyond happy I chose this place because i believe its a paradise on Earth! Come look at the school of the Panthers, join the brotherhood that lasts for eternity!

Elder High School has been the best choice I have ever made. The teacher's are invested in each student. They interact with each student whether it is on an academic level, as an advisor or extra-curricular mentor. Elder High School for me is tradition. My family has been involved since the beginning. Rev. Schoenhoft, who started the 9th grade at St Lawrence that later became Elder is my grandmother's uncle. Tradition is part of what keeps Elder so great. The other part is our Alumni. They support us in everything we do. I have learned more than just academics. I have learned leadership, acceptance and brotherhood.
My experience at Elder has been one to remember! My critique will be one of athletics in nature, because I have learned a lot about myself during my involvement in athletics at Elder High School. I have played football, wrestling, swimming, and volleyball. All offered unique opportunities, from playing in a nationally recognized football stadium to winning the state volleyball championship this past year. Being a part of a team has made me respect those players on and off the court and being a team that comes together to overcome obstacles is a truly rewarding experience.
