I really felt that my time at Elk River High School prepared me for college. There were a variety of college level AP courses offered, which gave me experience in the rigor of college coursework. My chosen major is music, and the music program at Elk River helped me continue my love for playing and showed me the different pathways a career in music could take me. I had many opportunities outside of school offered to me, both within music and academics. Elk River High School also provided a lot of resources for scholarships and preparing to finance a secondary education.
Review Elk River Senior High School
I struggle with social anxiety and struggle somewhat to make friends. I have a few people very close to me but being at school sends my anxiety sky high. The teachers are fairly good and as questionable as our public education system is, Elk River does a fairly good job. The facility itself is decent, though some areas need improvement. The school lunch is unbearable and we have major problems with our heat regulation so some areas are freezing while others are a sauna. I guess overall the school is okay, it is more personal issues that deteriorate my experience.
The teachers don't teach must like they pretty much leave it all to the students to figure out and just don't really teach from my experience. Also the students aren't very good like the atmosphere isn't because most people participate in illegal things and people that don't are considered weird and no one has any school spirit, for example we made it to state in football and still had a super lame student section.
