My experience here at Elkhart Memorial has not been anything to brag about as Elkhart continues to display how much they truly do not care for those programs outside of sports. For instance, our theater program consistently does excellent performances and yet the school administration will not fund a more grand scale operation for the theater scene. Even, our band program is lacking funds as we constantly have to use beaten up instruments and if you have a new instrument consider it a god send because it doesn't happen often here. Even the bathroom lack the proper funding as they are constantly leaking or out of order. honestly, I just feel bad for the janitorial staff as i bet they constantly have their hands full. However, the teachers i have met here have been some of the most wonderful and knowledgeable people i have ever met. It's safe to say i'll miss the teachers here, not the school.

It’s hard to figure out where to go and makes friends because there is many students. I feel like they really prepared me for college because of all the help, the counselors are amazing and assist you in the right direction!
I had a very good experience, teachers were mostly caring and helpful. Loved being in Marching Band and playing on the Soccer team!
