Elkin High is a great small town school where you have many one on one experiences with teachers. The education and class choice is great. Elkin Offers many oppertunities with the local community college to get ahead on college credits. One place Elkin could improve would ne in its athletic facilities. Elkins gym needs many updates as well as handicap excessible bathrooms on the gym level. The athletic fields are in great condition, but they do sit in a flood plain and the facilities do flood often making games very messy and muddy.

Elkin High School is a very small close-knit high school. EHS places a very high emphasis on academics and college readiness. You attend school with the same classmates all 12 years of your elementary, middle and high school years. You know everyone in your class and the classes tend to be very close and supportive of one another. I am interested in becoming a music major in college. EHS is blessed with the very BEST teachers in our music and art departments!!
Living in a small town has its perks. In Elkin High School, the help of any teacher is right at your fingertips-- guinune, caring teachers who go to great lengths to lend a hand. With a small commuity, one would expect only a small number of students to participate in activities. This is not the case! A high percentage of students participate in multiple activities that Elkin High offers-- and are successful in the area, too. We take pride in the success of our past and have faith in the future to come!
