Estherville Lincoln Central High School Reviews

Had I known then what I know now, my kids would not have graduated from ELC. Both of my kids went on to state colleges and were WAY UNDER prepared as far as classes go. One of my children consulted the TA of their calculus college class and she was astounded that what they were struggling with was NOT taught in the AP class at ELC. There is a very strong emphasis on sports activities. We can build a new weight lifting room, pour a new track and construct a new football field, but we have ONE SCHOOL NURSE for three buildings (and no, the buildings are not all on the same property). I have a child with a medical condition that requires an inhaler. This student was told that they could NOT keep their inhaler with them and would have to go to the office if they were having an asthma attack and the nurse would be called to retrieve it. Um, NO! My child DID carry the inhaler with them.

Everybody is very friendly and the learning environment is productive. The teachers really care about the students, and everybody looks out for one another.
I think that the school offers a generous amount of technology to the students. Quality of the building, there is no air conditioning in the High School so when temperatures get about 85 we are dismissed from school early. Our gym has wooden bleachers that are falling apart. Our little theatre doesn't even have curtains that close they all have wholes as well or chairs that are safe to sit in (wooden), the guidance counselors are fabulous and there is a little bit of parent involvement and some tutoring.
