Estherville Lincoln central education is very good and most of teachers really care about teaching you. There's some teachers that are just not so good at it if I'm completely honest so it's up to you to push yourself. I love the many opportunities the school provides such as dual classes. They also provide for you to take face to face or online college classes as a high school student. It has helped me a lot because now I already have college credits before enrolling completely in ILCC.

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.
