13 Parent Reviews for Elgin Middle School

I understand the concerns that are being stated in the review section for Elgin Middle School, BUT if the concerns are so highly disturbed, how come it's not being addressed to the proper qualified school officials, instead of behind a PC? However, I understand the concerns, and I took it upon myself ...  Read more

I enjoyed sending my son to Elgin Middle School. The teachers and administration are delightful. There were always enough books, computers and other supplies for the students. Parents need to GET INVOLVED! Most the parents do not get involved, maybe it's because in the part of town zoned for this school ...  Read more

I think Elgin Middle School is a great school. The problem is the parents in the area. They expect the school to raise their children. There is so little parent involvement that many of the children do not reach their potential. The teachers can only do so much. Once the child is home there is no ...  Read more

This school has many teachers and other staff who care and are doing their best. It is small enough to get to know students and families. It has some truly great teachers and has made some significant improvements in recent years. That said, it has all the problems associated with poverty, non-stable ...  Read more

Whoever said this school was a good school is in dreamland. Teachers do not control the kids, the content of the course work is so behind other schools, that its SCARY. My kid made all A's and B's while attending, but when I started looking at what he was studying, it seemed as if his eighth grade ...  Read more

I must admit that when I moved here I was very excited about the school. It seemed to be a wonderful small school. I was immediately disappointed. I feel that this school is far behind other schools and there seems to be no structure. Kids are running wild and basically doing as they please. My ...  Read more

I have thre children tow whom have passed through the middle school and one who will attend next year for her final year. When I came to Elgin in 93 it was because of their schools and the small hometown charm. I have seen teachers and administration frustrated at the deterioration of this school and ...  Read more

This school is far behind other middle schools in neighboring districts. My oldest child went to this school for three years. I moved this child and my middle child into another school district a few months back. At this point my children are playing catch up. I feel this school needs a great deal ...  Read more
