This school is awful the students are so mean and the teachers only takecare of a few of them. I want to move away but my parents won't because of the testing scores the only reason they are so high is because of the Academy and the other smart people. Please if you looking to go to this school don't.

I've been a student at Elkins High School for two years, and I can't tell you a time I've been successfully helped by a staff member. Most are rude, lazy, and/or do not understand their job requirements. The only way you can recieve help is by threatening to contact the school board. The only reason ...  Read more

Elkins is in my opinion the best high school in the district. Elkins students are all very accepting of new students, like my daughter. Clements on the other hand, has many students who are bullied daily. And chose to make fun of the students at Elkins as well calling them 'Ghetto'.

I went to Elkins when I was a freshman and sophomore, and it was a totally better school than the one I'm attending currently. The administrators are nice most of the time, I had more friends there, and the academic quality was above average.

I had a daughter in this school for one year, and I agree with all the criticisms of the school administration. They do a terrible job. We moved to Clements & it was like night and day.

I am a senior at Elkins, and I have had a great time over the past four years at the school. Although the rezoning after my freshman year may have hurt the school academically, the teachers are still top-notch, and the AP program is amazing. The facilities to succeed in various areas are thankfully still ...  Read more

This was once a great school, both my sisters went here, and I was very excited to go as well after all the praise I heard about it. However, the atmosphere of the school has changed. What was once a fine learning institution is more rapidly becoming a prison more than anything else. This coming from ...  Read more
