DANGER!! Cell tower right next to school. The teachers are caring and great! But I am not going to expose my daughter to radiation 6 hours a day, 170 days each school year!

Our daughter has been at Elk Meadow for 4 years now. At one point we moved and had to change schools, the differences between the 2 schools was night and day! Elk Meadow has a fabulous group of teachers, or daughter has thrived being here!

Our son is in his second year at Elk Meadow. We moved from another state and it's been a great experience! The teachers he has had have been wonderful and caring. He has made friends and is excelling academically. We feel a part of the Elk Meadow Community. The one fundraiser they do is the Great Pumpkin Race so our kids don't have to go door to door selling things. I recommend this school!

All I can say is that we spent 3 1/2 years here, dealing with bullying, an incident with a teacher who should not be teaching elementary school, complete apathy from the staff, not including Sue in the front office who is great, and just a general feeling of being unwelcome. We were constantly being called at home regarding our child's "behavior" and response to difficult situations, and never ever felt validated, or heard. Our child fell behind in critical academic subjects. School was a daily stress and we thought our child had serious problems and wondered if he/she would make it in society. After moving our child to a different school, we cannot believe the difference!! We are completely baffled at the changes we see for the positive! Our child has many friends, a school full of loving staff who have made the most amazing differences in our child!! Our child is excited for school every day!!! This is something that never happened! Our child never felt safe at Elk Meadow. That's what apathy will do to a building. I am grateful everyday that we made this move for our child. The future is bright for the first time since pre-K.

I would like to bring up a safety issue regarding the 'commute options' program going on at Elk Meadow Elementary. I am a resident of river rim, which I enter and exit River Rim drive and Brookswood daily. Last week, during a very busy traffic day (before Memorial Day Weekend) I was attempting to exit River Rim onto Brookswood Blvd. There were children all over the place (dozens, maybe 40-50) on bicycles with orange pinnies. Some had crossed the road and were back on school property, some crossing the road (in the road), some where lingering far behind on River Rim drive. I bring this up as a concerned parent. I've witnessed some speeding drivers fly up and down Brookswood at dangerous speeds. I've found myself having to run across the street with my dog to feel safe as speeding cars approach. I only could pinpoint one adult supervising all these children, with children in front and behind her. These kids have NO busines being on busy streets while in school. If you're a parent of a child at Elk Meadow, give this a second thought. I would never want my child to be off school property learning how to commute via bicycle. Too dangerous!
