    "While no school is perfect, Elkhorn Middle School strives to be the best it can be. Opportunities abound for students at EMS. Many of the reviews here are several years old. I believe that if the same people were to come back and see the school now, the would review it differently. The teachers at EMS are always working to try new things to reach each and every student."

    "My school is working toward a positive learning environment. I educate there and others I work with are interested in the best possible outcome for our students. Teachers know and respect the fact that we can always get better and better. We feel the same about our students. Students need accountability and they too, can get better and better. Most educators are intrinsically motivated. so when our students achieve, we are truly happy and will work harder for more gains. Two things come to mind for improvement. EMS communication to the community and the community assisting more with the achievement of our children. It will take us all working together- Partners for our future. Thanks to each and every parent/family member/guardian who assists at this time."

    "I am a student at this school, and I am overall okay with it. My only problem is that sports are emphasized as more important than academics or other extracurricular activities. I made it to State in Academic team and I got a poster. ONE POSTER. The girls basketball team, even though I know they deserved it (They're GREAT), got so many pep rallies. I got a lead role in the High School's musical and I got no recognition. I just want it to be fair for everyone. But over all, it;s very good."

    "I am so disheartened with this school that I am having trouble putting it into words. I am a big supporter of the public school system, which is one of the reasons I find it difficult to write this negative review. In her two years there, my daughter has watched cartoons in her classes instead of working on content, been intimindated by a band teacher, had to work around unrealistic rules that discourages children from using the school library, and most notably, dealt with a very unreasonable teacher. She lost 20% of her math grade because she did not write her name on the paper. That is a behaviorial issue, and is not supposed to count as a grade. She lost 10 points off another assignment because she did not write her last name on her paper. This same teacher lost one of her assignements. Although the Superintendent agrees with me, the principal stands ups for the teachers on every issue without fail. I cannot in good conscious rate this school higher than 1-star. This is, by far, the worst school my daughter has ever attended. My wife and I had been told this was a "bad school" beforehand. It was our fault for not heeding the warnings."
