    Overall Experience: I think what makes the school unique is how much most teachers and students care about learning and growing. There are some students how make the learning experience hard, which is why I don't think the school is perfect.

    • 4
    Teachers: Most of the teachers are very engaged, and truly do care about students and their learning. The thing I find teachers struggling the most with is controlling of students, which is not entirely their fault. This can, at times, lead to less than desirable learning environments.

    Extracurriculars: There are a lot of clubs and organizations at Elk River High School.
