I just have to say after moving from downstate to the area 5 years ago, I can not believe the education my children receive at the elementary level and high school level. I researched area schools before moving and visited Elk Rapids and immediately felt a warm welcome. They offer so much for a smaller school and the teachers at all levels along with the Principals are the best I have ever encountered. I am very happy we moved to the area.
