When we moved here almost 3 years ago, the district sent us to Elmhurst due to our homeschool being full. I have a daughter with delays due to being on the autism spectrum and having a genetic disorder. The staff here has always worked well with her and given everything we need. She receives twice as much help here as her school in Texas. Although we have had issues with bullying, it has always been dealt with. I have a 1st and 3rd grader currently. Both girls are thriving and adore staff members.
