Open Quote horrible staff. disgusting lunches that are sometimes days old. many openly racist/sexist/homophobic teachers and staff. no one listens or cares about the students concerns until the media brings attention to it and they are forced to actually do something. teachers almost never submit grades on time or they just don't grade assignments at all. the amount of work that is thrown on to students all at once is unacceptable. this school needs to change not only for the students benefit but for the community too.

Open Quote Amazing to read a review from non-parenting folk who fail to teach their kids any kind of manners get on here and bash the teachers/admin who actually work to help their childs behavior and attitude. If your child come to school at Elko to learn, is respectful of adults, and can act appropriately - then they will have no issues! If you expect middle school to be like Day-Care where your child acts however disrespectful as they want and you expect nothing to happen - then they will have problems! Getting good teachers and a dedicated principal is not easy in this part of town - not when they could be in the west end of henrico for the same money! Respect the fact that they are there each and every day to work with your child! Teachers/admin pay taxes too - That means you dont have the "right" to abuse them any more than they can abuse you for being a crappy parent! So work WITH them - acknowledge that your child is not always perfect, deserves a consequence for their actions at times, and are not on the same respect level as the adults. Twice ive come up to the school to pick up my daughter only to hear the ghetto scream in the middle of the office from a parent - cussing and threats! - how do you expect your kid to act when you be setting that example?? Elko is an excellent school, we are lucky to have the dedicated principal and teachers - we chose it over the other two options in Henrico because my girls are safe there, and they are learning! Yes it is strict - but for good reason - support Elko! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
