HIGH SCHOOL PRINCIPAL'S PAGE
Elmwood High School strives to provide students with a high-quality education that allows them to meet the challenges of today's ever-changing world. With approximately 100 students enrolled, and over 15 dedicated staff members, Elmwood High School offers academic and extra-curricular opportunities that enrich the high school experience. Due to the size of Elmwood, students have the unique advantage of very small class sizes and small group instruction that meets the needs of a variety of learners. Educators at Elmwood are devoted to embracing this culture to create a safe and caring environment focused on respect, responsibility, and community. If you would like to see our facilities or learn more about the district, we encourage you to come to Elmwood where I will personally meet with you for a tour and discuss the offerings at Elmwood.

Elmwood MS/HS offers research based math courses that meet the needs and abilities of all students. Starting in the 2020-21 school year, Elmwood phased in CPM Math, which is the highest rated curriculum on the market. We phased this curriculum in with our 6th grade students in Core Connections I, and with our 8th grade and 9th grade students in Integrated Math I, formerly Algebra I.
In the 2021-22 school year, we will continue to phase in CPM with Core Connections II, and Integrated Math II, formerly Geometry. We are also starting a Math Reasoning course through CVTC, where students can gain additional transcripted credit. We will finish the final phase of CPM Math in the 2022-23 school year with Core Connections III and Integrated Math III, formerly Algebra II.
Students will have an opportunity at Elmwood High School to take course work that will enrich their lives. Whether it is art, music, physical education or web page design, students have almost all elective choices that will pique their interest.
