The Elmwood-Murdock schools offer a great sports program which routinely sends teams to the State competitions and recently won the State championship in boys basketball. Sports are very important to the community and the pride in the teams is evident in the turn out at the games.
Elmwood consolidated with Murdock to form the Elmwood-Murdock school district. The two communities are only five miles apart and work together as if they were one. Both communities support the school and activities. The elementary school is located in Elmwood while the junior high/high school is located in Murdock. The elementary school was once voted in the top fifty schools in the nation by Redbook Magazine. And it has only gotten better. The recent passing of a bond issue by the communities demonstrates the commitment to the schools. The renovations at both the elementary and high schools will bring the facilities to the same level of excellence as the teaching staff and should be completed by the beginning of the school year in August of 2009. The graduation rate of Elmwood-Murdock students is 100%. For more information about the Elmwood-Murdock schools you can check out this link...
The Elmwood-Murdock schools offer a great sports program which routinely sends teams to the State competitions and recently won the State championship in boys basketball. Sports are very important to the community and the pride in the teams is evident in the turn out at the games. Although sports are important grades do take precidence over the games. The Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA ) chapter is a very active group that always comes home with state awards and places top in National competitions. The students also score very well in state tests and have impressive ACT scores which is a testiment to the education provided. The student-to-teacher ratios are very good with the class sizes ranging from 22 to 34. The teachers and staff all know not only your child's name but your name and any sibling's name. They will probably know your dog's name as well.
The Elmwood-Murdock Choir has been invited to perform at Carnegie Hall next year. It will take practice, practice, practice but the choir will make it! The band also has a strong program with the majority of students in each class participating.
