Parent's Review of Elan International School in
What is the name of your child's school? (Please report on one school per survey.)
Elan International School
In what town or city is this school located?
How would you describe this school? (i.e. American, British, International, Local, etc.)
What grade levels are represented at this school?
Pre-K - 6th
How do most children get to school everyday? (bus, train, walk, etc.)
Their parents drive them to school.
How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?
The facilities are not the best, but the program offered by the school makes up for any lacking glamour in the facilities. There are plenty of after school enrichment classes for pre-k through 6th grade.
How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?
There are numerous activities that the parents can take part in. Elan has a yearly Halloween Fest, WinterFest and International Festival which the whole family can enjoy! There is a very active PTO.
What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?
Do it! Elan is the only school of its kind (offering Spanish or French immersion) in the San Fernando Valley. The classes are small, the teachers are energetic and the school is growing. I've read the other negative post on this site regarding Elan and I have to say that everyone is different and everyone has different experiences. You have to go see for yourself. My experience with Elan has been great and I'm happy that my child experienced an Elan education.
