Message from the Principal: Mr. Joel Hoyle

I am honored for the opportunity to serve as Principal of Elkin High School.  Elkin is a wonderful place to live and raise a family, and our school has a long tradition of both academic and athletic excellence.  One of the strengths of Elkin High School is the small school atmosphere that allows close relationships to develop between students, teachers, parents, and the community.  Our students are very active in extracurricular activities including athletics, clubs, JROTC, and the arts.  Our community is very active and involved in our school and the support is outstanding.

We are very proud of the accomplishments of our students.  Some recent accomplishments include:

Graduation rate of over 95%

ACT and Workeys scores that rank near tops in the state

Individual state championships in Wrestling and Tennis

Named Silver Award Winner in US News and World Report

It is our desire for Elkin High School to continue providing an excellent educational experience with high expectations for all our students.  If you are interested in becoming a part of Elkin High School, I encourage you to look closer at our offerings and to make an appointment with one of our principals or counselors.

It’s a Great Day to Be a Buckin’ Elk
