Elkton Hills is one of the schools Holden Caulfield went to before attending Pencey Preparatory School

Background Edit

While trying to explaining the difficulties he had at his prior schools, Holden mentions that he didn't flunk out of Elkton but rather sort of "quit". Holden says that one of the biggest reasons he left Elkton Hills was because he was "surrounded by phonies", especially the headmaster Mr. Haas, whom he describes is "ten times worse than old Thurmer".
