    Is it correct to say, "I have an elementary school daughter." ?

    Thank you very much.

    Only if the daugher is defined by the phrase "elementary school", which I doubt she is.

    She is a daugher in elementary school.

    She may be an unruly daughter, a pretty daughter, an under-aged daugher, or a school-aged daughter, or even an elementary-schooled daughter, but she is not an elementary school daugther.

    Oh, that's it! An elementary-schooled daughter.

    Thanks Jlinger!
