Emerson is the best! I love this school because no one is ever left out. My oldest daughter has been there since 1st grade andis going to the 6th grade in the fall, and I have never had any problems.

All three of my boys have attended Emerson School, preschool through 6th grade. I stay because of the teachers and the principal. They care about the kids and they bend over backwards to keep the kids focused on studies, but also the extra activities that this school brings to the kids...it just can't ...  Read more

Emerson Elementary is a wonderful school that is not to big and not to small. There is a feeling of family and history at this school. I am looking forward for my 4 year old to attend kindergarten next fall. The principal is stellar. My son cannot wait for school to start again.

My student is in kinder and I have been very pleased with his level of learning. The school offers many different programs in which both the parents and students can further involve themselves. I think this school is a diamond in the rough and with a little more work has great potential.

Although Emereson was rated underperforming it still has some very good qualities. Some of the teachers highly motivate and challenge their students academically, while others do not. In my opinion, there is way too much bullying of younger kids by older kids and the new principal should be stricter ...  Read more

My 3 kids transferred to Emerson this year ('03)and I can only say I wish I had found this school before. The teachers are very professional and genuinely concerned about their students, the principal is very 'hands on' and the staff are all there for one reason: the students. There is not much cultural ...  Read more
