We have been an Emmaus family for several years now, and we continue to be impressed. The teachers are simply so caring and really take the time to understand and connect with each student. I can't tell you have many times my son's teacher has told me a funny story about him or given me her thoughtful
... Read more insight. The hardworking principal, Mrs. Hittinger, has an open door policy and leads with common sense. The academics are strong with a mix of good old-fashioned "book-learning" and fun educational activities. Already my son's class has gone on two educational field trips, and it is only the end of October. The school has also greatly improved their technology program with a mobile computer lab and now, digital smartboards in every classroom! Even the kindergarteners are taught basic computer skills. We can't wait until the refurbished gym is re-opened, and look forward to a great year! Read less

I am glad I brought my child to this school. Pastor Chai helped my child in improving English and homework. Pastor Chai helped many new immigrant students to feel at home in the school and would go out of his way to help students and parents with their problems. I am sad that Pastor Chai is leaving.

Just read the last two posts and am shocked. My child just graduated from Emmaus and I am extremely grateful to this school for all of the many things it did for my child. There is a music and arts program, the curricul is very strong, especially in the upper grades, as my child is moving on into advanced
... Read more classes for high school. The teachers are very interested in helping children, and do take the time to work with individual students. I don't know about how they are paid--it seems to me that the longevity of the teaching staff reflects something good about what the teachers make, or at least a real commitment to the school. There is a technology program that is strong, and teachers do have teaching resources, at least from what I have seen. The principal listens to parents, and may not always say yes to everyone's requests, does treat people fairly ad kindly. The difference between this school and others that I have had experience with is that this school has a very comfortable ad welcoming feel to it. Once you are here, you don't want to leave it. I am going to miss my Emmaus family, but I know I am always welcome back. Read less

Emmaus is a loving school. The teachers are great but extremely UNDER paid. The academics are lacking. The teachers have NO resources. They use outdated curriculum, have no manipulatives and no science program at all. There are no arts or music programs which should be standard at a private school. There

We loved Emmaus Lutheran! My daughter, now a college freshman, attended Emmaus from 5th - 8th grade. The academic program is impressive and transitions from one grade to the next are smooth. The staff and administration provide a program that is seemless and focused. Learning is taught in an environment
... Read more that promotes critical thinking across the educational spectrum. The children are taught Christian character values, self reliance, accountability, time management skills, research skills, in addition to the academic program. Extracurricular programs enrich the academic environment and promote a Christian community spirit. The skills my daughter learned at Emmaus were recognized immediately by her high school teachers and are in force today at Arizona State University. Not only did my daughter form a solid and diverse knowledge base, she made life long friends. Friendships that are based on respect and moral development. From her first day at Emmaus, a new 5th grader, she was enveloped by a group of children and made part of the Emmaus family from the first day. The support & Christian example given by the teachers and the Principal are what make Emmaus the most special. Read less
