Emerson academic rigor and individualized instruction is incredible. The students follow an enriched Montessori program, and the kids are able to drive their own learning. The best part is the staff has incredible Montessori experience and care deeply for the kids.

We love this school and our kids don't want to leave at the end of the day. The teachers are passionate, the class sizes are small and the teaching is of a high standard. The best part is my kids (8 and 6) are empowered to take responsibility for their learning, something very unique that will help them ...  Read more

The HeadsUp! Pre-K and K program is excellent for parents who want to expose their kids to Montessori principles and Mandarin. My kids have been going for almost 3 years, and they get Mandarin immersion in the morning, and after lunch, they have regular English. There is even a music school colocated ...  Read more

This is our first year at Emerson School, with kids in Upper & Lower Elementary. We could not be happier. Both teachers are so kind and loving - they tend to both academic and emotional needs. Communication between teachers and parents is amazing - proactive and always welcome. As for academics, the ...  Read more

My child has been attending Emerson for three years and absolutely loves school. The curriculum is challenging and offers numerous specialty classes that you will unlikely find in other schools. While other schools are cutting out Music, Art and even Physical Education you will receive all of those ...  Read more

I have 2 children at Emerson Elementary School. I love that the program is open all year & all day from 8-5:30 or 8:30-6pm which makes it very easy for working parents to not have to deal with the nightmare of arranging and paying for after school babysitters, nannies, daycare centers or a mish mosh ...  Read more
