I love Emerson elementary my whole family had the pleasure of going to that school from my 75 yr old aunt to my 5 year old daughter. When I go there to pick up my daughter from school her teacher knows my name because in a way she has become part of my family. I can email her with question and I do get a response which is what I care about. Now as a single mother I need that little but of relief knowing that my kid isn't lost in her class which I do feel tends to happen to some kids. And I do enjoy seeing Mr. Norris acting as the crossing guard or making appearances in the class rooms. So why this site has given an amazing FAMILY ORIENTED school a 4 is beyond me. If it comes down to it I'll pay to have my daughter stay and attend EMERSON
Mr. Mark Norris is one of the BEST people that has happened to Emerson Elementary. http://www.mpsaz.org/emerson/staff/manorris/ He has been the Principle since 2008. He has worked very hard and diligently to get the school in a better place. I am greatly impressed how things have changed for the best. The administrative staff has done a lot to get things changed and organized. Teacher and parent volunteerism are GREATLY appreciated.. Although, the playground aids are somewhat to be desired.. I still admire this school for the work they do.
The teachers are interested in the students and care. They challenged the students while not making them feel overwhelmed.
I attended Emerson for grades 2 thru 6 - many, many moons ago. My son also attended Emerson from K thru 6. We Love Emerson!
I found the teachers interested in the students and caring. They challenged the students and gave just the right amount of leway so the student didn't feel overwhelmed. They are not prepared to teach the gifted child.
I have not been happy with Emerson Elementary. I believe the teachers do the best job they can, but the administration is not behind them. I think the ratio of students to teacher is too high.
