Emerson Middle School - It is disappointing the Bakersfield City School District approved to have "Provisional Internship Permit Holders" teach our children. The students deserve to be given the best opportunity for success in a learning environment taught by a fully credentialed teacher. The classroom is not the appropriate place for the teacher to pratice his/her teaching ability.
I am currently not liking this school at all. Most kids that go there are rude to one another. The campus is disgusting. Oh yeah and one kid stole my wallet wile I was lined up to go to lunch. Enough said. PS. There's fights everyday. I would suggest for your child attend a school other than this one.
My child was beaten up on a regular basis. I even got the police involved since it would happen on the school bus also. The principle at that time offered to put my child in special education classes since they were smaller and it would be easier to protect her. I ended up complaining enough to the board of education to get her moved to another school but the teachers and principle of this school at the time did little or nothing to help.
Worst school ever.... many kids cry not to go back in there.. who knows what goes on... but my son was afraid to go back to this school. To much bullying and lets not talk about the staff.... Because its a clean site :)
I am a former student of this school and I just have to say that Emerson has some really talented and gifted kids, and teachers do all they cane to bring that out and encourage good behavior. They also have some not very good kids( which is probably were all of Emerson's bad rep comes from) but the staff is great and I hope they never give up on these kids.
