This school is located in the best area of Buena Park. Parents are heavily involved in the PTA, and students are academically thriving. I gues they didn't win the blue ribbon award for nothing!.

We first came to Emery 4 years ago. My children are happy there. The teachers are nice and work very hard.

Emery is a great school run by a very active and strong principle and staff, sincerely caring teachers and parent volunteers. My son is graduating this week and having attended this school for the last six years, even he agrees that all of his teachers were excellent and fun, some more serious, but overall, he says he learned so much from the hard Gates populated classes and most importantly, he had fun learning.

The school is run by several parents who dominate the PTA and the principal is not aware of this.

Excellent school, my daughter has been there since kindergarten, she's in 6th grade now. Every single teacher she's had was an outstanding professional, extremely dedicated and caring, and making learning fun! There is also a very active parent group (PTA). My son will be entering kindergarten there in the fall. I love Emery Elementary and I highly recommend it!

Emery Elementary is a well managed and competently run School. Teachers are qualified and are sincere in their desire to educate my children. I specifically moved to Los Coyotes so that my kids could study there.
