I have been a parent at Emelita Elementary for over 3 years. It is a great local school. Over this last school year there has been great improvements in many areas such as leadership, parent involvement, and programs focused on keeping gifted students. The schools academic scores continue to grow and there is focus on improving the school both in the immediate future and long term. Emelita is a nice place to be and provides a good learning environment for the children. Parent involvement appears to be on the rise and that is making a huge differnce. The principal has also demonstrated her 'open door' policy and this has allowed to make parents feel to be a bigger part of the school. The key is that this continues and hopefully parent involvement continues to grow.
This school is very nice and the teachers and staff care about all the kids as individuals. The people in the PTA are nice. This school runs well. The only problem is they dont have an SAS program so all the gifted students transfer out to other schools. Great place; very underrated.
My two boys attended Emelita School this past year. As we are new commers from another country the children did not speak a word in english and needless to say were hesitant about what was their school year will look like. As I look back , now that the year is about to end, I see two smiling boys who love to go to school, who feel confident and who are managing their academics - in english... The staff including the principle are helpfull, supporting and professional. the school's environment is plesent and warm. The children in Emelita are accepting, polite , friendly and sweet- in my mind it is in great part a result of the commitment and respect that the adults teach and demonstrate to the children.
My son has attended Emelita since Kindergarten and is now in the 5th grade. We have enjoyed a close relationship with his teachers and school staff who are always available for questions or to help the student in any way needed.
The school has a nice neighborly feel, however I wish there was more parent involvement, both financially and physically -just being present to help volunteer or attend the PTA meetings. Communication could also be improved b/w the school and the parents re: upcoming projects or fundraisers. It seems we get notice of things not always in a prompt manner.
Nice school in nice surroundings. Wonderful sense of community. Good teachers and a diverse student body.
I think this school is great and it has helped my children a lot. The teachers and staff are really friendly and helpedful. I would recomend all parents to have theri children attend this school.
My son didn't go to Kindergarten, but he started 1st grade at Emelita, he is now in 2nd grade and is doing so well, I am a very proud parent and I beleive the teachers at Emelita are great.
