Emerson is great with top notch teachers and wonderful parent involvement. Emerson is our school of choice and have we have been so happy with the outcome. It really takes administration, students, teachers and parents to have a great school and Emerson is that school!

Emerson's parents are what sets this school apart - it's a true community. Nearly all of the teachers are amazing, going above and beyond daily.

This is our 4th year at Emerson and we are very happy to be here. We got in through school of choice and have been very happy with our choice. The best part of it is the school community. The teachers are very dedicated and the parents are involved and we have a strong PTA who is constantly looking for new ways to enrich our kids academically, not just socially. Lots of school events means you get to know your classmates and their parents which makes it a better experience all around. We've had some bumps with allocating Charter money, but now that the school gave up it's charter, that seems to be moving in the right direction, while we have kept the tight knit community.

Emerson is a little jewel! It has many dedicated, long-time teachers, a very active PTA, strong parent involvement and a strong sense of community. Proud to be an Emerson Eagle!

Although the loss of the charter meant the loss of some families, the core of Emerson is still as wonderful as ever. The teachers are amazing leaders and the PTA and parent involvement make Emerson a great place to learn and grow. Every child is accepted on their own terms and their educational and personal growth are encouraged and celebrated. I highly recommend this school!

I love this school. It really feels like a family, from the teachers to other parents every one knows each other. The budget cuts have really affected class size and activities but the teachers have been amazing at adapting! I love Emerson!

I am proud to call Emerson Parkside Academy my children's school! It not only has teachers that care about our children, but it also has a wonderful group of volunteers that help create amazing memories & advancements for our kids. The programs that Emerson have are unheard of now days. There are several reasons why I call Emerson a "Great Place to Learn", but here is just a taste of what it is like to be an Emerson Eagle: -Though LBUSD is providing our children with a brand new computer lab, our PTA is also in the process of purchasing an iPad cart that can go to the classrooms! Our students will get the added computer skills to perform well on the new Common Core testing. YES, that means 2 COMPUTER LABS! -Our parents have also raised enough money to have the students go into their very own science lab, where they can get hands-on experience with the standards that they are learning in class. -Our PE program is amazing! The students are learning about nutrition and their bodies, as they are actively participating in lessons provided by our very own PE teacher. -Emerson teachers rock! The spend countless hours planning and implementing meaningful lessons for our children.

I have a second grader at Emerson and my husband and I have been impressed with the quality education he has received so far at Emerson Parkside Academy. Yes, six teachers retired, but teachers are free to retired whenever they deem that it is right for them. The teachers that have replaced them are first rate teachers. The Special Education teachers are incredible and they make sure that every child is getting everything a child needs to grow and develop as a learner. My child has not had any issues with bullying on campus, so please go and visit the school yourself. Don't buy into a couple of bad reviews posted on this site. I think you will see what I see, a school that is doing everything it can to provide the best education for every child in the school. I'm a believe and I think you will be too!

I have 2 kids at Emerson. Although they have had to deal with budget cuts, like all other schools, they have been able to pretty well if you ask me. The teachers are always willing to have a conversation with me and my kids feel safe and comfortable there. There are many things I would love to see.. More supervision on the playground, PE every day, art and music... That, unfortunately, is not a reality in public schools today. I love the principal, the teachers and all the coachies (Coachie Hayes especially reaches out. I thought we were her favorite for a few years until I saw that she treats every single kid like her favorite). Thumbs up for Emerson!!

This was a great school that has quickly come unraveled. Six teachers retired this year! The class size has steadily gone up and up and up and the teachers seem overwhelmed and this is an assumption, but they seem unsupported as well. The class ratio and prior administration is what made this school excellent. The bullying is terrible and I can site many examples!!! Many parents wrote letters to the district because of the bullying and the passive principal/administration's inefficiency to deal with it. Like many families, we are pulling our child out.

I have had two kids go through the school and when the first one started I was very very happy with everything but over time things went downhill. My younger one graduated and is off to middle school and not a moment too soon. I believe that the change in administration (principal and councilor) has brought the school down and I believe it will only get worse over time. This is especially true for children with disabilities - both my kids have IEPs. The councilor does not really understand IDEA and tried to deny us an IEE after a very poor evaluation. Luckily I know the law. I worry about the parent that does not. There was a significant amount of bullying this past year and the year before. While the administration is poor, the school has excellent and caring teachers, as well as a great RSP. This is the reason for my rating of three stars. Even with the great staff, I am recommending that my nephew attend a different school when he enters Kinder in 2014.

Emerson is an excellent school. The teachers are very dedicated, patient, and committed to the development of the children. I currently have a kindergartener and I am very impressed with her progress and all that she has learned. Emerson hosts a well rounded environment where learning is fun. Very happy with this school.

No doubt about it, Emerson is a superb school. I attended from 2003-2009, and my sister is currently in 4th grade. I have watched it change over the years, through 3 different principals and a shift in ethnic diversity and academic achievement. I'm currently in the rigorous Poly PACE program, and credit my early years in Emerson's GATE classes for igniting my love of learning. All of the teachers my family has had personal experience with are truly phenomenal individuals who obviously love their jobs. I have heard minimal negative comments on teachers as a whole, which is to be expected at any school. I feel lucky to have experienced allday Kindergarten and many fun fieldtrips. The parent community has become more involved over the years, and now there is a Foundation in addition to PTA. Over time, Emerson's academic achievement has improved tremendously. We now have an 883 API, up from 738 when I began. No other school in LBUSD got the Distinguished School award in both '08 and '12! Next year Emerson will no longer be Charter. Although that could mean no more allday Kindergarten, this does mean that Emerson will get better district funding, like for music. Overall, two thumbs up!

(READ THIS WHOLE THING! DON'T ONLY READ THE RATINGS I PUT, OR MY FIRST FEW SENTENCES, BECAUSE IT CHANGES! FOR THE WORSE! BUT YOU MAKE YOUR DECISION, I LOVE IT, BUT READ THIS!) HI, I am a sixth grader, but i spent Kindergarden through fifth grade at Emerson! this school WAS awesome! they taught me so well, and have an excellent gate program!! it was the best school ever and i am very ahead in sixth grade now, because of the good teaching this school has given me!! it could not have been better, although the teachers are the best, and they teach every kid awesomely the whole office staff including all of our principles were retierd, they were all sooooo nice, but since they are gone, the new principle is mean, and hates anything other then class time, so no extra fun stuff! she even turned down a field trip to MARSHALL ACADEMY OF THE ARTS , one of the BEST middle school ever! because of "instructional minutes!' that is NOT fair. the whole office staff including her is rude, not helpfull, and does not look like they want to be there what so ever!! if we kept our old office staff this school would still be the best in the district, i am sure it's still up there but not for long!

I am the proud parent of an Emerson 5th grader. Emerson is an excellent school academically and the teachers are great. I am a little disappointed by the comments the parent made towards Kids Club. My son attends Kids Club and they are the most professional group of adults that truly love and take care of all the students in their care. My son enjoys both food options. They do not serve pop tarts and this service is optional! Judge a school by the knowledge your child receives not the optional snacks provided.

I agree with the reviewer below, but you child doesn't have to participate in the cheesy Tuesday or Wednesday breakfast. That is all extra and the parents have to pay for that. I chose for my child to not participate in those activities. The otter pops are also extra and you don't have to buy them. Kids club staff is great and with all of the extra kids this year, they are doing a great job.

I am a parent of a 1st grader at Emerson and have been very, very happy with everything! I am writing to respond to the reviewer who discussed Kids' Club and their Cheesy Tuesday and Wednesday Breakfast. My husband and I chose to pay the nominal fee to allow our child to participate in this because it is our choice. Nobody is forced to eat the food and there are plenty of kids who don't. We provide healthy meals for our child every day and feel that having a fun snack with cheese (protein) is not the end of the world. As for Wednesday Breakfast, it is a great mix of breakfast foods. In the 2 years that my child has been there, we have never seen a PopTart offered. There are eggs, pancakes, waffles, yogurt, granola, and yes, the once in a while donut. Otter Pops are a wonderful treat on those terribly hot days. Again, we can choose to not have our child eat them. I admire the dedication of the staff at Emerson Kids' Club and feel fortunate that my child gets to be a part of it. Kids' Club is a wonderful part of the Emerson community!!

School is pretty good but after school care at kids club is concerning. They give candy rewards and otter pops are available daily. They have "cheesy Tuesday" where kids are given a rotating menu of nachos, pizza, quesadilla and grilled cheese for snack and all is high fat. Wednesday mornings they do breakfast with such healthy items as doughnuts and pop tarts. Really wish they were in line with school districts menu guidelines for healthy foods. Kids club gets thumbs down from me, wish I had a choice to stay home with kids.

Although I believe the school should receive high ratings for parent involvement, I have seen the staff ignore the severe problems they have with bulling. My son stared going to Emerson at the end of 2011 school year and since he was a newer student he was bullied but since he was new I had thought it would get better the next school year. I had spoken with the staff about what was going on(taking him behind the building out of site and trying to put him in trash cans and not letting him leave). Nothing was done and they acted as if he deserved it. During the summer our son told us he always get bullied in the boys restroom becouse he looks white but his friend doesn't becouse he is brown like them (the bullies). I am half Hispanic but my son looks white. I don't think it is okay to bully no matter what. I understand the lack of funding and cutting of staff but we need to know our kids are safe when using the restroom.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
