About this school

With just over 300 students, Emerson Elementary is a small learning community. Yet our students reflect the wonderful diversity of Oakland as a whole, with a range of skin tones, beliefs, and languages. We have low student-teacher ratios, averaging 25 students in our kindergarten through third grade classes. With new murals on the walls, halls filled with art, music on the stage, and a vibrant, caring community, Emerson is a enriching space for kids to grow.
