Emerson is a great elementary school in a great neighborhood. The staff and principal are AMAZING!
—Submitted by a parent


Posted May 22, 2009

As a partner of Emerson Elementary, we work closely with them to provide their students with ongoing 1:1 or small group tutoring and mentoring. We have come to know their administration and staff very well and have seen passionate, caring people who go above and beyond to support their students. Wendi Caporicci is the 'best of the best' of principals and runs a very tight ship but with a big heart. The PTO is also dynamic and with momentum growing, they are laying an even stronger foundation for student support. While they're important, test scores don't always do justice to how good a school can be. Emerson is a clean, safe neighborhood school that continually improves. If you're a caring, invested and involved parent, your child can thrive here. We recommend them highly, and if nothing else, suggest you come see the school for yourself...you may be pleasantly surprised.

The principal, teachers, and staff are quite committed to the development of their students, often working late and putting extra hours in committees to enhance their enrichment programs. I have been to a lot of schools as an educator around California, and it is rare to see this level of commitment. They just need more parent and community involvement, as they are carrying a great load.

I really like Emerson my brother's have attended and now my children are enrolled there. The principal is very hands on and my kids really love their teachers. With more parent involvement the could be even more outstanding!

Emerson is a good school, I think that if there was more parent involvement and funding was better we could have a excellent school.

My dauther attended this school last year in kindergarten. She has never taken pre-school before attended this school. After one year with Emerson in Miss Campos's class, my dauther has significant improvement. Few of other parents said the same about their kids' ability to read and write in this class and significant improvement in our kids. My dauther enjoys study here especially with her first teacher, Miss Campos. This school has a good after school program and it is free.

Recently, a very active parent group has informally been constituted to create an active PTA or other group of parents in order to increase local neighborhood kids to attend this school. Hopefully this will have a positive effect on the school's academic performance.

So far my son really like the school. His 3rd grd teacher is nice and is very informative....as well as the office staff.

Emerson is a small school located in the Temescal area. The principal Caroline Yee is great. She is supportive of staff, and students. The school has reduced sized classrooms (20 students per class- even in the upper grades). Emerson also has a strong Sports for Kids program which is run by a great coach. As a previous student teacher, I felt supported by my cooperating teacher and Ms. Yee.

Emerson is a wonderfully diverse school. Principal Yi is an awesome person and loves all of the children as her own. Although I believe the class work and the homework can be more challenging and parent participation should increase, overall I'm pleased with Emerson.

I have a grandson in this school and I like the fact that 4th grade teacher Mr. Allen seems to stick pretty close to the standards as set forth by the CDE. My grandson has maintained reading levels above the average, ending each academic year with his Enlish/Language Arts skills comparable to the year end levels for the next higher grade level. My grandson got a good headstart because we read to him even before he could speak, and we have him read to us consistently. His grades have always been in the top 5% of his class.

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.

More from 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.
