The Good: Newer classrooms & tech (smart boards & laptops the students share with another class). Emphasis & Attempt at STEM (Steminars, NASA Fridays, some hands on projects, etc.), Some good teachers with good personalities (a combo sometimes hard to find in the district). Some of the parents seem nice and down to earth. The Bad: Great deal of Bullying (both psychological & physical) by some of the students (not much is done about it, other than a cover-up despite many reports). Out-of-control behavior by a significant portion of the students in the classroom. A couple of the campus supervisors yell a lot at the students. A few of the teachers are rude, cold, and/or moody. An administrator is rude and mean to the parents and students (you don't feel like she's there for the parents & students at all, but for her job). Some not so nice & ignorant parents who love to gossip about other parents & students when they don't know the truth of the situation and of themselves or their children (i.e. the parents who has the children who bully others). I would have to emphasize that there was a lot of bullying psychological and physical by the students at Emblem.

The review dated June 10th below is based off of one bitter parent that didn't get her way at a meeting. She likes to stir up trouble and quite frankly is a drain to deal with. This is a FANTASTIC SCHOOL with PHENOMENAL TEACHERS and support staff. We left our old school to come to Emblem and we have never regretted the decision. There are so many activities at Emblem to join in and give your child an excellent elementary experience. We love our school and if you can get in to Emblem I highly recommend it as an option.

Unfortunately, there's a lot of bullying at this school, psychological and physical bullying by the students. The School & District deny, minimize, or deflect what really happened and nothing much is done about it. Significant portion of the students have trouble controlling their behavior in the classroom and out in the playground. Don't believe the hype about the STEM (the STEM program is minimal). They just voted to wasted $17,000 of PTA money (money that parents and students worked hard for) on an electronic billboard for the school. That's right, they spent $17,000 on an electronic billboard, when they only have $27,000 in the PTA account. It doesn't make any sense. This money should have and should be spent on enrichment programs for the students (and the students didn't get enrichment like art, music. They didn't even get a field trip the past two years). It has newer classrooms and smart boards and some good teachers that's about all.

Staff is caring and friendly and kids learn by example. Even though my kids started attending this school more than half way they had no problem to adapt.

Emblem is a fantastic school that offers ESTEEM program. They often have NASA, technology and many other events. Principal is enthusiastic and interacts a lot with students. Teachers/parents communication is also great.

We enrolled our two children to Emblem when it reopened in Fall 2013. I must say we were a bit skeptical at first about the schools ability to incorporate the advertised STEM curriculum, but the principal Mr. Baker and the teachers really exceeded our expectations. Science related sessions (STEMinars) twice a week, NASA Fridays, many hands on projects incorporated into core subjects - all are huge hits with my kids. Great leadership and wonderful PTA. Please keep it up.

Emblem Acadamy reopened Fall of 2013. My daughter started fourth grade August 2013, and I am very excited about the STEM focus of this school. My daughter's teacher is wonderful, she gets a lot of support from her teacher. Her teacher is committed to the success of her students and she is always there to help in anyway to ensure your child succeeds in her classroom. The Principal Mr. Baker is wonderful, he is committed to the success of Emblem Academy.

The principal of Emblem which resides now at Tesoro Elementary has been an absolute nightmare. The principal also has no regards for gifted students going as far to provide no gifted work for my 6th grade son. At one point we left 6 messages over 3 days with no return calls which is pathetic. I would never make my child go to Emblem.
