This is a below average school with incompetent staff and obviously uncooperative principal. If you have an option please enroll your child somewhere else.

Guy Emanuele has put my younger cousin, who is supposed to be in 2nd grade, into a combined class of 1st and 2nd graders. They did so without notifying her parents and we only found out at the parent-teacher conference. We have tried contacting the principal and and she has been no help in getting her changed to another class. We've also contacted New Haven Unified but they claim that they have no control over this situation. The curriculum is the same as what my cousin learned last year so I don't even understand how they could combine these classes and expect no parents to complain.

Both of my daughters have attended this school and love it. The teachers are fantastic the campus is clean and everything is working. I've been to other schools were their bathrooms are so dirty and unkept that I'm sooo glad my daughters go to a place that actually takes pride in not only their teachers and staff, but keeping their campus clean and in good condition.

I have recently graduated this amazing school! The teachers here are so kind-hearted and spectacular! I've attended this school ever since I was in kindergarten. My last year here at Guy Emanuele was so fun, but sad at the same time. My 5th grade teacher was Mrs. Stettler. She taught me so many things that I actually started to like school!! The whole staff there was very kind to every kid and treated them fairly. By the end of the year, I had matured and had grown into an independent young lady. On the last day of school I cried so much because it was so hard to leave this fabulous school with fantastic teachers and students. This school inspired me to be myself and to speak up for what is right and wrong. I truly miss this school. I wish I could go back in time and live elementary again. If you ever drive past this school or visit it, remember this review. Guy Emanuele is the best school I had ever been to!!!!

I would have to say this is the worst school I have ever had any experience with. This was my son's 1st year at this school and it was the worst experience for him mentally, academically and socially. Over all, the Assistant principal, the teacher and office staff seem to be incompetent in their positions. I believe the children and parents disserve more that this school currently can offer. Please! Do not send your child here. I know how important these reviews can be. I am not just a mad parent. I believe in teachers and parents need to work together to make a wonderful learning environment. We are moving to a different area just so my son can attend a better school. Some may have had a good experience, but I wouldn't leave your child s education and well being up to chance. The Kids First staff is wonderful !

This school is relatively new and has good facilities and a clean environment. The quality of academic programs depends on the student's luck of being placed with a great or not-so-great teacher. Music and sports activities are available. Most parents care about their children's education but many of them don't speak English.

This school has been a big disappointment. It is probably fine for below average kids, because there are many programs for section 1 and ESL students. Our fourth grader needs accelerated learning opportunities which have not been available. There is the GATE program, which she has tested for but for some unknown reason (the school doesn t provide one) still is not a participant. She scores advance on the CAT6 testing but nothing at school challenges her. The schools choir and dance program is at best mediocre currently. Office staff is not much help either and tend to pass the buck rather than help.

This is a great school if you get involved. The teachers really care about the kids. The only thing keeping this school from becoming a top performing school is parent involvment.

This is a pretty good school despite the fact that it's near a low-income area of town. The teachers are well-trained and dedicated. Many go the extra mile to help their students. There's also extracurricular activities for the kids such as choir and dance. On top of this, students have P.E. twice a week and extra sports actvities are available afterschool.There are also great resources like their media center and computer lab. Overall, the quality of education is good. The only really bad thing about this school is the parking situation. It's a daily nightmare getting my kids to and from school. The parking lots are small and they're always clogged with cars right before and after school. But it's a small price to pay for such a good school.
