Emerald is a true gem - led by an energetic principal who cares about every single student (she knows every kid by name within about a week of school starting) and is present in the halls and classrooms every day. The teachers and support staff are passionate about education and work hard to reach each student wherever they are. Emerald is part of the No Place for Hate program and is very inclusive of all students from all backgrounds. Every child has the opportunity to thrive at this school.

Great school..Mrs. Samara , the principle, is so professional and hard worker. My son went to the school in first grade.. His level was low in kindergarden..they worked with him so hard and he is now a great second grade student. There are many fun activity in addition to the academic proficiency level. Even the security is perfect. My son loves the school so much and loves their teachers. Thanks Mrs. Samara for making Emerled the best school :)

We recently moved to The Boulder Valley School District and Emerald Elementary was the school we belonged to. And although it was in the middle of the school year, it was very easy to enroll my son in kindergarten. Being from abroad and my son not being proficient in English, we were a bit afraid about his adjustment. Everyone (kids, teacher, principal and staff) were very friendly and helpful. They welcomed our son so well he absolutely LOVES going to school. He has also learned so much in the 2 months he has been attending Emerald. They have fun activities for the kids and family and are very active within the community!

Great Principal and staff. But the small group work and the progressive thoughts are not yet translating to test scores. Parents place a differing weight on test scores and that is fine. However, if your child moves away from Emerald they are likely to be behind in their new school. The school is very diverse which is much appreciated. Like any school, a bond with and a trust for the teacher is key. Emerald has many good teachers.

I love this school! I have 2 children attending- soon to be 3 and I couldn't be happier! Students are constantly working in small groups at their current level which is wonderful since there is a wide range of abilities in each class. I wish there were more extracurricular activities after school. The principle and teachers are great!
