My kids love it there. They came two years ago to the school and have been learning and having a good time.

I am a Parent of a 1st grader and an 8th grader at Emerson. The discipline seems to be intact, however the Teaching methods warrant improvement. The Principal seems quite lenient on the Teachers as far as the expectations of what is required and decent. They don't seem to go over and beyond. The ratio is very unbalanced, as the majority of the students are African American, the most of the teachers white.

This school is in need of serious reform. Although it has gotten better over the last couple of years, there's still plenty of room for improvement. i think if they had more parents involved, it would make a world of difference.

This is My own personal opinion of the school. They do not challenge the students who have potential for success they lump them all in one catergorie. I do not like their methods at all. I am praying for a way to put my child in a school that will meet her at the level that she is on not the one she was at when she was not even in school. My child has expressed to me on several occasions that she is bored and they are not teaching them like they should.It is like the teachers for the most part do not care about the students.

This will be the second year that my son has attended Emerson. He's now in the 1st grade and I think that Emerson strives hard for education. When my child is not giving his best potential, his teacher always sends me a note home or calls me. That way we are on the same page. However, sometimes the teacher tend to go over board with this 'NO TOLERANTS POLICY'. Especially with my son only being in the first grade. I think the teachers need to lighten up a little. Always remember that they to was once a child. And every child is not trying to blow up the schools.

My son went here for Kindergarten and I must say the teachers were very dedicated. They got or tried to get the parents involved in all aspects of teaching. After Kindergarten my son can read and write at a 1st grade level thanks to Ms. Ceisel and all the other hardworking Kindergarten teachers. I applaud them for all the hard work tha they do.
