Great School,Im Am A 4th Grader Today! After Emerson Is Hadley,Then North High,Last WATC Date:12/12/2011


Posted January 14, 2010

Emerson is a wonderful small school. It has a great community atmosphere. Everyone is so nice and friendly. Its smaller size really makes it easier for everyone to get to know eachother. I love the focus on virtues as well. Teachers there a great at working with each child on his/her particular level. My child has truly blossomed there :)

I have had my oldest daughter at Emerson for since Kindergarten and she's going into 3rd now. My younger daughter also started in Kindergarten and is now going into 1st grade. We LOVE this school. It is very small, which means you get to know a lot of the parents and staff personally. It's been a great place for our girls and we look forward to many more happy years as Emerson Friends.

My daughter is in first grade at Emerson and we really love it. It is a small school so she has a personal relationship with a lot of the staff members and there is a real sense of community there. There is a nice mix of kids from different backgrounds. Additionally, she does 'enrichment' sessions where she goes to another room to study with kids at her level. They are really challenging her.

This is a small school, if you don't start in Kindergarten you child will struggle to fit in. Also, this school is overly strict with policy and is not a good fit if your child has the slightest behaviors.

My son has been at Emerson for four years and it has been wonderful. The quality of the program is top-notch and school size reminds me of my small town school. There is very low tolerance for activity that disrupts the learning process of any student and the staff take a hard line against bullying. The virtues (respect, responsibility, self discipline, honesty, perseverance, etc.) are the center of the building blocks for learning.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Kansas used the Kansas State Assessments (KSA) to test students in grades 3 though 8, 11 and 12 in reading and math; in grades 4, 7, 11 and 12 in science; and in grades 6, 8 and 12 in history-government. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Kansas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
