love the science program, robotics, out door classroom, recycling, jet toy Olympics,starbase, Detroit zoo, RIF book distribution and hard working teachers.excellent school
The students are afforded an excellent opportunity to learn a variety of science skills!
Good teachers are overwhelmed with too many students. This is the problem with Detroit Public schools not that of Emerson. If there are too many unruly students, than that should be first addressed in the home. I have no problem with the teachers. However, I have a problem with parents who complain about the school, but fail to volunteer in the school clean up day, parent teacher conference or volunteer.
I use to attend emerson and it was excellent thats when DPS provided sewing, cooking, shop, gym every day. What a drastic mistake when the special classes were taken out of these schools the kids are restless and becoming more and more dangerous. emerson has went down and its hard to believe, the neighborhood is still nice, you would think by the way the children act they are teaching themselves totally and are running the school as far as behavior. I've seen some of these children talk back to other parents like they were grown, and again were just talking about little children.
Too many unruly children, not enough teachers who care. A perfect example of exactly what's wrong with Detroit Public Schools.
