School Official Point of View

Posted April 1, 2013

The school enviroment provides small individualized instruction, Our teachers are caring, capable and certified to teach the students. The students enrolled are there because they want to study in an environment that is conducive for learning. We have a great reading skills program along with other subjects to help our students to be successful in classroom. Our students are of diverse background. We have some of the smartest students who have graduated and have moved on to work in various professions. Our graduates have studied in the field of sports, education, legal and the medical profession. If you are looking for a school for your child to achieve his or her academic skills and continue their education through high school, then your child is in the right school. Our international students come to our school from countries such as China, South Korea, Nigeria, The Congo the Bahamas, France, and Germany. EMA has great teachers, wonderful students, and supportive parents who care about their children' education. I quote "A mind is a terrible thing to waste."

My son is going to be a sophomore this year and will be returning to this school. The teachers are great.This is a small private school and has a home school type feel to me and that is what I was searching for.As for the kids NEVER being in class ,I would have to disagree. Please take in mind that some student visit this school to get tutored as Mrs.Mack has one of the best ACT and SAT preparation .Please feel free to talk to some of the parents also for information.Just like all schools this one is not perfect but it's a GREAT school.

Terrible! If you walk in there you would think its an alternative school. Students are never in class!

My children has attended this school for over 6 years. I like the individualized attention my children get because of the sacademic challenges they have faced in other schools. The teachers are helpful and qualified to handle the diverse groups of learning styles. I have noticed since my childen has been there is they have gained confidence in knowing that they can do the work. The teachers and staff make the students feel worthy of their accomplishments. The quality of education that is received by my children are well above expectation for me. Parents are welcome to volunteer if need be but most of the parents whose children attend are working parents. The avalability of music, sports and other extra curricular activities are a down fall for this school, but if you are looking for just academics and a place where your child can achieve, then I recommend this school.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
