Emerson is a "turn-around" school for students who find teachers who care and an administrator who sees an individual student not a name on a paper. Thank goodness OKC district has a place for learning when it hasn't been easy at the home school.
I THINK EMERSON WAS A WONDERFUL SCHOOL FOR ME ...FOR ONE IT GAVE ME THE A WAY TO STAY IN SCHOOL AFTER I HAD MY SON AS A TEEN MOTHER I WAS FACING THE FACT THAT THERE WASNT MANY OPPTIONS FOR ME AND THAT A NORMAL SCHOOL WOULD NOT WORK WITH MY NEEDS OR MY SONS NEEDS THE SCHOOL ALSO GAVE ME GOOD LEARNING SKILLS ON BEEN A GOOD PARENT AND I LEARN ALOT ABOUT FAMILY PLAINING AND RESPECT FOR MYSELF~! THANKS EMERSON ALTERNATIVE SCHOOL
Emerson was a God-send to me in my teenage years, and then to my son! They have very dedicated teachers, counselors and administrative staff. They are there for kids that don't 'fit' in regular schools for a variety of reasons and make do on a very limited budget.
This school is great!!! My daughter got kicked out of her home school N.W.C. And ever since shes been going to emerson shes improved a lot. She even got student of the year...Something she would have never got at her home school. The teachers are great and they focus a lot on their students. Its the best thing thats ever happened to my daughter.
