After 3 years of homeschool, my daughter wanted to try a traditional school. We enrolled her at Emerson-Gridley. I will say that I do not think she was challenged at this school in a positive manner. The school is stuck teaching mostly material that is in line with the PSSA standards. There is no room to explore other subjects. Her teachers were fine, and she was lucky enough to have Mrs. Evanoff-McGeorge. I cannot find words to describe how amazing Mrs. Evanoff-McGeorge is as a teacher or person. She truly brought out the best in my daughter. Most of my complaints are with how the district manages schools. There is very little involvement from the administration. Unless your child is in trouble, you won't get any kind of response from the principals. I got the impression that some of the parents are only interested in the 'free-babysitting' aspect of school. We were lucky enough to be able to send our daughter to a private school this year, but I feel for the other children who do not have this opportunity. If the district gave the attention and resources to all schools instead of spending it on their one 'precious' elementary school, the district wouldn't be in such dire shape.

I was a student here at 4th and 5th grade and this is the worst school a kid could come to. Your son/daughter could get bullied or anything and the staff would not care. When I was here I got in fights everyday and it was bad, so if you dont want to get in fights then dont go to this school.
