DISGUSTED!!!!! One word says it all, the administration the teachers and the kids behavior.I take pride in teaching my children, to treat others the way they want to be treated. These kids are are horrible, who is parenting them? My daughter has been bullied NON-STOP, and now that im threating to pull her out of the school, now they want to do something. The teachers dont act like they even want to be there, its more of just ther pay check. With a VERY small excep. of techers. I have meet with the principals over the bulling and for some reason the situation has not got any better its got worse! Now I have been a PTA president and in my personal opion this in one of the worst schools top to bottom regardless of its ratings. If you plan on sending your kids to this school, PLEASE take the reviews into consideration, I wish I had, because my daught is paying for it now.

Emerson is a super school, every grade level prepares the student for sucess. I love the way every child is encouraged and praised; and yes it shows in thier Exemplatory status. The new pricipal Mrs. Baiza has done a super job.

I am a parent and am very disappointed with the students and the administration at this school. My son has been consistently bullied, both physically and verbally, by a number of students. Each occurrence has been reported and subsequently ignored. The only interest in the staff and administration is ensuring the students pass the TAKS. I am to the point that I am withdrawing him from this school and placing him in a private school.

I am a teacher myself and I find it very disconcerting that all they do at the school is get ready for TAKS and on a regular basis recess is taken from them. I made a formal complaint against the administration and a teacher after my son was suspended for not telling a child I'm sorry. This school needs training on how to effectively deal with and communicate with parents and children.

I was very disappointed with this school, considering the 'Recognized' rating and shocked that the principal recieved an award. My 2 children were enrolled for 6 weeks in Jan 2008 before I pulled them out and place them in private school. The teachers are burned out with no support from the admin. I spoke with the prinicipal concerning a substitue who was cussing and calling the children names and the principal told me that the sub would never mean to hurt any of the kids. Basically, she blew me off. There is very little positive reinforcement, recess is taken from the kids as a punishment for every little infraction. By the time the kids are in 6th grade it is a joke. When there isnt a sub, the kids are grouped with another class that has a teacher and watch cartoons. Hoping the new principal this year can change things.

Emerson has been the worst experience for my child. Parent involvement is discouraged unless you are one of the chosen few. No feedback unless bad. Absolutely no positive has came out of this school year. No feedback on homework and nothing sent home to let me know if they are doing o.k. or not. very disappointed with a 'recognized school' and 'principal of the year' not impressed at all.

After experiences with 2 different North-Side Elementary Schools in Midland, Emerson stands out as the best. It is a great school for parent involvement. Join the PTA. We had over 250 parents and children at a PTA Spaghetti dinner in February. This shows a great deal of support for the school and the children by their parents and the PTA. As far as the education side of it, our child is exceeding much faster than she did at Santa Rita. Homework is a part of school. Do it now and they will be prepared for High School and College.

Emerson was no doubt a horrible experience for myself and my two children, ages 6 and 10. The principal and staff are no help whatsoever. Parent involvement seems almost discouraged, unless of course the child's parent is a teacher. Happy to say I have placed my children in a private school and have been very impressed.

Emerson has provided a first-rate education for my two children. The teachers they had were, overall, excellent!

There seems to be a lot of homework and very little feedback. The kids need to know whether they are doing the work correctly. Just doing it isn't enough. The teachers don't seem to work well together for switching subjects. The teachers aren't necessary teaching their strongest subjects. If a parent calls in a complaint regarding anything, they are told they are the only one who has complained regarding. There is no support for the parents. You almost wonder why you bothered and you won't do it again. The teachers are told who complained and you are then made fun of for as long as your child attends the school.

My daughter entered K this yr and it was the best experience for her. Mrs. Strieff is a wonderful teacher. My daughter was constantly in the top of her class and was in the highest reading group. All thanks to Mrs. Strieff! Highly recommended teacher, truely loves her job and cares for the children. As for the homework mentioned in the other postings, my daughter did bring home homework which I was not happy about, but it wasn't much and it really kept her up on her reading, spelling, and writing. All in all this school is wonderful.

I have two children at Emerson, and I have been, overall, very pleased with the teachers. They have been fantastic, from kindergarten on up. My only complaint? Too much homework! My children have about 1 1/2 hours a night.

STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
