Students are supported, engaged & taught to think. Classes are small enough that there is always help available & daily lessons can incorporate spontaneous discussion & new lesson direction.
Best decision to send my daughter to Emerson Prep. She blossomed intellectually and socially and was happy to go to school. Great teachers and leadership. The kids really count.
I think Emerson really understands education in every sense of the word. I'm glad my daughter is a part of this great institution!
Emerson's welcoming environment and tailored educational curriculum make it a joy for my academically talented child. He looks forward to each school day with exceptional teachers, stimulating courses, and students who enjoy learning.
Emerson is a great school for children who would benefit from small classes and who need flexible teachers and administrators who endeavor to tap into their students' interests. Emerson's curriculum is rigorous and comprehensive. Classes are accellerated, so they're longer: 90 minutes each. This extra time combined with the small class size allows teachers to get to know students and to understand how they learn best. The social environment at Emerson is unlike any I've seen. For reasons I still haven't figured out entirely, students who felt socially awkward or excluded in other environments thrive at Emerson. They support one another and many develop sustaining friendships. I taught at Emerson for several years. In my time there, I observed that once classes got underway, new students and their parents alike breathed a sigh of relief , as though they knew they'd found the place they belonged.
I went to Emerson for two of the best years I can remember. There are only about eight people per class so the teachers get really involved in the learning process. This method of doing things has turned even the most lackadasical among us into seekers of knowledge. Then you have the library: a quiet, comfortable and elegantly decorated place filled with classic texts and evolving technology. The environment is perfect for the growing young mind and many friendships have been forged there. Academically, prepare for a challenge. I promise it will not be easy. Classes are 90 minutes long and feature college level material. You'll want to befriend the excellent staff right away. Believe me, it helps. I still visit Emerson. The environment, staff and class sizes do wonders for the mind. Bottom line: go. you won't be sorry.
