    HORRIBLE SCHOOL! Serious lack of common sense with faculty at this school. No communication with parents. The principle and assistant principle are both below par. Do yourself and your children a favor and find a decent school.

    All three of my children and all three of my grandchildren have attended/ or attend Emma. My youngest grandson is in the 5th grade Ms Miller's class and Emma by far is the best school in the area. Thank you Teachers of Emma for all you have done for my children. You are the best!!!!

    Over a 20 year period having my children attend Emma School many foster children and now my grandchildren I think Emma is the greatest. I have watched it grow over the years to become even better. Thank god for the wonderful teachers the academic programs and extracurricular activities the school offers. I only wish they still had a head start program available. The cuts that our president made have hurt many children by taking this away from Emma School. The head start program and teachers were top notch and we need head start to return. There is a lot of pride in this school and it shows the second you enter the door.
