    I had two students in the pre-K Grow Up Great Program sponsored by PNC Bank and I must say that the program is excellent. I is absolutely one of the best academic experiences that your 4 or 5 year old can be exposed to. The twins left pre-K well equipped to tackle the challenges of Kindergarden. They learned social skills math skills writing skills music skills and art skills. Not to mention that the students go on amazing field trips. They have a partnership with the Detroit Music Hall and the children are exposed to wonderful cultural experiences. The teaching staff is dedicated collaborative and kind. They work with parents to give the student one of the greatest academic experiences that the city of Detroit has to offer.

    Emerson School has a staff who cares. we work as a team and letting our parents know that they are a part of our team. School is a second home to our students. they are not only getting the best education but learning how to love yourself and others. set your goals and give it your very best. always consider your consequences before you start your actions. life should not only be good to you but good for you. our students are our future and we contribute to that future through our students.

    The school has worked extremely hard to give all the students here a leg up. They have brought in amazing resources including a strong City Year team - 10 corps members who work to tutor mentor and coach students.

    Emerson is one of the few schools in Detroit really committed to learning. It is partnered with Communities in Schools Diploma's now and City Year to provide its students with as much support (in their neighborhood and the classroom) as possible to guarantee their success.
