    This is a very decent school for your children to attend. they do alot of extra activits such as field trips which the kids love. they do need to work on there fundings better instead of asking parents to supply the whole class with extra supplys.

    Small school atmosphere where everybody knows your name. Parental involvement is great. Lacking in updated technology needs in Elementary school. Schools lacks the motivation to obtain grants to get better equipment. Too many worksheets and lack of teacher monitoring.

    In the 3 years our daughters attended Empire we experienced the warmth friendly and family atmoshpere they have to offer. If it weren't for a move out of state our girls would still be attending. Mr & Mrs Roberts Jessica & Kaitlin (our girls)

    My daughters both attend Pre-K at Empire. I have found that the teachers are truly dedicated to making sure every child receives individual attention to insure the very best education possible. When my children began school neither could write her name they now both write their name unassisted. They know every shape some of which I didn't even know (crescent trapezoid etc.) You truly receive all the benefits of a small country school with top of the line teachers. Their confindence has grown 100% and their attention span has increased 150%. It's amazing. Every child should be so lucky to attend a school even half as wonderful as Empire Elementry. It's a 5 hands down.
