the kindergarten teachers are amazing! everyday my child is excited to go to school because his teacher makes it fun for him. the teachers attempt to get you involved in creative ways there's always easy ways to support the school. the upper grades are great as well! i have a child with ADHD and his 3rd grade teacher went above and beyond to find POSITIVE ways to handle his distractibility instead of just sitting him in the corner like in another school. i love this school and cannot wait for my youngest son to go there!

The Kindergarten staff is AMAZING!! The upper grades have very nice teachers as well but as stated before the K teachers are AWESOME! I actually sent my kids to Emerson for Kindergarten and then brought them back during 3rd grade to complement future public school experiences. The staff have VERY solid goals towards improving the reading and math skills of the children. The science projects were OUTSTANDING. Thank you Emerson staff for setting my kids on the path for excellent math science and reading skills!
I feel so fortunate that my third child is now going through Emerson. The staff is excellent. They truly care about the students and have high expectations. The small size of the building allows for the staff to know most of the students by name. It has the small-town feel to it.
