    My nieces and nephew started here and now my oldest son started this year. I have to say Mr. B is the most wonderful teacher I HAVE EVER MET! He works hard with the kids... they excel because of his hard work and dedication to his students. I have talked to many parents who have had kids in his classes before and even this year and am not surprised at all they say the same.His Aid Miss Vanessa is wonderful too. My son loves going to school. Mr Beebe the principle is wonderful as is the entire staff. Everyone in this school teachers teachers aids office personnel principle right down to the door security and lunch people are all kind considerate and put the children first! I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this school!!!!

    My daughter attended Emmons School for K-4th grade and it was a fantastic school. She had excellent teachers who challenged her academically. The principal was also very involved and cared deeply about all the students. One of the best things about Emmons is all of the activities made available to the students. They had chorus sports clubs and a whole bunch of night time events for families- from tree-lighting and fall festival nights to passports around the US and a pajama party. We also enjoyed the Daddy/Daughter Dance and the Mother's Day Tea! It is a great school that is really built around the students.

    This is a great school. The teachers and principal get very involved with the students and fun activities for families after school. My daughter excels in all her academics and is part of the exceptionally gifted program. The principal of the school is great with the kids. He is cares a great deal for the students and is one of the nicest people I have ever met.

    leadership. This principal gets personally involved with the students and brings a caring and nurturing quality to the entire student body. He is caring and on the forefront of the latest and best educational research and practices. Consequently Emmons student and staff population functions as a highly trained well-educated close-knit family.

    My son attends Emmons and has done extremely well during the past 3 years. The school has implemented an enrichment program which he was selected to be a part of and he enjoys it immensely. I must say initially I was skeptical about the school but the teachers and staff have shown that they truly care about the children's intellectual growth and their well being. I give Emmons 5 stars.

    Emmons is one of the best elementary schools in Pemberton Township I'm very happy that my son is attending this school. The principal Mr. Beebe is wonderful and the teachers and other staff members are very friendly and treat everyone like family. All the activities are fun entertaining and exciting. They make learning fun for my child helping them maintain an interest in school. I can't wait for my other son to attend the 4 yr. old program.
