    This school is AWFUL! I feel so bad for the teachers. It is part of a terrible district as well. I agree with the other reviewer about the office staff being bad. Yes they can be nice but they don't seem to care. The school could care less about informing parents or even taking things seriously like enforcing parents to be involved! Kids are sent to school SO SICK. and teachers try to call parents but if parents dont want o come the office staff just sends them back to class. Kids are ALWAYS sick at this school. My kids have to be hospitalized TWICE because no one cares to make parents have consideration. I know other schools enforce rules regarding these types of things.

    my daughter has been here for about 5 months already and i seem not to like this school. The staffs who works in the office are careless. There was a time where i brought something to the office and ask them to gave it to my daughter the office didn't bother to give it to her until the next day. There was another time where i totally forgot that the school let out early. They didn't call me and let me know that my daughter is waiting in office after an hour and something later. overall i am not satisfied with this school. i feel that her old school at elysian heights is a better school.

    our family just relocated in monterery park we are new to emerson this year. My first impression of the school was very satisfiying. the teachers are wonderful as well as the office staff run by mrs. lopez. and the principal Ms. Knight is very involved a breath of fresh air she makes the whole school a wonderful place for children to want learn and feel comfortable while there away from home.
