    My child went to this school for 3 years. The teachers were good. Some of them exceptional like the first grade teacher and third grade teacher. But the principal breathes down the back of kids in the name of strictness. In the name of discipline she is unkind and unfairly targets some kids. She deals out severe punishments for even the smallest infractions. She doesn't welcome parental involvement or opinions. Overall the atmosphere in the school stifles children's nature and growth.

    This is a great school which made my child feel safe and happy from day 1. We just moved from a different country but my son never said he will not go to school. I liked his kindergarten and 1st grade teachers. Now the same with 2nd grade teacher too. She is great ! A very responsive and responsible teacher. The principal holds a very high respect amongst the parents. The PTA is very good .

    Emperor has wonderful teachers and support staff who work deligently to make this school so great.. Our son has had Mrs. Johnson (kindergarten) and Mrs. Jara (first grade) who have had a wonderful impact on his ability to learn and grow. All Emperors' teachers are stellar at what they do in my opinion. Being a teacher is certainly not an easy job. Teachers are one of the most important adults in a child's life. They not only teach the children valuable educational skills but also help them to development social skills and positive attitudes about the world around them. I have seen my son blossomed from a little boy to a responsible first grader. My family is forever grateful to the tireless teachers and staff for of Emperor. They work so hard throughout the year to make this school a success for the students and community.

    My son and daughter attended here K-6 and I was very pleased with the quality of instruction and the values instilled in the kids. A great school led by a great staff.

    Thumbs up for Mrs. Perini and her staff members! Great job have you all done! I am very happy that my kids go to this school. Strict? Yes. Unkind? No! During this summer vacation my younger kid kept saying that she could not wait to go back to school. Wow!

    Former student actually and proud to say I went to this school. The kids seem to be pretty well behaved although I don't know if that has changed over time but nevertheless the overall atmosphere is still friendly and warm. Teachers are remarkably involved and try their best to ensure that the students are doing their best. It was a good elementary school experience and whenever I visit I feel an incredible amount of nostalgia and comfort.

    I think the school does an amazing job brining quality education to this small multi-ethnic and mutli-class community. The principal is committed to serve the teachers so that the care will be filtered to the students for maximal learning. The partnership between the teachers and parents is strong too. I am proud to be a parent at Emperor.

    One of the best schools in the San Gabriel Valley. Yes the principal is tough which the teachers students and parents appreciate!

    This is our first year at Emperor. The principal has high expectation on both her staff and students. Students always have access to books not just in the library but also in the hallway. The soaring API score is a true reflection of the quality academic programs going on in this school.

  • (9 years ago)

    We've felt that the academic programs are excellent. They also do a superbe job with their citizenship and character building programs. Arts are provided in the classroom. Music is available in 4th grade and above. They also have other after school programs on site such as ChessMasters Chinese School Spanish Explorers Boy and Girl Scouts Student Council. Varies moderate to high percentage of parent involvement. There is an active PTA but there are problems getting more than a core of parents involved as officers.

    My son went to this school for 6 years. The principal is very strict and unkind. We had alot of trouble with her. She doesn't appreciate any parent involment and doesn't want to hear your opinion on anything. I can not recommend this school to any parent. The school is very unfriendly to parents.

    Emperor is a wonderful school. Mrs. Perenni makes it a safe place to learn. There is zero tolerance for bullying and children learn valuable life skills through their educational experience at the school.
