    Frankly I am shocked to read the negative reviews. My older son attended Emerson and I found it to be a wonderful place! We loved every teacher he had (and they loved him right back.) I have found the principal to be approachable and supportive and the kids really like him. I agree with the person who pointed out that most people who don't want their kids there are uncomfortable with the lower socioeconomic population. I stand by Emerson and am happily sending another of my children there next year.

    This school is great! The principle is wonderful! The Teachers my son has had have gone above and beyond what they need to do! They have taken time out of their lives to help him. And most importantly My son WANTS to go to school everyday. He has excelled since being there! I couldn't ask for a better school! If only all schools had educators like these!

    Counselors Nurses aids and principal all do not attend to the children s needs. The staff cannot be trusted nor do they *really* care about what is going on. Several things took place involving my child & other children and all were handled horribly & I was blown off by several staff members. They want parents to shut up and get over things quickly. I agree w/ a previous poster that the bulling here is also very bad & not handled how it should be. Staff is unprofessional & should all be re-evaluated. Ran into an old teacher from another school & shared my experiences and was told yes this school has many-many problems and that a lot (a lot!) of parents pull their kids out of it & that the staff is also treated unfair behind the scenes so that they in-turn are unhappy and do not do well in their jobs. I am by-far not a dramatic parent & am fair on each situation and everything I had to deal with at Emerson was horrible. My child will not be returning. Their testing grades are also very very low in the district. This school seriously needs an overhaul.

    It is amazing that people can say whatever they want without repercussions. Emerson is a great school with great families and staff. Most families that seem to have an issue with Emerson are people that don't want their children around children from lower socioeconomic households. The principal cares for the students at Emerson more than any other principal I have met and he supports input from students and their families.

    This is the worst school i have ever had my kids in the bulling by students is horriable the And where did the principal get his diploma. I will never put my kids back in Emerson

    The school lunches are not cooked to full degree good way to get a parasite. The pizza dough is very runny. I was going to put a note on the principlel's desk saying I was being bullied to the point of mental damage and this voice was like saying Don't do it... Dont do it... Don't do it... Now I know I would have gotten in trouble. But on the upside I said NO MORE EMERSON! and started going to NCA for 6th grade. The best school ever. But at Emerson 5th graders said the 2 worst curse word all the time. And I have learned so much bad stuff there that I know most of the world now.

    Great school in a little city. Public school in a family environment.

    The principal at this school hides problems like bullying then barely punishes and harbors the bad students. Worst of all he bullies the kids who stand up and tell the truth into not coming forward. If I had to do it again I would not send my children to this school. I do not feel safe leaving them there in the care of people who will not help them.

    We relocated from [another] School District at the beginning of this school year. My son has struggled with writing and reading since he was in the first grade. I had fought with the [other] School District sine he was in the first grade to find out what was wrong with him if anything. Seven months into this school year Emerson Elementary has done more than what [the other] did in 6 years. They are awesome. We know know that my son does not have a learning disability and what areas he needs to work on to improve. I am so glad that we moved to Snohomish.

    My child is in the behavioral program at Emerson. This class is a godsend. He is thriving--he is less stressed doing well academically and learning a lot. We cannot be more pleased. I would love to have my other child at this school. The staff is cohesive well-trained friendly and child-oriented. The principal at this school communicates well and is on top of everything. I have nothing but good things to say about Emerson.
