    My grandson is finishing Kindergarten with Ms. Aggard at Emerson Elementary in Wheaton. He enjoyed going to school every day; she is very sweet and patient. This school is organized and encourages social interaction. I am glad that he will be attending this school next fall.

    The teachers are very personable. They really care about each child. It's a smaller school so it's easy to get to know the other kids and their families.

    Emerson Elementary is the very best community-based school in so many ways. The teachers are just like family; their is laughter commaraderie and celebration each day school is in session. I love to be a volunteer for this school and would greatly appreciate Care2 granting us an opportunity. Thank you!

    We are a new family to Emerson and the warmth and welcoming has been wonderful. The teachers are first-rate. We have four children and have moved quite a bit due to my husband's occupation. Emerson far outshines any school my children have attended I only wish all my children could have been at this school.

    Emerson is a small community school where we as parents have each other to count on. We work together to be able to provide our children with a great education. Parents are extremely involved and work hand in hand with the teachers to provide consistency between school and home. We have amazing dedicated teachers that put their all into teaching our children. I couldn't ask for more in a school!

    I love the school because it is a neighborhood school where the teachers kids and parents are all part of the neighborhood. I think that leads to a more caring enviroment along with a safer more comfortable atmosphere for the kids to learn in.
