Emerson School Ratings & Reviews

Emerson is about so much more than academic excellence, which is the reason we originally chose this school. It is a caring community of educators who truly love my children, are passionate about teaching, and inspire a lifelong love of learning. Equally important, Emerson teachers build character in our children by reinforcing values that we teach at home-- respect, honesty, inclusion, cooperation, integrity, commitment, compassion, and gratitude. We couldn't be happier with this outstanding school and the wonderful families who are part of this community.

Emerson has been such a positive experience for my family - both the kids and us adults! My kids have been at Emerson for seven years now. They are thriving academically - they both love going to school, enjoy learning in every subject, and are being prepared to be independent, critical thinkers for the rest of their lives. It's an incredibly warm community with teachers, staff, and administrators who take the time to really get to know you and your child. I was reluctant to enter the world of private school, having attended public schools my whole life...but Emerson defied my stereotypes of private school in every way. I do not see overt displays of wealth or materialism and most families and kids are down-to-earth, creative, and interested in fostering a strong learning environment. Totally satisfied customer!

We transferred our child from a very good AAPS elementary school where he was nonetheless bored and didn't particularly want to go in the morning (and this is not to mention some disruptive children that the school had difficulty dealing with). The move to Emerson was an instant and lasting change. He is typically excited to go in the morning, and the teachers are able to keep him challenged. Other parents I have talked to have experienced a similar transition from other schools (even private ones) to Emerson.At Emerson, the small class sizes appeal to me as well. It helps the teachers and it helps the kids, no doubt in my mind. I think it also helps bright kids to be surrounded by other bright kids, especially those that are talented in different ways and help each other out, which they do here.The extracurricular activities are top-notch, from the music program to robotics (regional champs), from theater to sports (soccer champs, as I recall). I don't know of many elementary schools that start extracurricular choir, band, and orchestra in 3rd or 4th grade, but this one does. That's in addition to the normal music class that everybody takes. The art teacher is so inspiring that many kids stop in for 'open studio' during lunch break.There is a lot of dedicated parent involvement, at least as much as you would see at a very good public school. They can also be very generous; there is a significant scholarship fund for those with a gifted child who do not have the means to attend otherwise.If you have a gifted child, do not be scared off by the price of the testing required to apply - please just ask if the fee can be waived and the administration will consider your situation.

this is the best school I've ever been to. the teachers are funny and the homework isn't too much to handle. it also offers after-school activities like basketball and soccer. I strongly hope more people go to this school.

Emerson has some truly outstanding teachers and families. However, these are the exception rather than the norm. The middle school may be better than most of the Ann Arbor public schools, but be prepared for a very maladjusted experience. Teachers are, for the most part, too busy (they have 50-something children they have to deal with after all! - tell that to a public school teacher and hear the sympathy) and the children are, for the most part, from extremely privilege families who consider "Pretty Little Liars" to be acceptable social rules and TV programs for their children. Then there are the academics - while the expressed goal is to prepare children for high school, there is an over focus on grades and achievement and minimal focus on actual "learning." If your child has any special needs whatsoever, the school will write a list of "accommodations" but individual teachers do not always follow them and there are very few resources available for children to get help during school hours even though there is now a special needs resource teacher "available" to help middle school students. The current middle school administration seems to equate participating in academic competitions with intelligence and students who are otherwise smart but not interested in competing against their peers are treated as second class citizens. That said, there are some truly dedicated and devoted teachers still there. The rate of turnover and retirements in the past couple of years is indicative of where things are. Sad that this has not been a better experience.
