Emerson School Ratings & Reviews

October 27, 2016 Submitted by a community member
We love this school. My daughters both attend, one in 2nd grade and the other started Kinder. The teachers are amazing, the field studies wonderful. The academic rigor and project based approach is why we stay over our neighborhood school (which is also highly rated, but very large and traditional teaching methods). Everyone knows everyone in the school, and the community is so sweet. My daughters are bi-racial and feel very supported and the Diversity Group is great. In fact, I have seen way more bi-racial children in this school than my neighborhood school. Part of the reason we stay is because of how diverse the children are! The kids come from all socio economic levels and all seem to respond so well to the approach in student directed, project based learning. The project my kinder has on salmon this fall is outstanding, where they even dissected salmon in the classroom! The only cons are the high level of loitering in the area of Park Blocks. and the lack of extracurricular options after school. We go elsewhere for those. Also, I wish the school had more funding for the outstanding teachers and curriculum. Schools like this should be well funded and not ignored by PPS. A school like this should be a model for the other schools.

I transferred my son to this school when he was having problems at the public elementary school and he loved it. The teachers here are allowed to think outside the box and treat the children with more individuality than in the public school setting. I like that they take a lot of field studies and can explore the downtown area without having to pay field trip fees, etc. I currently have 2 of children enrolled and my experience is the same as it was with my son, however the school's lack of diversity is the reason I gave it 4 stars. They do have a committee of parents that are working towards changing the school culture and recruitment of more diverse families but it's a work in progress. Overall happy with the staff

I have a 2nd grader and 5th grader at Emerson and we could not be happier that our children attend this school. The project approach has been such a great experience for them and it has supported their intrinsic desire to learn. The teachers are exceptional at what they do and i feel so fortunate that my children have had such amazing people in their lives. Socially, I think Emerson does a beautiful job of creating community and expanding the curriculum to social learning and character development. My only complaint is that the school does not go through 8th grade. I think this school supports the whole child and I only wish more schools would follow their example.

We're not easy to thrill when it comes to schools, but our expectations have been far exceeded at Emerson. LOVE having the same teacher for 2 yrs and focus on experiential ed - our girl has been so motivated to learn. She knows almost all the students and teachers. The authentic assessments are great - instead of As and Bs, we get a 3 -5 report detailing her progress, and conferences where kids present their portfolios + assess their own progress. Social curriculum rocks. Our girl's special needs were handled very sensitively and respectfully. The space is tight, and there are few extra-curriculars (but we just go elsewhere). The positive discipline focus is great. Kids don't get yelled at, put their heads on their desks, etc. Instead, they're respected while still being held accountable for solving problems. We love Emerson.

We transferred our daughter from our strong neighborhood school to Emerson when she was in the fourth grade. Although we loved the community and teachersl, the traditional teaching style of "sit in your desk, be quiet, and listen to the teacher" compounded with worksheets for homework did not fit our child. She needed something more engaging. That is what she found at Emerson. The kids have more freedom of movement and are encouraged to work together. In place of memorization, they use art, drama and project work to fully lean. Fourth and fifth graders are given meaningful homework that directly relates to what they are doing in class, similar to the homework my middle school student is doing in that it is project-based. Despite what the other reviews say, they are held accountable for quality and completion of their work; not by "grades" or "punishments" but by serious, respectful conversations with their teachers. I can't say enough positive things about the school. It saved my daughter!
