    "This school may be the best in Berkeley, certainly the best in the south zone. I love that the staff has been in place for years and adheres to the "Emerson Way", which makes the school run smoothly and puts children first. They have tons of enrichment classes and a very involved parent community. Its like getting a free private school education!"

    "My daughter has been attending Emerson for 4 years and it's been great. The teachers, principal and staff are top-notch. The other parents are engaged and caring. I can't imagine I'd ever find a place"

    "We have had two children at Emerson over 8 years. It has been a completely fabulous experience. Great teachers, a cohesive and inclusive community, and outstanding after school program are the highlights four our family. This year our daughter will enter 5th grade. There is no doubt that come next June all of us will feel a great sense of loss when she graduates. Final thought - the big reason this school functions so well is the principal. She is committed, hard working and has created a great team."

    "This small elementary in Berkeley, is a very community-minded, energetic school. The principal is exuberant and the school community reflects that. The Kids World After School program is very engaged and nurturing. The PTA is very active and hosts Cal Football Parking as a dedicated fund raiser every year for all home games. School spirit is strong and the student body is diverse. We couldn't be more happy with Emerson."

    "If you want your child to attend a community school, to be involved and work with other caring parents, then Emerson is a great choice. It is the smallest of the 4 schools in this zone (Malcom X, LeConte, John Muir) and feels safe and welcoming. . I volunteer one-hour ever other week in my daughter's classroom so I get to know the other kids and see what's going on. She has cooking every other week, and access to enriching after-school classes like carpentry. For parents who are on the fence between Private & Public: Question: are you really serving your children well by shielding them from the diversity they will experience here? Wouldn't your money be better spent supplementing our desperately needy public schools? Wouldn't you like to make a positive change in your community? If so, great choice!"
