    "I'm currently a 7th grade student in Emerald middle school right now and my experince there has been great, like in the 6th grade they had no common core so it was easy but now that we do have common core i think its hard but the teachers are amazing they might go hard on you nut thats because they care and in order to learn the most important thing to do is, Pay Attention. In emerald all the kids are great like there is no mean people its a bully free zone school which i think is amazing here to have a good time all you need to do is listin like follow school rules and if you are ever failing a class like ( Math) well like I am all you need to do is try to succed and if u dont succed at least you tryed or are trying but that will get u to the the top There is sports there there is 1. Soccer 2. Basketball 3. Flag football and we also have coding!!!!!"

    "The truth is I don't usually give anything the total score, but Emerald is one of the best schools I have ever taught at. If you like caring teachers and STEAM classes then this is the school for you. The teachers care about the students this includes clubs and tutoring. One of our graduates this year was actually voted El Cajon's student of the year. If you are the type of person that likes to work hard to get good grades this is the school for you."

    "My daughter graduated from this school in 2011. We were a little concerned, because she was moving from a highly rated elementary school to this one. Alli-in-all, the experience wasn't so bad. She was able to make good friends, probably with people from backgrounds she might not have otherwise met. I agree with the previous reviewer that the school took a turn for the worse during the 2010-2011 school year when the in-your-face principle took over and changed many things in an attempt to remake Emerald into a STEM magnet school. My daughter also really missed the popular band teacher that was laid off, because band was about the only fun thing at the school."

    "I can only rate this in regards to Spec. Ed., but academically they are great and have good teachers and staff that help kids learn and progress further. In regards to Social interaction for those students in Spec. Ed. it really seems like the teachers try to keep students segregated not only by the location of their classes but also during lunch time and not keeping their student informed of social events so they can grow in that area as well. I understand that funding may be limited due to the current financial situation the district is in... but such separation is a bit much in my opinion. Kids will never learn to deal with various social situations if they never get to experience them at their age/level."
