    "My son started Kindergarten at Emerson for the 2013-2014 school year. Prior to the start of the school year I never received any information I had to go online and find out when school started.On the first day of school I met with his teacher and talked to her about her plans/curriculum for the school year and she answered all my questions and seemed to be very nice and enthusiastic about the start of the year. My son was a transitional kindergarten student and after the first week she made sure I knew he was. Anything that happened she blamed it on his age but in actuality it was because of her. She was very intimidating her actions and her tone were. When we went to back to school night everything she had to say in reference to the TK students was just so negative like she wasn't gonna do her best to teach our children the necessary information that they need to know to move on to the next grade. Well I was very pleased when my child was switched to Mrs.Sykes kindergarten class where he was taught the necessary information, excelled like I knew he would received multiple awards and is now moving on to the first grade.Thank you Mrs.Sykes!The office staff is very nice and friendly."

    "I transferred my children to Emerson from their home school Highland over the summer not knowing the principle was going to change, but at the time when Mr. Mc Combs was there everything was great, staff was very friendly, the custodian I have have to say does an AWESOME job, always cleaning, never once have I seen him sit down, hes great.. Well come the 11-12 school year we get Mr. Bouton, whose great as well, but boy does he have some major changes for that school, he also is VERY much more stern which I totally believe is rubbing off on the staff, now they are not as friendly, they can give a whooo about your concerns.. The teachers overall, I have a 4th grader whose teacher can seem somewhat careless at times, I also have twins that are in the same class, Teacher Mrs. Moreno, Boy I didn't even know that lady could talk, well at least to me she hasn't yet.. I know there are some great teachers at Emerson but I guess you just have to get lucky an get one.. One thing they DIFFIDENTLY NEED IS A CROSSING-GUARD, I can't begin to count how many kids I have seen almost get hit by cars/buses, RUSD we have to remember THINK SAFETY FIRST for these students...."

    "If you have any ability to attend another school please do. There are a few..and I mean only a few teachers that are skilled enough to teach at Emerson, the principal needs to be more aware of his teachers skills. There are huge safety concerns, beware of your children on the playground, there has been several serious injuries to children while at this school, do a quick news search. Terrible test scores and the children barely learn. If I had it to do all over again My children would had never attended, we are now playing catch up at their new school due to the lack academics at Emerson. Due to safety concerns and lack of academics any good parent would go elsewhere. Since this is a title 1 school you should be able to transfer...I would recommend it!"

    "What kind of school is this.??? How can such a great school have bad API scores so many years in a row. Shouldn't parents want the best education for their kids? If all California schools have to meet the state requirements and they get the same material to teach the kid, why should some schools fail while others do well. I feel bad for the teachers who actually give a dame about making a difference because they are classified with those who have bad attitudes. If a teacher cannot control their own behavior, then how can they teach your child?? Wake up, parents!!!"

    "we have enjoyed the past 5 yrs at Emerson My kids have had Wonderful teachers that were very dedicated to their students. Mrs Folger, Mrs Sykes, Mrs Gonzalez, Mrs Herrera , Ms Nieto and Ms Turner just a few of the many teachers that make a difference in the lives of their students. My kids have loved working in the garden and eating the fruits and vegetables they helped cultivate at the salad bar at lunch. My 5th grader last year was in the Music class and was proud to perform with the band at the end of the year. The Principal and the kind office staff all know my kids by name and always have a friendly word. I have been impressed by the School choir's performances at assemblies. My son is looking forward to 6th grade Science camp and is actively fund raising. Thank you Emerson Staff!"
