Positive experience - Our daughter is at Emerson Elementary and we/she love it. They are known for their computer lab/program and all of the kids enjoy it. We had Ms. Kim Etzel for K-garden and we have Ms. Kim Nichols for 1st grade. Both are excellent teachers and adored by our daughter. The music and PE teachers are also wonderful, very creative in their presentation.
Another positive - Homework policy at Emerson is to hand out the assignments on Thursday and have them due the following Thursday. This is great for working parents (gives you the weekend to work with your child rather than at night Mon-Fri when you are exhausted) and works well for children of divorced parents who spend weekends at alternating parents homes.
The PTA is very strong at Emerson and there are lots of additional programs provided for the student body as a result of PTA funding. Our daughter is in a "Crazy Chemistry" class and really loves being a scientist for a day.
