Open Quote I had two kids in Emerson, but I changed to a charter school, and I do recommend to rest of the parents to do the same. This school it's getting worst and worst every year. The academics are very poor, there are not involvement of the community or parents. The principal, assist principal, staff, and teacher are not there for the children, they are in the school everyday just for the gossip and of course the check. My two girls were loosing their time in Emerson, no learning.
There are bully in fifth grade that hit the little ones.
This is one of the WORST school ever in south Florida.
Now my girls are much better in the charter school, no bully, academics are excellent, they have diversities of programs (music,art)math and science are the best.
Thank God I took my girls out of Emerson elementary school. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
