Open Quote Excellent teachers, great class sizes. Lots of opportunities to be involved as much or as little as you want. Emerson kids constantly rank highly through the middle and high school levels. Great family community. Close Quote

Open Quote As a parent of 4 students who all attended Emerson Elementary, I can say that we're more than satisfied with the leadership and teachers for all of our children. Many teachers go out of their way on a regular basis to be sure each and every child gets the attention they need and the parents receive the communication required for a successful learning and growing experience. The facility has been upgraded and the outreach and care taken for the special needs children go far and above expectations. Love the diversity of the children, making for easy social growth and transition into Churchville Middle School and then onto York! We all must remember the teachers and all staff aren't their to raise our children, but to assist in their development, and this school exceeds the needs for this. 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.
