Emery Park Elementary School Reviews
Emery Park has good teachers. What they lack is a principle with a back bone. All he does is make up things when directly asked questions about the health and safety that the school lacks. The bathrooms are disgusting and don't have soap, toilet paper or paper towels and his only response is that they are stocked in the evening. There have been several instances where weapons have been taken to school and parents are not notified. Also depending on the students color of their skin determins their punishment. Principle constantly lies when asked about any of this, and does not like when he is confronted by a parent. He does not back up his teachers, but instead tries to bully them, it's either his way or the highway.
The safety aspect of this school continues to lack. Since your comment of May 2009, the school has not improved their children safety progam. If you have a choice, DO NOT send your child to Emery Park School, nor any school that is administered by AUSD.
This school and many other schools in the Alhambra Unified District do not have a school website.
Emery Park school needs to improve on safety for all students. I have not been pleased with judgments when it comes to student safety.
