Emerson Elementary School Reviews
Emerson Elementary is a warm, caring environment where my up and coming second grader has thrived. The staff is committed and the community is caring and ready to be involved. I am an involved parent at Emerson Elementary and will strive to do my part within this community to assist Emerson. I challenge all parents and guardians to do the same for our children and our neighborhood. Support your Oakland neighborhood school!
