Ralph Waldo Emerson Elementary School Reviews
Hoping Emerson Stays the same... I would like to see only the In district children. Once you let in the others we have trouble. It is a proven fact. Let us keep the stats where they are
Congratulations to the Emerson staff and administration for receiving this recognition. What high priase for the important work done on behalf of their students! Emerson's mission is, "We are committed to helping every child learn." Under Mr. Madeleine's leadership, the staff, together with parents, are certainly living up to this purpose. Fraser Public Schools is proud of the work done at Emerson as well as in its other five elementary schools. Emerson and our other schools are accepting other Macomb County students from now through Jan 15. Call 439-7004 for information.
Emerson is great! I have two girls, one now at FHS and the younger still at Emerson. All the teachers are just wonderful,with a great leader , Mr. Madeleine. I couldn't ask for anything better.
I have two kids at Ralph Waldo Emerson Elementary, and we are all proud to be Bulldogs!
My son had to move to Emerson when Dooley closed and I believe it has been the best thing to happen. He is now a B honor roll student in FHS and has the beginings of a very bright future that comes from the dedicated teachers at Emerson. Mr Madeline leads an A+ group of teachers who genuinely care for each stuents future. I also have a younger son and a daughter currently in Emerson. My son has a learning impairment and recieves help from a group of teachers who will help him on his way. My daughter is adjusting well to first grade and has an excelent teacher. I look forward to the first day of school for our toddler and know he will be in good hands in Emerson Elementary.
I went to Emerson as a child and I moved back to Fraser once I got married so my children someday could attend Emerson. My daughter has been there for 4 years now and it is better than ever! You will not find better teachers and staff anywhere! Emerson is a great school and I am so glad my daughter is a student there.
We've been a part of Fraser schools for 4 years and have been very happy with every aspect. We love the teachers our children have had.
I have loved Emerson since my oldest daughter started K. She is now is 9th grade. I moved to this district when I found out we were expecting. This has been the best decision we could make. I have 2 daughters still in Emerson and it is a solid learning environment with a GREAT and CARING staff. I can't say enough good things.
I went through the Fraser School District and always wanted my child to attend a school in Fraser. We moved back to Fraser when my daughter was in preschool and I can't say enough about this school, the teachers and staff. My daughter loves going to school at Emerson!!
Emerson is an excellent school from all angles. The dedication of the teachers, staff and parents is remarkable. The building itself is bright and cheerful. The children are respectful and seem to have a desire to learn. I could not be more pleased with a school.
The staff and the parents care about the children and their education. Great school to attend.
My daughter transferred from a private school and everyone was very welcoming to her. The teachers are supportive and work well with parents. This year there seems to be more problems with classmates disrespecting each other and her teacher does not always take care of the problems like in prior years. Having a sixth grade in the elementary school when most districts only go up to fifth grade is of some concern. Overall, most parents I speak to really like the school and feel it is a good learning environment for their children.
Emerson is an interesting school with good opportunities. However, I feel that I'm not being challenged enough. My teacher constantly repeats things in class because other children goof around and don't listen. I'm unhappy and glad this is my last year. I have had a couple good learning experiences but I am finally just starting to get annoyed by other people especially immature boys and girls who are gossip addicts.
The teachers at Emerson take the time to make sure all students are making the grade!!!!
I have enrolled my daughters in private schools, charter schools and even attempted home schooling to provide the best education I could for them. I was nervous about having my daughters attend a public school, but am very happy I did. We have been at Emerson for 6 years and would not dream of sending them to any other district. I have been very pleased with Emerson academically and also with their extracurricular activities. I feel there is a happy medium and that is exactly what my children need!!!
My family has been a part of Emerson Elementary for 9 years and counting. I think the teachers are the best, very dedicated. The curriculum is great at preparing the kids for the upper grade levels. The principal is involved with the kids and their events. I am very happy to have my kids in this school.
I would hate to have to send my chid anywhere else after experiencing what an elementary school truly should be!
I am very proud that my son is an Emerson Bulldog! The administration, teachers and parents work together to make Emerson Elementary a wonderful place for our children to learn and develop.
Excellent School because the parents and staff care. I highly recommend this school and school district to parents looking to provide their children with the best possible education.
This school is great. The teachers and staff care about our children and do give the extra time needed for struggling students with tutoring or direct the parent to get the extra help needed.
Love this school and everything they do to make sure every child feels special. Couldn't imagine him at any other school
This is my child's third year and I have been very happy with the quality of education and activities offered at Emerson. The teachers and staff take an active interest in my child. Children are encouraged to be creative and use their strengths to enhance their learning experience. Communication between parents and staff has never been an issue and I have always found the teachers very receptive to questions and concerns, and the same holds true for the principle and staff. My child was a transfer student and the entire school (teachers/staff/students) went out of their way to make Emerson a very welcoming place. They were, and continue to be, very successful.
This is our first year here at Emerson & we are VERY pleased with Emerson Elementary & the Fraser School District. Being new to a school district has NOT been as difficult as I anticipated since EVERYONE I have met with has been extremely helpful & nice! Thank you for a wonderful transition & we look forward to our 2nd child starting kindergarten here next year as well!!!!
This is my seventh year at Emerson Elem. and I just love it!! All of the teachers and staff are very helpful and know all the students by name. They care about the children and provide a wonderful learning enviroment.
i feel blessed that my children are fortunate enough to attend Emerson. Mr. Madeleine and all the staff truly seem to try to get to know all our children, and they really seem to have their best interests at heart. My housing situation is not what i had hoped for, but i have decided that i will stay put as long as my kids are at Emerson, and will stay in the district until they graduate, even if i have to stay at hanover grove.
The teachers take time to show how much they care everyday.
I have two children, one who just finished Emerson and one in first grade. All employees at the school are outstanding. I highly recommend this school to anyone looking for an excellent education for their child(ren).
I have 2 childern currently attending Emerson and am very pleased with my childrens education, socially and academically. The teachers are truly caring and experienced induviduals. The administration team is also wonderful and very helpful to families needs. I am also very impressed with the overwhelming parent involvement. We have made many friendships in the last 5 years that we will all cherish a life time.
Excellent school. High standards and expectations.
Emerson Elementary is the best. I have two children in this school. The teachers and staff are outstanding. The school is small enough that the children are not lost in the shuffle. I am so thankful that my children in this school!
The teachers and administration at Ralph Waldo Emerson Elementary are very committed to helping each child achieve his or her full potential. Although my daughter was a good student in another district, their standards were not on par with this school. When we started at Emerson, her teacher worked with her to get her "up to speed" with this school's standard of excellence. We are glad we made the decision to send our daughter to Emerson.
I have 2 children attending Emerson Elementary, this is our 3rd year here. I could not be more happier with the progress my children have made academically and socially. With both partents in full-time working conditions contact with the teachers is never an issue with the e-mail systems, progress reports and planners, I never worry about any missed assignments and we always know our childrens progress or anything else that may arise, we're always informed. I highly recommend Emerson to any family looking for a great school with a supurb staff!
Love the community, staff, and parent group. A group of well educated educators who put our children first!
This is my third year at this school and I am very satisfied with my childs education opportunity. The classroom management and the building management is above par, which says alot for the administration at the school. The activities provided for the kids and families are adequate and parent involvement is great! While the Fraser Public School district is highly recommended in the area, I would highly recommend this school to anyone with a K-6 grader entering the district.
