About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Emerson School's test results to learn more about school performance.
In 2011, Emerson School had 22 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Oregon average is 20 students per full-time equivalent teacher.

Emerson School Reviews
Our two children started this year and are very happy. The Project-based method seems to work very well, and the two-year blended classrooms offer a lot of advantages. The class size stays at about 25. The space is small, and the bustle of drop-off downtown leaves little time for 'conversations in the parking lot' (since there is no parking lot...) but the school puts forth effort with community activities. Very laid back atmosphere overall, from parents and faculty and the school seems very eager to be the best it can be. The wait list to get in is very long, but worth it. It feels very child-focused. A real gem.
