I went to Emerson for a few years. I loved my time there. I felt school was a little easier for me in this setting with the work load being lightened. I loved most of the teachers there. They seemed to care a lot more about their students SO LONG AS YOU RESPECTED THEM. If you don't show respect you won't get respect. The school was small enough you didn't have many problems with not feeling safe.

I really enjoyed my experience while attending Emerson High School. I was able to accomplish 2 years worth of school in 1 year. Because of the classes we were able to develop positive relationships with the staff member as well as the students.
Emerson High School doesn't have very man clubs or extracurricular activities, but the few they do have are amazing! My classmates seem to be very involved in whatever club or extracurricular activities they are in, but there definitely needs to be more choices.
