Emerson Junior/Senior High School Reviews
I think that the quality of education is very good for a public school. However, the quality of education is not the problem. It is the fact that student voices aren't heard, administration is trying to make everyone "equal" yet treat AP kids better just to make the school look better. Let me explain. As an NHS officer, I disapprove of a program where us seniors help failing 18 year old seniors try to graduate just by telling them "how to study". I disapprove of telling 20 people who is failing what class without their consent or their consent to even participate. Yet when the flaws of administrations actions are brought up, nothing is done. They want to abolish honors and CP classes, putting people of different learning levels and needs together, to make them "equal". They prevent certain students from taking an AP test just to make the grades look better for the school, and only provide Quarterly testing for AP classes. It seems that this system is only helping AP students success.
Emerson is a small community, and because of that, it's called a family town. It is very noticeable at school, because everyone knows one another. This way, it is easy to make friends and be connected to both your peers and teachers. People work together and help each other there. Whenever you have questions or concerns, you always have someone to speak to. With less students in the classroom, your every question is answered and you personally develop faster than anywhere else. You feel as though you belong there, because everyone is included. I will be a part of Emerson Junior-Senior High School all my life, because memories of my experiences there will last forever.
EHS is truly a special place. For such a small school, the administration does whatever they can to provide a vast amount of opportunities for students to get involved in based off of their interests. I’ve met some amazing people, whether they are friends or teachers, and the bond that connects the Emerson community is one that can never be broken. Your experience at EHS will depend on whether or not you enjoy a small school setting. It allows students to get direct help and attention from teachers, but it also keeps you in a bubble with the same group of peers, making it difficult for some people to branch out. It’s all about preference.
