I love this school. They have wonderful teachers, who really enjoy teaching kids. The principal Is great and very involved in all school activities as well. The front office and cafeteria staff are great and always greet kids with a smile. Mostly all staff is good except for a few aides who don''t like to do their job and doesn''t love to help kids. They talk nicely when parents or other teachers are around, but privately they don''t wanna help needy elementary school kids. All non-efficient aides need to go, please bring some energetic aides who love to work around kids. Except for these aide issues Emery is a great school.
