We believe that school doesn’t have to be boring; that if we challenge, excite, nurture, and engage the whole child, we can inspire a love of learning that will last a lifetime.
That’s the environment we created at Emerson School and there is simply no better place for gifted and academically talented students to learn.
Emerson's curriculum is crafted for students, not a test, and teachers have the freedom to make adjustments based on the gifts and needs of your child. Classrooms are safe places where cognitive and creative risk-taking is encouraged; where students learn by doing, by being listened to, by participating, and by working together.
Emerson is an environment where smart is cool, and every classroom is comprised of other gifted, unique peers who help and encourage each other to become their best.
It’s where children thrive, and we encourage you to learn more about how our school might benefit your child.
