- At Emerald City School we believe that education should be a transformative experience. Academic interests should be kindled and developed, while areas of challenge may be strengthened so that they never present a roadblock to success. The foundation of our academic program comes from a deep understanding that each student learns differently and can learn. Thus, we use diverse curricula that develop students’ core skills and knowledge for college and career success. We optimize learning by evidence-based pedagogies, explicit skill instruction, and clear learning objectives. Our students thrive in small class sizes and 1:1 behavioral and content mastery interventions.
