School Reviews

Emmaus is a great school. I have grandchildren ages 5 1/2 and 11yrs. The faculty makes each one feel special and important. Dr.Purcell takes time to welcome every student daily. The students take pride in their studies and their school. I have found Emmaus students to be academically far above other students of the same age. They show respect for their teachers and their peers. I hope you will consider sending your kids to Emmaus, I know you will be pleased with the outcome.
