Tours and Info Events

“A visit is the best way to determine whether a school is right for your child. Even a short visit will help you identify a school’s strengths and challenges. It’s also the only way to get a feel for a school’s climate.” –

Join us at one of our upcoming school tours to see K-8 classrooms in action, talk with current parents, and speak with faculty and staff about what makes Emerson such a special place to learn. For student-led tours, Middle School students will guide you through the school while sharing their experiences and insight.
