  • My name is Natasha N.Aaron-Jackson, and I am the parent of three girls ages 11,9,and 14 years-old. My oldest started attending Emerson from August 2008-current year. Over the few years that my daughter has been attending Emerson Middle school I have noticed that the C.S.T State Scores have not been that high and varies between grades 6-8th. As a parent, these test scores worries me and therefore, encourages people such as, I to strongly volunteer to all students within Emerson Middle School some extra academic help(tutoring), so many students can better themselves on the C.S.T. exam given each year. Along with offering better academic strategies to studying,so this could help them in their current and future educational goals(high school & College goals).Emerson Middle School may be known for their negative disciplinary problems, but with a little academic support from parents like me, Emerson Middle School could rise above all this negativity.

  • Don't like Emerson, and it's in one of the worst areas in Bakersfield. Over my dead body will my grandkids go there.
