Welcome to the Emerson Public Schools


With over 1,200 students attending our three schools, we take great pride in welcoming you to Emerson: Home of the Cavos! As a school district steeped in a long tradition of academic excellence, student-centered learning and community spirit, we believe in the ability of our students to meet and exceed our high expectations.

As a district, we believe that it is our responsibility to provide our students with a comprehensive education in preparation for life, college and career. In addition, our schools focus on articulating, modeling and cultivating the habits of mind, body, and heart that promote the enjoyment of a fulfilling and good life. Finally, as a school community we seek to nurture the qualities of citizenship-initiative and adaptability that are central to a vibrant democracy.

Thank you for visiting our website, and please don’t hesitate to contact any member of our school community if we can be of any assistance.

Go Cavos!

Brian P. Gatens
Superintendent of Schools
