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 donít hesitate to contact any member of our school community if we can be of any assistance.

Proposed Renovation of the Emerson
Junior-Senior High School Athletic Complex
As part of the Long Range Facility Plan and ongoing district strategic goals, all three Emerson Schools completed construction this summer to renovate entrances to further support our commitment for the safety and security for our children, parents, staff, and community. Without sacrificing our long standing inviting culture of neighborhood schools, visitors will still enjoy the friendly welcome and personal contact with our staff to share the purpose of their visit before fully entering the school.
These impressive solutions are in addition to a new pilot traffic pattern recently approved by the Boro to help reduce gridlock and improve the designated drop off and pick up areas at Villano School. All parents and residents are reminded to be aware of these changes and to demonstrate added caution and patience as we all adjust to these new procedures. Additional notices will be published by the school and with the cooperation and support of Chief Rossi and the Emerson Police Department, increased police presence will also be provided. We thank you in advance for your cooperation and support as we work together to protect our precious children. As always we invite you to contact us at 201-268-2828 to share any comments and suggestions.
