10/29/2012parentIt is good school, but like other people mentioned, this school doesn't have very friendly atmosphere. Staff members are not very welcoming and because it is the biggest school in the area, it doesn't feel very cozy. People seem too busy to get to know each other.
8/12/2012parentEmpire Oaks is an EXCELLENT school. We came from a private school with a high level of academic expectation. Empire Oaks far exceeded what we expected from a public school. Parent involvement is a HUGE priority and encouraged. The teachers are all VERY good and the Principal is a strong leader. It's a school who deserves the Blue Ribbon for certain!
9/21/2011parentI have a daughter in 3rd grade and a son in Kindergarten. Our experience with Empire Oaks has been nothing less than stellar! My children love going to school and adore their teachers. I don't ever hesitate to recommend Empire Oaks to new members of the community!
9/20/2011parentMy daughters absolutely love this school. One's in 5th grade and one's in Kindergarten. They can't wait for summer to be over every year they've attended. The number of parent volunteers are extremely high, which is what makes a school absolutely outstanding. Our absolute favorite teacher has been Mrs. Donovan, my older daughter's 3rd grade teacher because she has a very strong educational background to bring confidence into each and every child no matter how shy they are. Most teachers are not educated in this area, so we felt so blessed to have had her.
7/27/2011parentAlthough I find that this school can produce high test scores, I find the staff to be very cold. I felt there was more attention to the "looks" of the classroom than to making the education experience well rounded. Absolutely no creativity, purely institutional. I know if I was a child, I would not want to be at this school, so my child will be attending a different school where people are kind and happy.
7/8/2011parentI have been at Empire for 6 years and have 3 kids that attend. The teaching is top notch, the principal is supportive and the parent involvement is super active. There are a lot of PTA sponsored events which are well attended.
6/26/2010parentMy daughter goes to Empire Oaks and we are really happy with the school administration, teachers and excellent students in this school.
5/22/2009parentI have 3 kids who went through this school, the best school in Sacramento County. Most schools in Folsom are great. The teachers at this school really pursue excellence in your child.
2/12/2009parentmy general experiece @ this school with staff members and teachers were simply the worst. first off, office aids (pardon my choice of words) need to find a new job in new york city where they can stay so hot or in l.a where they can get paid by being unprofessional (poor mannerism -tone of their voice seem 'rude' rather than just being confident - i was purplexed when they were calling me to let me know that my number was not in file (due to their mistake!! ). second, i have'0' idea where my child belongs in the school . it's as if ones not capable of getting involve often -that's just too bad -your child's not visible. - ridiculous amount of parent involvement - uh.. i remember sending my kid to school- not an adult's daily party. teachers focus was not with my child resulting major 'grade-decline'
1/17/2009parentEmpire Oaks is an awesome school. The teachers are excellent and the level of academics is the best in the county.
12/16/2008parentMy oldest son went to this school from K-5 and was very prepared for middle school. The Teachers challenge students to do their best. The former Principal was outstanding in guiding the staff towards excellence. The new principal while not as visible, seems to be doing well. They are open to parent participation, encourage community involvement. This has helped this school to attain BLUE RIBBON STATUS ! The front office staff are sometimes pre-occupied with busy work and not always as helpful as they could be. That seems to be the pattern at most elementry schools-not sure why ? Folsom schools on a whole are all outstanding. Clearly this school stands out as one of the best!
11/25/2008parentWhile this school rates high in academics, it lacks the moral and community structure of a collectivistic society. A cold egocentic environment greets you and cliques are formed among children and parents. The initiation into the groups mirrors that of fraternity hazing. I would not recommend this school unless you fit the homogenized population profile and possess the strong-will to sustain you though the iniation process. After four years in this environment, I am glad my child will be leaving for middle school!!!
5/19/2008parentEmpire oaks is a great school. They have many educational field trips. Also the teachers are great.
9/13/2007parentEmpire Oaks is a wonderful school. We have been impressed by the many opportunities offered to the children in terms of field trips and activities. The teachers are incredibly dedicated to their jobs and it really shows. The PTA is very involved and raises funds for many 'extras' that make the school experience even better. It seemed very fitting that it won 'distinguished school' status in CA!
3/22/2006parentEmpire Oaks Elementary School truly cares for each child and their success. From the principle to the teachers to the entire staff, you can tell their priority is to have the best environment, tools, and teaching skills for the kids to achieve their best. They include and excel in every aspect of a well-rounded education including math, science, reading, writing, technology, an incredible arts program, physical education, and more. Parent involvement is exceptional and encouraged. I couldn't imagine a better school (private or public) for my kids to attend. We feel very blessed.
11/3/2005parentThis is one of the best public schools available in this county. The teachers are able to bring out the best in the children. Academic programs, music, sports and other extracurricular activities keep the kids learning in a fun way and parents meet with staff on a regular basis to share ideas on how to raise the kids
7/24/2005parentNice campus, high level of parent involvement.
1/10/2005parentExcellent academic program, lot of extracurricular activities,good parent's involvement.
