 Beyond helping develop their minds, we are helping instill a profound sense of self in our kids – a “self” that’s been pushed, pulled, nurtured & challenged so that our graduates leave Stella Link with a confidence they’ll carry for a lifetime.

The Emery Difference - Defined

The Emery Difference is one of the most frequently repeated phrases that describes our school community. More than just a marketing tagline, it is a statement of who we are, what we believe and why we are unique among Houston-area schools. So what is The Emery Difference?
  • It's a culture characterized by joy, humor, high energy, informality and occasional irreverence  all of which help effectuate a seriousness of ethical and academic purpose.
  • It's a profound sense of inclusion, connectedness and community, among and between students and faculty  regardless of individual differences.
  • It's an approach to religious and spiritual instruction that exemplifies vigorous pluralism and embraces machloket (literally, respectful disagreement).
  • It's a student-centered environment that promotes personal development, yet also inculcates awareness of and commitment to others, including the outside world.

    "After an exhaustive process of open houses, visits, meetings, applications, and tests where we started by looking at over 40 high schools, we finally selected the Emery/Weiner School...
