I liked being apart of east penn school district because I always felt safe. The teachers and faculty are very understanding and kind. I never felt alone, I always had friends by my side. I was making new friends each day. The course work helped prepare me for college too. I felt prepared and ready to go to college after graduating from Emmaus high school. The buildings located in east penn are always clean and well taken care of. I feel like I was lucky to be apart of east penn school district. I'd say I had a good 12 years attending school in the east penn.

I believe the East Penn School Districts is one of the best districts in the Lehigh Valley. The education we receive is phenomenal. The teaching staff is very good and cares about their students. The students in the East Penn School District are very smart and take their education very seriously. One thing I would like to see a change in is bigger schools. We have a lot of kids in our schools and a bigger sized school would be nice. Overall, the East Penn
School District is one of the best.
I have been in the east Penn school district since kindergarden, and I have had a good experience with the schools and teachers. The teachers dont only care about grades and school life, but they care about what is going on outside of school and they understand. Currently I am in high school about to graduate, and I have had a wonderful experience.
