Since I graduated from the high school in June 2015, I have to say I had the best four years of my life. My favorite experiences have to be both in and out of the classroom. In the classroom, my favorite experiences were from my art and English classes. I always laughed, had fun, did my work, but also got to develop friendships with classmates. I ended up developing a really strong trust with my English teacher, Mrs. Doklan, who I had both junior and senior year. My favorite experiences in English class was being able to show my creativity, being able to read out loud and not stutter, and being able to talk to her about anything I was dealing with at the time. My favorite experiences outside the classroom was with Key Club and Habitat for Humanity. I was helping out with car washes, the spaghetti dinner, cops n' kids, and anything locally within the surrounding community. I have always enjoyed community service! If I had to do it all over again, I would go back, because I loved all my teachers and I would want to just thank them for everything they taught me. I would also go back and really thank Mrs. Doklan for the kindness and sincerity she showed me both years.
Review Emmaus High School
You can find any kind of people easily. There are many LGBT+ students, many students of different ethnicities, and students of different socioeconomic status. The diversity is great! I know the ESL teacher well, and she teaches a lot of students from really cool places!
Emmaus High School has been filled with incredible opportunities for my fellow students and I to get involved with and embrace the school's accepting community. School activities such as stage crew, orchestra, chorus, and the plethora of sports events create a welcoming environment for all students. An incredible and hardworking faculty help students to grow and mature in their academic careers.
