Emmaus High School Reviews

I was thoroughly involved in Key Club and Habitat for Humanity from my freshman year to senior year. I was committed and went to every meeting. I participated in the annual Art Show, displaying art I had worked on in classes, in May from Freshman year to senior year. What I like about Emmaus High School is that even though it is a big school, I made some amazing teachers and friendships along the way. I am able to keep in contact with a few of my teachers, who expressed how proud they were of me in high school. Graduation at Stabler Arena was a memorable day and I will always take those high school memories with me. If you go to Emmaus, it is one of the top high schools in PA and in the nation. That says a lot! Do cherish those friendships and show your appreciation to the teachers! You won't regret it.

I graduated in 2017. My overall experience at Emmaus High School was good! The teachers were always so eager to help me if i was struggling with anything and always made an effort to connect with me. Also, Emmaus really helped me prepare for college. They really teach you the essential things that are required to be successful in college.
Emmaus High School was a great school for my son to attend. Brock was involved with many activities, although no sports activities. Emmaus High School and the school board highly supported the music and theater programs within the school. Brock was a member of the marching band, symphonic band, orchestra, Tri-M honor society, Chorale, Fermatta Nowhere (the boys acapella group), and boys chorus. Brock loved playing the clarinet as well as the cello. He really had wonderful experiences within these programs that positively influenced him in pursuing a career in music technology. Brock was fortunate enough to travel with the Chorale to Italy, France, Germany, and Switzerland. He sang in many places in Europe, including many cathedrals, and the Vatican on Easter Monday. What other high school gives kids these experiences? Certainly not any high schools in our immediate area. Brock was very fortunate to go to such a wonderful high school, where he had experiences of a lifetime.
