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.
The staff really cared about your education and they want you to succeed! If you ever had any issues with anything they try their best to change or explain why/how it's happening. Overall, I had a great four years here and they really prepared me for college.
