I've had a really good experience at Emmaus High School! I've had countless opportunities for the things I'm interested in, including the school newspaper (through which I have participated in three journalism conferences, won an award in a contest, and gotten lots of good experience for my future career in journalism), the art-literary magazine, the world language programs, and multiple other clubs and activities. The school offers classes on every possible subject, so it's sometimes difficult to choose between different classes to take. The faculty and staff are wonderful, and always work to build connections with the students. I've made so many lasting connections and friendships with my teachers and peers at Emmaus, and had an amazing experience these past 4 years overall.

I am a current junior at Emmaus and so far my experience has been fairly successful. I love the clubs, activities, and all around school spirit Emmaus has (especially during football season)! However, academically, I have found a few issues with some of my past teachers and find that college readiness at our school is not a subject that is talked about often.
Through my time at Emmaus High School, I had an enjoyable experience. Emmaus High School is located in Emmaus, Pennsylvania, which is a small town in Eastern Pennsylvania. The school itself is relatively large, but it was still easy to adapt to the size once attending the school for a few weeks. The school is very organized by hallways for different subjects of classes, allowing for an easy flow between classes in the five minutes between bells. I enjoyed the ability to take classes in subjects that I enjoyed and was interested in, as the school offered a large program of studies to incorporate the many interests of the different students who occupied the school. This way, I was able to take more rigorous science courses, while my friends were able to take classes more based on their interests in art or language. This helps to encourage students' individuality, which is a major positive as high schoolers find their passions for the future.
