EHS is a great school! They make sure that you're getting the right opportunities in order for you to graduate. Most of the teachers are kind, loving, and will help you get good grades. But, that doesn't mean that it doesn't have flaws. The students can take control over alot of things and could abuse that power for their own benefit. Overall, my experience has been stressful and good at the same time.

Quality school! Overall great staff and atmosphere! I love going to Emporia High because of the teachers that constantly work for students to achieve success. I have been in the district all of my life, and my entire experience has been wonderful.
Emporia High School has a pretty well maintained reputation! There is a wide variety of activities and clubs that can fit everyone. In my experience it has been the "average" highschool experience, games, dances, and of course education.
