As any other high school it is a place of teens trying to learn and discover who their are going to grow up to be. It is a place to have great connections to everyone. There are many classes that get you ready for the real, military, and college life. Some of them are college readiness classes. they also have connections to the tech college and the university in emporia, somethings that the student can do I take duel college credit. In my history with emporia high is that it saves me money if I would take duel credit classes but saving time and money. This high school isn't just about the classes but also the clubs and activities after school. Their are many clubs to get you involved in school activities, but also meeting new people and help you in any things you need. If its emotionally or mentally teachers care more than you see in movies. That brings and builds the connection with students and teacher. These are some reason why I liked being at emporia high school.

Emporia is a good high school that offers students around the area advanced programs not offered at many smaller schools. The majority of the staff is very welcoming and is dedicated to teaching their students all of the materials necessary to meet college readiness. The clubs and activities that are available at the school far outweigh any offered at other local schools and the programs encourage students to be involved in as many ways as possible. The only downside to the abundance of activities is the clear persuasion the admin. have towards specific activities. The majority of the extracurricular budget is spent on sports and the athletic programs; causing the fine arts and other activities to fund-raise for the needs of the organizations. With many recent events in the U.S., the students have taken advantage of what the school has to offer. The admin. is extremely understanding and meets the majority of the students needs and strive to make EHS the safest and best it can be.
When considering the academic side, EHS is a great place. There are all sorts of electives and clubs for people to try, and the teachers really care about their subject areas. On the other hand, the infrastructure of the school is somewhat lacking. There are no windows in the classrooms, the temperature inside is inconsistent from one area of the building to the next. Another shortcoming is the counselors. There are only four counselors for a school of over 1,300 kids, and although they try, the students are generally in the dark about how to begin their post-secondary education.
