While attending Emporia High School they have improved their facilities with construction over the course of four years. However you will have to personally keep track of if you are in the correct classes, if you have all your credits, or if you need to be put into credit recovery because the counselors don’t really pay that much attention to it. Overall it is an amazing school with tons of amazing teachers and a wide variety of classes and CTE pathway options.
Overall it is a good school you can learn many things and get lots of opportunities and can have fun
Emporia High School is a diverse community with some good teachers. However, school spirit and student involvement is lacking. While there are some really good teachers there are also many sub-par teachers.
I have only been at the Emporia school district for two months now, but so far I have enjoyed it. Compared to my last school there is a large diversity in available classes and, overall, more kind and welcoming students.
Starting the year off feeling not prepared directly by this school for college. No faculty discussed scholarship opportunities for seniors.
I absolutely love EHS. The only hard fact is that it’s a smaller school so everyone knows everyone and it creates a lot of cliques. I think it’s easy to fit in though and there are so many ways to get involved. I’ve tried so many class variations and the arts have always been my favorite! I’ve been able to try many sports as well which makes me feel even more prepared for the world in the sense that it made me realize that nothing has to be permanent in life. That’s why I’m so excited to go to college and try new things and go to new places because I know that I don’t have to stick to one singular thing. A lot of people say that EHS doesn’t prepare you for the future but I think that if you want you’re future to be bright, opportunities will always present itself to you!
It was fun just that covid made me not have a normal school year. Then I ended up pregnant my junior year and hid it throughout the school year.
As an alumni of Emporia High School, I'm thrilled to share a positive review of our exceptional school, which stands out for its unwavering commitment to safety and diversity. Our school takes great pride in fostering a secure environment where students can thrive. From robust safety protocols to vigilant staff members, every effort is made to ensure the well-being of our students. Additionally, the school actively promotes diversity, embracing students from various backgrounds, cultures, and perspectives. This inclusive atmosphere cultivates an enriching educational experience, where students learn from one another and develop a global mindset. Teachers celebrate diversity through curriculum content, promoting understanding and respect. Our school truly embodies the principles of unity, equality, and acceptance. I am grateful to be part of a school that prioritizes the safety and diversity of its students, preparing them to become compassionate and responsible global citizens.
The best part was making friends and the worst was the math departments. The teacher lack of care and the students lack of understanding.
No one cares about anything happening and everything is disorganized. Some of the clubs and all of the sports are organized but not everything. My experience with people has been terrible as well as clubs
For the most part, I had a reasonably good experience at Emporia High School. There were multiple instances where there was more than one person in trouble for the same thing; one of them got off, and the other got the worst punishment they could get. Something I wish would change was how people get singled out if they don't have the right last name or do not know the right people.
Emporia has supportive teachers. Most teachers will go out of their way to make sure you know what is happening and build relationships with their students in class. Emporia's teachers care about the learning a student receives and realize that they need a good environment to learn and create that environment for each student.
I loved how many different clubs are offered throughout the year, along with the student body and teachers as well.
I spent multiple years at EHS, and I believe that they are a good, if not great school. The way that their junior and senior classes are taught prepares you well for the culture of learning in college. They have very kind administrators and office staff who are almost always available to help. Their theater and choir programs are off the charts in giving real experience that will help people who want to become involved in theater or singing in the future. The EHS theater department is especially good in providing stagecraft and soundwork experience. The school also provides a good variety of math programs. The school made a great choice in switching from trimesters to semesters, as its honors courses were suffering greatly under the time crunch of a trimester. The experience of higher learning classes has greatly improved. There are a lot of clubs available in EHS, so there is something for anyone in that regard. And the schools facilities are top notch.
Overall a lot of it was what you would expect from a high school. There were great teachers that taught me a lot about not only their subject but life. On the other hand, there was a fair share of teachers I could have gone without. There was a wide variety of students from different races, genders, and sexualities. They also had a lot of clubs and activities as well as dual credit opportunities with local colleges. Opportunities to participate in a variety of sports from football to golf. We are one of the only schools in the country to offer a glassblowing class. However, there were a lot of issues with kids smoking, doing drugs, and drinking. We had to go into lockdowns more than we should have had for shooting threats. And there were some pretty messed up things that happened that were swept under the rug by the administration. Overall it wasn't all terrible I made good friends and memories, though there is plenty of things about how the school is run that could be worked out.
The teachers are great and student body is a large and good group of students! The administration not as great. I would like to see more fairness within the school.
The diversity is huge in emporia high school. the only bad thing it the way the staff handles certain situations, they dont take serious matters as serious as they should be.
