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.
Emporia High School had a great environment with great teachers. Something I would change is having windows in more classrooms to provide sunlight.
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.
Overall it's a good school but as with most, there are cliques and immature students. The teachers were ok but I had some that I really respected and I could tell loved what they did. Others not so much.
Though I would say the journey of finishing High School was difficult. The high school that I was going to was a place i didn't enjoy often. But I cannot lie about the people I met throughout my years and enjoyed their company and their teachings of how to be ready for the real world. For that reason, I'm glad to have the good friends and few teachers that truly cared
I liked the opportunity for dual-credit courses while attending EHS. I feel like it helped get me on the right track early on. However, I do wish we could used Semesters instead of Trimesters because Trimesters really cut down the amount of time we had to go through the coursework (12 weeks in a Trimester). Overall, I enjoyed my experience at EHS.
Emporia High School is low budget so it’s not like I can expect a tall glass building with cushioned chairs for desks and high quality meals with sport uniforms that actually fit. Though I feel the main authority of the school really lacks in giving their students what they need. They are extremely irresponsible when it comes to being safe in the peak of a pandemic and are horribly hypocritical when it comes to restrictions. Most are very rude and are not flexible to students needs. And don’t even get me started on the lack of inclusion and equality-the constant occurrence of hate acts whether it is racism, homophobia, or flat out rape, the school’s authorities seem to “have their hands tied”. I have so many issues regarding the school, but I do enjoy some of my teachers and the classes the school has provided that other schools do not give.
Throughout my four years at Emporia High School, I really bonded well with the amazing principals here as they helped me out any time I needed it. Emporia High School also has so much to offer when it comes to clubs and sports. The teachers here are also helpful and great as I bonded with so many of them here. They helped out a lot and I'm glad to have been able to connect and bond with most of them here. I wish I could spend more time here as a student to connect with my teachers and principals and with the clubs they have. I think Emporia High school is great and a fun experience for anyone that comes here.
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.
Emporia High School is an average school. Nothing about it makes it stick out or makes it extraordinary. The teachers at the school are okay I think some of them could do a better job at making sure we get work done in class.
The teachers have a way with bonding with the kids, and by the end of your time there, you feel like your family grew by hundreds. Mr. Fischer did a great job making sure all students felt included this year and welcome at Emporia High school.
Emporia High school is a good school. The teachers are always happy to help whenever students need it. However, I wish to see some teachers less strict on students who may need more help.
