Teachers at Ephrata High School are great! When you need help on an assignment they take the time to help you understand the material. They also really care about the students, even going out of their way to talk to students. Not only are the teachers great but the counselors and the office staff is too! The counselors are very supportive about your decisions and offer advice on how to proceed. The office staff is very helpful in getting us what we need.

This is a small school district where students are given the attention they need to succeed and move on to the next level. There are a lot of opportunities to get involved in extracurricular activities including sports, music and drama. The community is very supportive as well.
Ephrata High School was a pretty positive place to be at. Faculty members are kind, and most students are good to be around. The staff is doing a good job at attempting to “modernize” our school. However, the food isn’t good at all, so going off campus for lunch is almost necessary.
