This school has some of the highest standards I have ever seen in a public school. From the academic rigor, to the discipline code, to the extra curricular opportunities, EHS offers students every opportunity to succeed, and the community is very supportive as well. I would not hesitate to send my child to Emmaus, and anyone who says otherwise needs to take a long, hard look at their expectations and the other public schools in the area.

The outstanding education my daughter received at Emmaus High School led to a full tuition 4 year scholarship at a prestigious private college. She entered college with 27 credits she accumulated through AP courses. With a solid academic preparation she obtained at EHS she was able to graduate with highest honors from college and obtained 2 scholarships for graduate study. She is presently in an honorable career with an outstanding firm. The parents of many of her classmates could write virtually the same message.

Where to begin? The administration is poor to say the least; the only high point is that they manage to keep most of the kids out of prison, and even that is questionable. They hand out Saturday detentions to the point that it looks like a regular school day when the kids are entering the building, and most are for minor infractions. There is a rampant drug problem among the children in the school and in no way is this being addressed. The students are questionable at best and are lacking in most moral areas and have little to no interpersonal skills unless you count threats and fighting among characteristics that are positive. I pulled ALL of my children out and actually opted to educate them elsewhere. I would rather pay Central Catholic ungodly sums of money (and we are not Catholic) than send my children to EHS. This saddens me as I am a graduate of EHS myself and have family who had taught for East Penn for years. They agree, times have changed, the families have changed and so have the teachers. Attitude reflects leadership, all of which are lacking in the EHS of today.
