Empire High School 5

EHS has high standards for its academic programs, athletic programs, and communication with parents. Faculty and staff promote integrity and sportsmanship in all student activities. Communication with parents is unparalleled, promoting achievement and future success, and I wouldn't send my children any where else.

This high school has terrible team sportsmanship and their athletic director is part of the reason why. They need to maybe spend a little time teaching the students and their athletes how to be respectful during games, while also teaching the athletic director not to laugh when his students are acting very rude and disrespectful during an athletic event at your school. Morals are just as important as academics in my eyes!

Just to think that I had serious reservations about sending my kid to this school without TextBooks! His GPA is now number 3 out of 193. He was never that high achieving before. Mr. Baker, the superintendent, and the entire Vail Team is to be highly commended for their work. I remain one happy and proud parent. Thank you one and all.

All I have to say about EHS, is it is fantastic. I am a sophomore and I have learned so much at this school. I have great bonds with all of my teachers. The academics is challenged but it really helps. All of the teachers and staff are really great and we as students are very fortunate to have as many great teachers as we do. Also our principal is awesome, he interacts and listens to what the students and teachers have to say. GO RAVENS!

I love this school, i Am a freshmen at empire high school, I thought it was going to be packed full of students but it's not, And they have so many options to choose from and the mac's are really good to. Half of my friends choose Cienega, Even though i wanted to be with my friends i choice this school because they have great standers and the teachers are really good at teaching and they have tutoring options after school before school and during lunch and they have Zero hour which you can go to finish work or go to your teachers and get helped out! I LOVE EMPIRE AND EVERYTHING ABOUT IT!!!

I am a freshmen at Empire and I absolutely love EVERYTHING about this school! Many of my friends chose Cienega, but I still chose Empire because I do think this school is better. I like having all my classes everyday instead of a block schedule, and no advisory instead of an hour long waste of tiime advisory. I love using a laptop for my work, it is so much easier than textbooks because instead of one resource (the textbook), you can find info on many websites, plus you can do all of your homework on the laptop and turn everything in on the Internet. I also love how the class sizes are smaller, and we have more one-on-one time with teachers, and all my teachers knew my name within the first few days. We also have a lot of fun in our classes rather than just being taught something and then given an assignment. Overall this school is GREAT and I am really sad that I am moving soon, because I would like to graduate from such an awesome school. :)

Empire Hight School is a very impressive young High School. The physical and psychological stature of this institution is conducive to learning personal responsibility and cultivating intelligent The technological forum of laptop learning encourages students to explore a dynamic media that will open future worlds and insure academic excellence. We, as parents of two students here, are very pleased with the academic and physical education curriculum that is offered to our sons. The teacher/student ratio is also impressive and coveted by other districts.

Great school in a great school distict! Vail provides choices for all students to excell. Parents have the choice of which school they want their kid to attend.

If a parent has an issue with a teacher and thinks the teacher is just giving tests and 'watching' the kids fail, I would have to disagree. If the student is a freshmen most homework is graded on effort not ability since most of the freshmen teachers provide so much help on the homework the next day. Instead of writing a review about a teacher the parent should talk to the teacher and find out how the grading works.

I am a student here, and I have to say, its been a great experience so far. I'm currently in my junior year and I've been having a blast. This school is not too big, not too small, and like Stacy said empire is a close family. When one of our students died in a shooting (off-campus) the whole school was devastated, and we poured our hearts out to the family and friends of this girl. Laptops are a great and very efficient way to teach. The tech department is very experienced, and can handle our computer problems whenever they happen. We have great sport programs here (Football team is 6-0, undefeated) and we even have a paintball team. This is definitely an A+ school.
