I go to Emmett High School and I am a member of the class of 2016. I have to say that I am not impressed. A lot of the teachers do pick favorites and I have noticed that being different here makes you a target. I think that just because i dont wear the most expensive stuff or am not a member of the popular crowd i should get the same treatment as the kids who do. Especially in the physical education department, especially the girls teacher, she is cold hearted unless you are beyond athletic. If you cant run fast or catch well youre screwed and thats not right. Just because some girls arent the most athletic doesnt mean the teacher should drive them so hard. It also is very wrong that they give special treatment and funds to sports but when it comes to band they just dont care. It would be nice to be more appreciated. Also we have a serious lack of musical instruments. Instead of getting brand new softball junk thikn about how kids are interested in music just as much as some people are in sports. Its not right we arent given the same oppurtunities. So my conclusion is, if you are well dressed and athletic you will do fine here. Most of the teachers are pretty great though..........

Emmet High School failed to provide a safe learning environment for my daughter. The Principle is a horrible example of leadership and picks favorites among the Students. The Principal should be a fair impartial leader. The teachers care and want the best for the kids. I feel that the moral and unity of the kids is a direct reflection on the Principal. He does not take the Moral, Safety, or Health of his students or staff seriously. In my dealings with him it has been all about self not selflessness.

We are lucky to have great teachers who have time for our students. It's too bad they don't get paid what they deserve.

A fine example of a public school getting by, even as the community fails to provide adequate support.

As a former student I would like to express that Emmett High was a great place to go to school. It set me up for college in many different areas (socially, academically, etc.) and the community who strives to make Emmett High School students succeed are much appreciated. -Scout Murphy (class of 02)

I would love to see more unity with the kids they do not support each other but tear each other up within their classes against one another I beleive we need more leadership within the kids. Teachers are great with the exception of a couple that love control because they can, and lack passion because they wont. If the adults would show respect to the kids, then the kids would follow the example laid before them. Teach because you love it. Have compassion bcause you want it, open your hearts not just when its always good , but even when it hurts. You will never regret it. Assistant cheerleading coach for Emmett High School.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Idaho used the Idaho Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, math and language usage, and in grades 5, 7 and 10 in science. Students may also take the ISAT in grades 11 or 12 if they were not able to do so in grade 10. The scores from the spring administration are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The grade 10 ISAT is a high school graduation requirement. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering the specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Idaho. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
