Emporia Middle School is full of excellent teachers! It is unique to find the quality of teacher and the willingness to work together under one roof. I have also truly appreciated that opportunities this school offers. Smaller class sizes also help teachers keep control of the classroom and allows them to address individual needs. Great school!
I could not love Emporia schools more! This district is cutting edge and is a leader in the state. The teachers are provided with excellent professional development and therefore, are some of the best teachers in the state. I have been in other districts with "higher" test scores but those scores don't always tell the entire story. Being in classrooms and seeing the quality and effective instruction of teachers as well as the high engagement of students is what matters to me as both a parent and educator. I know my children are receiving a top-notch education in Emporia Schools!
The teachers here are very dedicated and helpful. The students are friendly and there are a great variety of classes and activities for students to be involved in. This district truly strives to do what is best for the students.
The teachers here are incredibly dedicated and take their time to get to know students. Unfortunately, the administration is extremely rigid and self-serving, which takes its toll on the teachers and students. There are too many different rules and programs for anyone to follow all of them, and the district doesn't seem to care to make positive changes. If you're planning on moving to this area, be very careful about choosing your school district. USD 253 can be a very harsh place for students, and you won't find a lot of support as a parent. Take the time to look at the other rural districts in the area before you settle on Emporia Public Schools.
