Emporia Middle School has so much to offer. Their dedication to offering the best experience for every student has been welcomed! My child feels challenged and especially enjoys the extracurriculars! Their ultimate goal is the success of every child while giving them the tools for success in their adult lives.
Very difficult administrator - very low teacher moral. Gifted Education is poor (terrible). Efforts of teachers are strong, but support for educational excellence is not a part of the administrative process. With the change in senior administrative management at the Board Office - there is hope for leadership change in the school. Sadly, these concerns are very well understood by the Board of Education.
This school does a great job of supporting their students and parents by offering many programs for growth in education and life skills. If a parent has a question the answer is just a phone call or e-mail away. Response time to questions is fast.
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.
