emporia high has a great selection of extracurricular activities, the activities are organized and well supervised
—Submitted by a parent


Posted February 18, 2007

Emporia High School is a fine school. The rating of this school should be higher due to the educational level of the teachers and the percentage who are teaching successfully in their fields. Emporia has experienced a huge surge of migrant and immigrant workers to the area thus bringing in lower income families and students who speak very little or no English at all. As a consequence teachers find themselves spending more time with students who have little or no English skills which may be a reason for some test scores not meeting state standards. Yet, a vast majority of the students do excel in this school academically and go on to attend well known colleges with scholarships! The school is clean and safe. The teachers and staff are dedicated to helping students achieve their goals and contributing to their success as adults. My three kids attended this school successfully.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Kansas used the Kansas State Assessments (KSA) to test students in grades 3 though 8, 11 and 12 in reading and math; in grades 4, 7, 11 and 12 in science; and in grades 6, 8 and 12 in history-government. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Kansas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
