See Emporia Middle School's test results to learn more about school performance.
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.
