Emmett Ensures Educational Excellence

Preparing students for individual success.

Public School Foundation
Education ~ Opportunity

The Emmett Public School Foundation was organized in 1994 as a nonprofit corporation. The Emmett Public School Foundation's purpose is to create a support for the education of Gem County students. Private support is essential to assure the highest standard of quality in its program and in each student's educational experience. Your gifts and cash donations will make a difference in enrichment opportunities for both students and faculty.
