Emmett School District
The Emmett School District has seen outstanding growth in student performance over the past few years. In the fall of 2013, our 10th and 11th grade students completed the PSAT assessment. Emmett students exceeded the national and state averages in every area. One measure that the PSAT provides is a percentage of students that are on track to be College and Career Ready. On this benchmark, our 10th grade students out-performed the nation by 7.7% and our 11th grade students were 84% on track to be college and career ready. The national average is 46%. This success is due to a dedicated teaching and administrative staff that are always working to ensure the best for each student.
Our education starts with strong academic programs in our two elementary schools located in Emmett - Kenneth Carberry and Shadow Butte Elementary and at our two remote schools, Ola and Sweet-Montour, in rural communities northeast of Emmett. Our secondary programs include a Middle School, High School, and an alternative High School. We also offer professional technical programs through the Payette River Regional Technical Academy.
- Career Pathways – Emmett High School is organized around seven broad templates of course selection suggestions designed to prepare them in an area of interest. Students are not locked into a pathway or course list but can adjust, explore, and customize their pathway to fit their specific career plans.
- Dual Credit Courses – Emmett High School offers a wide variety of dual credit courses each year. Students are able to earn college credits while taking advanced high school academic and professional technical courses. We have students graduating from Emmett High School with 30+ college credits. Course offerings include: Psychology, Advanced U.S. History, Algebra, Trigonometry, Statistics, Calculus, Physics, Environmental Sciences, English 11 and 12, AP Literature, and Speech.
Emmett School District is dedicated to transforming each classroom into a high-tech classroom. Classrooms are being modified to include interactive whiteboards, 3D cameras, clickers, and laptops/devices. Currently, we offer one-to-one initiatives in 4 elementary classrooms and throughout our alternative school. We continue to add educational programs that utilize technology to improve teaching and learning.
