Eminence Independent Schools
Henry County, Kentucky
Type High School

Superintendent Buddy Berry
Enrollment 500

Eminence Independent Schools is one of two school districts in Henry County, Kentucky and is divided into three schools, Eminence Elementary, Eminence Middle, and Eminence High. All three schools are located on the same campus and share some of the same facilities, like a gym, cafeteria, computer lab, and library. All of these facilities provide an environment that is suitable for optimal learning. The population of the school allows for smaller class sizes and student(s) to teacher(s) ratio.

The school was established in 1902 at its current premises, but burned down in 1942. It was then rebuilt in the same location.


Grading Scale

The grading scale set some of the highest standards for students across the nation. To pass, a student must maintain at least a B average in every class, a new system that has been phased in over the years.


The site-based council for Eminence Middle and High Schools passed a measure that requires all students participate in at least one extracurricular activity per year to be promoted to the next grade.
