Welcome to Ephrata Schools

At the Ephrata School District, we are deeply committed to every child's journey. We’re driven to make sure that every student graduates ready for career and life.

We Exist for Kids & Learning.

Kids Come First. We believe a kid's dignity must come before every decision we make. Our core work supports their learning.

Plows are on our vehicles and Ephrata School District maintenance crews are getting ready for winter weather. It takes an army of employees to battle the snow and ice to make schools safe on winter days. Maintenance crews get to work at 4:30 a.m. to start clearing sidewalks, parking lots, bus loops and other high traffic areas. They're helped by our day custodians to clear paths for students and staff. We appreciate all their efforts to make school run safely.
