Edgemont Union Free School District Reviews

Edgemont was a great school, both academically and socially. I not only received an outstanding education that prepared me well for college and life, but my closest friends are also from Edgemont.

It is definitely an intense place as far as academics are concerned, but it's no more intense than a competitive college or a typical workplace. The intensity and the stress it causes can be tough for a kid, but it is definitely manageable and it builds character.

In my experience, classmates were supportive (we studied together) and it was not at all cutthroat.

Lastly, while Edgemont is a great school for serious students, there is also plenty of help and support for those who need it, so I do not see how almost anyone could go wrong with the Edgemont Schools!

During my time at edgemont, I was bullied everyday. This area is a terrible place to live because everyone is rich and if you aren't as rich as them, they hate you. If you try to report any bullying to the administration they do nothing and pretend bullying doesn't happen. Common things people are bullied for are mental illness, being gay, not being disrespectful to the teachers, liking movies, and not drinking. The only good thing about edgemont are some of the very dedicated teachers who really care about what they're teaching. However, say you like these teachers and everyone calls you a suck up. The kids here are extremely spoiled and the parents are no better. Some of the parents even bully kids they've never met. There's so much drama it's hard for anyone to focus on academics. If you care about your kids' mental health, dont live in Westchester county.
Overall, Edgemont offered many opportunities for students to succeed. My only concern is that students are sometimes too competitive. There seems to be a culture where students overload themselves with AP and honors classes, even if this means that they will get less sleep at night. Still, students here are definitely challenged and they find themselves ready for college.
