Edgemont Union Free School District Reviews
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.
While Edgemont Jr/Sr High School is a very academically challenging place, the general level of stress at school is not as one would expect. The top 20% of kids are generally academically intense, and they generally end up at schools with overall acceptance rates of <15%.
