Edina Public School District Reviews

Edina has been hated on for a few years now by parents, community members and even students. They attack Edina because of its diminishing status as the “Best School District” in Minnesota. They blame this on the leftist teachers and the liberal agenda that they teach. But I’m here to say that, this rhetoric, is invalid. The real problem with Edina is the conservatives who are making the diversification of Edina a bad thing. As Edina becomes less of an all white school, our test scores will diminish overall, as minorities tend to score lower on standardized tests. We need to embrace to diversity of Edina and help minorities score higher on tests. Rather than blame everything on the teachers.

I. I really enjoyed my learning experience at Edina. My teachers all cared about me and where I was in their class. They each challenged me to do better, and challenged me to see the other side of the story.
Something that I disliked about Edina is the emense pressure to be perfect at EVERYTHING. If you weren't good at sports, you automatically weren't cool. If you didn't get a specific score on your ACT, you were automatically dumb, and people didn't consider other circumstances that might've caused the lower score like a reading disability. I wish that there was less pressure to be perfect and that trying your best was good enough at Edina.
I am currently a student at Edina high school and am scheduled to graduate in 2021. My experience academically has been very positive, but when it comes to the culture at our school I would like to see changes. First off, Edina is very competitive both in sports and in academics, while it is healthy to have some amount of competitive spirit I feel like Edina takes it too far. We have a huge majority of students that take AP classes, and I too take them. However I have felt indirect pressure from the academic culture at my school to sign up for AP classes when taking normal ones would have been fine to take as well. Secondly, Edina isn't the most diverse place. The majority of our students and staff are white, and I think it would be particularly beneficial to our school culture if we had a more diverse school.
