As an experienced Edgemont student, I know what I'm talking about. Edgemont is a very safe, educational public school. Most of the people are nice, except for a select few, but overall very accepting and kind. The teachers are very nice and smart. They obviously have to now what there talking about to join this schools terrific staff. The campus is beautiful, with buildings connected by breeze ways, its very nice to get a clean breathe of air before proceeding to your next class. The safety is great, with every child getting a metal cart that always them into every building, and without this key there is no other way of getting in. The food is tremendous, with very healthy and yummy options. They even have a snack bar filled with great treats! Over all I feel that Edgemont is amazing, but the friends and things you learn there are better.

Honestly, I have mixed opinions about Edgemont. The academics are great, the classes challenged me and the teachers for the most part care about helping students learn. The extracurriculars are great too, especially the performing arts programs. However there's so much pressure to take advanced classes & get into colleges that not every person is equipped for, to the point where it's unnecessary and pretty toxic.
Also it's hard to fit in if you're not a certain type of way and I'm sure anybody who goes there/went there knows exactly what I'm talking about. It's a small school, most people tend to be cliquey. If kids want to spread rumors about you or ruin your reputation, they will. Personally I had such a hard time being myself and barely ever felt comfortable speaking my mind because of some bad experiences I had.
I absolutely loved my time at Edgemont High School. Not only did I have the most incredible teachers who always supported me and my classmates in and outside the classroom, I also made wonderful friends whose friendships I know will last a lifetime. I was given all the resources I could need to be active in my extracurricular activities as well, from getting the opportunity to play on my varsity tennis team as a seventh grade student to starting and leading multiple school clubs to running district-wide campaigns with the help of a supportive and approachable administration. Edgemont has certainly helped me prepare to achieve my greatest ambitions as I enter the real world and pursue higher studies. Most of all, it has given me many memories that I will cherish as I move forward.
