Edgewood High School was inclusive, supportive, academic, and overall, well-rounded. Knowledgeable and supportive teachers helped push all students to do their best and clubs gave ample opportunities to pursue one's passion and discover new interests. Teachers were easy to approach and genuinely concerned about the student's welfare. Edgewood High School's program prepares students for college and incorporates a variety of different subjects. The school is a safe environment not only for students to learn, but also for students to make friends. Administrators, teachers, and staff are always prepared for the student's safety and the principal is very enthusiastic about the school and students.

Although the school is relatively small, it has improved greatly since its re-establishment in 2010. Its IB Programme is very rigorous and although may complain that it may not ensure that the student gets college credit, it will prepare the student for college. I myself am in the IB Diploma Programme and have noticed how much IB has helped me because I have learned how to manage my time with a heavy workload. Bullying is an extremely minor issue and the teachers have an amazing relationship with their students. The teachers are very dedicated, with some that staying at school until 9:00 pm for extracurricular activities, such as Academic Decathlon. The school does need to be a bit more well-rounded because its entire focus is academics and our sports aren't reaching their fullest potential. The students are very friendly and make the school a safe environment to be yourself.
My overall experience at Edgewood is good. The academics are great and the teachers do care for their students. Involvement is good and its easy to make a name for yourself if you put yourself out there! The administration is good, but is not always the more willing to work with students, though.
