Edgewood is an amazing school that has really prepared me for college. All of the teachers want the best for you and push you to do your best in all of your classes. The teachers will also work with you to make sure you are prepared for every test and fully understand the material. The sports teams are not the best, but some of my closest friends have come from the sports I have played! It is very easy to become involved with clubs and sports, because everyone is so welcoming. I am so thankful for the experience that I have had at Edgewood Jr Sr High School.

My school is pretty much as advertised. It is an academicly focused school that offers only honors and AP classes. We do have a lot of extracurricular activities as well as sports which are all fun and mostly well off. There are only a couple of problems that I encountered while at Edgewood. A few of them would be: one of the academic advisors, a few problematic students, and difficult teachers occasionally. From what I’ve seen though, Edgewood is a lot better than most other high schools are. I would still choose Edgewood over any other high school.
Since this is a School of Choice, it's obviously a fantastic school full of bright young minds. Students can be enrolled in as 7th to 12th graders. The teachers are also fantastic and they really help students succeed in classes and give them opportunities to further understand lessons in the classroom. Teachers and staff are also very involved with school events and activities which allow students to develop strong bonds with certain teachers. Everyone is very nice at Edgewood and the curriculum is more advanced which really challenges students in a good way. There's a reason Edgewood is ranked #50 in the Nation.
