Edgewood Junior/Senior High School Reviews

At Edgewood you will be challenged academically and given many opportunities to advance your studies, but I find that we lack in other areas. First of all, Cultural diversity is nearly nonexistent and educating students and staff culturally is nonexistent also. This lead to incidents where many students used inappropriate slurs and remarks without punishment. Edgewood has students that have great potential but the lack of a zero tolerance for these comments has made some feel unimportant and ignored. Socially Edgewood gives many students opportunities to find interests and friend with clubs and sports events. Although the lack of some sports (football, baseball, softball) adds to the feeling of a unrealistic high-school experience. I credit Edgewood to challenging me academically and preparing me for college. You can tell the teachers and staff want to see all of their students succeed. Im grateful that I went here I just hope changes are made so that the experience is better.

I am a graduating Senior in the class of 2020 at Edgewood Junior/Senior High School. I have been a students at Edgewood since 7th grade, and I couldn't be more grateful to have been a part of such an amazing school. I feel that Edgewood has fully prepared me to go into college with the right skill set. The faculty and staff at Edgewood go above and beyond to ensure that students are safe, academically challenged, happy, and healthy. I feel that Edgewood's faculty and staff have helped me to grow as a person. If I need academic help, teachers go out of their way to help me learn. If there is a behavioral issue, teachers and administration handle the situation with professionalism. I would say that Edgewood is mainly known for the students' academic achievements, but the school also has phenomenal sports, music, art, and theatre programs. There is truly something for everyone.
I liked the small school feeling. The administration was hit or miss. The guidance counselors were lousy and only had the school's best interest at heart and not the students. Most guidance counselors were rude. I found out the guidance counselors were making AP classes seem more desirable than they really were. They told us that every university would love to see this AP course on our transcript, but none of the universities I got accepted into, took the score. I could have taken other classes that would have been more beneficial.
