Edina Senior High School Reviews

Edina High School has some good qualities, but also a lot of bad ones. On the negative side, it's a completely non-progressive school that tries it's hardest to appear modern. There are a lot of teachers who don't teach the curriculum, and it tends to be an unwelcoming environment for BIPOC students. It's nearly impossible to change your schedule once you've chosen your classes, which you are required to choose half a year before- so if you are struggling with a class, you can't really transfer out (although they do have tutoring and counseling resources). However, on the positive side, they have a decent-sized catalog of classes to choose from, as well as recently remodeled classrooms and common spaces. They also have a fair amount of extracurricular activities to choose from (though the majority of these activities are not widely advertised and can be very difficult to find). They also have plenty of events.

Great teachers! Every teacher cares about each student and wants them to succeed. There are so many resources that are provided by the school such as teacher office hours, peer tutoring, and many other resources.
Edina High School is an excellent school. With the number of opportunities the students get, they are well prepared for college. I graduated recently and I feel like Edina has prepared me well for college. The academic rigour and expectations the teachers put forth allowed me to excel at the University of Minnesota. In addition to academic rigour, Edina has a wide variety of extra curriculars. Many of the sports teams are the best in the state. There are numerous clubs and the fine arts department is also exceptional. Edina is a great place for students to find their own niche being that it is a larger midsize school.
