I had a good experience at Edsel Ford. I really enjoyed most of my classes and teachers. There is probably a total of 2 teachers throughout my four years there that I wasn't a big fan of but overall I had really good relationships with my teachers, I never struggled very much in academics. I also had really good experiences with extracurricular activities including student council, National Honor Society, Link, Theater department, and multiple sports. All these activities I had really awesome advisors, coaches, etc. I never had any issues in High school regarding any teachers or administrators.

I like how there is a diversity that is present at Edsel Ford High School. I also like how there are not many narrow-minded people there and the teachers are pretty good. The students and teachers are mostly nice. There are so many options that are available to the students. There are a lot of clubs and activities that students can do or join. There are at least 5 languages as an option to choose from. There is a library with many book options. ALOT of AP classes are available, as well as options like dual enrollment, MBCC, DCMST, Henry Ford Early College, and Collegiate Academy. However, the food is really not that good. It's very cold, greasy, and disgusting and the food options are very low. I really hope that they get new food options and better chefs. In short, everything except the food options is GREAT.
Overall, Edsel Ford was a great school to attend. They have a variety of sports, clubs, and activities to fit everyones needs. The academics and help provided if needed gives everyone a chance to excel. I would not have changed much with my class and felt like you get what you put into it! Class of 2019
