Compared to many other suburbs I have been in, there is a lot to do! There are many parks around the city, a pool, country clubs, shopping mall, and two areas of shops and restaurants. The public schooling system is very prestigious and all the neighborhoods are safe.

I'm currently a high school student and resident of Edina, Minnesota. The public schools here are outstanding especially, Normandale Elementary French Immersion. At this school, I was able to develop as a bi-lingual student then join the other students in middle school. This program has completely changed my life and made it possible for me to travel and experience the Francophone culture.
I moved to Edina Public Schooling in 7th grade. I didn't realize until I graduated and attended a 4-year University of how well the school district prepared me for the transition. It is a beautiful suburb with plenty activities to do. Located their is Simon Mall- Southdale, multiple parks, and a ton of food chains! You will never go hungry or not have anything to view in Edina. Honestly, one of my favorite down times was strolling through the high-end neighborhoods and just looking at the houses. The only downfall would the exclusivity that comes from Edina. It has a reputation of relying on daddy's money. But I like to look at this as a positive. It shows you, with hard work you can achieve a lavish lifestyle and flourish because of your determination.
