    I attended Edisto High School and graduated in the class of 2010. I was in no way prepared for college. I struggle everyday to be able to keep up with other students and the professors. I would not recommend anyone send their child to this school! I can not stress that enough the teachers did not care about teaching students nor did they have adequate knowledge of the subjects they taught.

    I was an honor student at Edisto and currently attend Clemson University. Edisto prepared me to face the challenges that I would face at Clemson with their outstanding Science and Math department. Ms. Hill Mr.D Mrs. Gibney are just a few of many great teachers at Edisto

    My child although an honor student was not equipped for college when it came to calculus. Although the teacher apologized for not preparing them that didn't benefit the students. There is much room for improvement at Edisto although when we moved here we were told it was the best in the area. There are good teachers but there are others that in my opinion are just getting a paycheck.

    I am a graduate of Edisto High School (year 2003). I think Edisto is a wonderful place! I am a New York native and I moved back right after I graduated. Let me just say that I immediately got a job at a major corporation in downtown Manhattan. I used the skills I recieved from Edisto so........you have an A+ in my book! Thank You Mrs. Sandra Ott Mrs. Cooper and Mrs. Keitt

    All you have to do is compare this school to others within a 30 mile or so area and you will find that the test scores for this school are exceptional. It is obvious that the teachers are doing their job and that the parents are involved with their children otherwise scores of this caliber could not have happened. There are plenty of extracurricular activities for the students to get involved with (sports band etc.). I graduated 15 years ago from this school and was well equipped for college. Edisto is still providing that same great education.

    Edisto is one of the better schools in the low country. Their pact scores are almost last. The students have basically the run of the school. Most of the teachers don't know how to teach. The students have virtually no work because the teachers are not trained to handle kids these days. They don't care if you pass or fail. They definitly don't show any effort at all. Not all of them just a few of them that don't care at all and don't want your kids there at all.

    Edisto is becoming a better school we have great administrators such as Mr. Vaughn Ms. Smith and Mr. Byers. The school is a place where you feel very safe and is one of the best High Schools in the state.

    I am a student at Edisto High School last year right outside Orangeburg SC. The SAT scores are not exceptable at this school. I think we need to focus more on the academics in order to succeed here at Edisto. The direction that we are heading in is getting better but more improvement is needed for us to succeed after the High School Years.
