    This school is amazing. Ive gone to edina schools since kindergarten and I have made so many friends and have had so much fun there. The teachers are fun and show discpline when it needs to be shown and I have just been having a great time here.

    My oldest child is very bright so I was afraid she would fall through the cracks of such a large middle school. To the contrary she was placed in an advanced reading class (more like a 'reading-based projects' class truth be told) and an accelerated math class. She has thrived. For our next two children we'll try to get them involved in the same programs but they are not as academically inclined as our first. I'm not worried at all about them though. The school is terrific.
