    I agree with this parent here we are in 2013 and nothing has change so sad..

    I think the teachers are great. I feel the parents try to be involved but the office makes it difficult.

  • (5 years ago)

    It is the school my son went to and it is the school my grand kids go to. They keep the school in good condition and the teachers care about their students.

    This is my child's 1st year at Edgewood. Her teacher is wonderful informative. I can't believe how much much my child has learned over the past 4 months.

    Great Teachers! Administration (principle and office staff) somewhat difficult to work with. Not overly responsive to simple needs and/or requests.
