Admittedly, I'm biased as I work at Edwards. Still, I have taught and worked at several different schools, in different states, and the level of teacher quality, parental support, our amazing students, and the overall caring culture of this school is excellent. I consider myself extremely lucky to ...  Read more

Great school, with great extra curricular activities! Teachers are awesome and very personal to ones need. Willing to go above and beyond for our children. If I had another chance in life. I will send them Edwards all over again!

This school is very prejudice. All they want is to speak Spanish to the students and parents. I am of Spanish descent but living here I believe that English should be the 1st spoken language to everyone, especially the children. The parents who are here illegally are bullied by the principal and school ...  Read more

I lived on Keeler and went to Edwards during the 1940s. It was then a fine school, had a tremendous library and superb art class. I'm saddend to hear that the school has problems. Things are supposed to get better over time.

The test scores speak for themselves. This is by no means a magnet school. Teachers are recycled through the system. There is no sense of community; if you go there 3 years from now, you will not see the same teacher.

The teachers are good, but there is no official discipline. The LSC meetings are closed meetings and they happen at times when most parents and community members are working. I want ALL the LSC meetings to be in the evenings. The leadership is very one-sided and not effective.

This is onr of the worst schools in the archer Hights area next to Curie H.S. Just as any other public school it is plagued by over crowding, budget cuts, and a degenerate student population. There are some verygood teachers but most of them are mediocer. Please avoid this school at all costs, especially ...  Read more

I can't believe that you guy's put this school with 4 stars. This school is one of the worst school i have been. They don't put attention to the kids or parents. The staff is really bad. For especial kids they don't any profecional ethics. If you wanted to subcribe your kid first talk to parent's.
