The quality of the education is very high at St. Edwards. The facility is lacking, but pretty classrooms and swimming pools don't help gpa's and ACT scores. My child has highly experienced teachers and is going to be ready for college when he graduates.

St. Edward High School is where friendship begins. There are three skills that are possessed by the students: Academic, Athletic, and Achievement. Here at St. Edward High School there are many classes to chose from and gets you prepared for college. I highly recommend this school.
