Hi I am going to be a new student at this school. I am entering eight grade is it really that bad? Are kids mean there? Thanks

The main weakness I saw in this school, which my daughter attended for two years, was the bullying. The students were unusually mean to fellow students. I know of 2 parents who moved their children because of the lack leadership in the school, in regards to the mean character of some students. It ...  Read more

As with all of my experiences at Highland Park schools, my experience here was unpleasant and marked by ostracism, inept administrators, lack of compassion or protection from bullying, and mixed academics (at best). None of the so-called "disability services" staff and faculty understood the needs of ...  Read more

I went to school at Edgewood and so did my siblings. It was excellent and it fully prepared us for high school and college. Academics were way ahead at Edgewood and allowed me to start more advanced courses in high school. Great teachers.

I am in advanced English and the highest math class. Apparently, I am learning freshman year high school material. ...  Read more

Ok, so I moved to Illinois this year, and the school acdemically is great! socially terrible. I was one of the WORST schools i have been to, and I move a lot.

School is fine-District officials are liars, cowards and do not care about the students-only themselves. If you can avoid-Do it!!

I started at this school in sixth grade and am currently an eighth grader in the class of '09. I have had both amazing and horrible teachers, and the academics overall are pretty good. I would give this school an average review if it wasn't for the vibe of the school itself. Most kids swear a lot and ...  Read more
