Wonderful experiences at EVG. This is a great school and it also has an amazingly supportive community behind it.

Overall terrible experience which is unfortunate because the lower grades started so well but from 4th- 6th grade there needs to be a serious revamping.

I have two kids in the Edgewater School system. EVG has been great for my son. Their teachers are trained through Columbia University’s TCRWP and are trained by Staff Developers who work in some of NYC’s top public schools. Spanish is taught on all grade levels and their fifth and sixth grade is departmentalized, which gives kids a “mini Middle School experience”. The school has historic charm and has a renovated gymnasium. There is tech is every classroom and the schoolyard is huge!!!!

I am in 5th grade here and its great. It has just celebrated its 100 year anniversary in January 2015. I love the teachers and the programs. I like that in 5th grade and 6th grade you have a different teacher for each subject and you switch classes just like middle school. The playground is really nice and the school has a big field. Every year firefighters and cops come to talk about safety and their job. They also have 1 author visit every year. Great school.

Teachers work hard and my child has made tremendous improvements in her writing. Very pleased with EVG.
