When we first moved in the area, I was so worried about my children’s transition to the new schools. It was my child’s first year of middle school, I was a nervous wreck! Katherine Edwards welcomes us and made us feel comfortable. The teachers are great and the office staff too! The principal is AWESOME!!! She helped my son get through a few bullying issues right away!!!! This is my child’s second year there and he loves it!
My daughter came from a small elementary school outside if the immediate area. She experienced some bullying at the elementary level but eventually overcame most issues there. When deciding on a middle school, I heard such negative things about Edwards. I, however, had known that Edwards was a good school. My son had graduated from Edwards just a few years before my daughter started attending. As a matter of fact, my son returned to Edwards to work on his Senior project,...which was based on his experience in Mr. Culton's music class. Edwards has helped to nourish my children's minds and hearts. The teachers are supportive. The kids are great. I feel badly for anyone who chooses their children's middle school based on the opinion of those who haven't experienced all that Edwards has to offer. If you are unhappy with your child's middle school, get involved. Keep your tax dollars working in YOUR community!! Thank you Edwards...you have helped me to raise one successful college student and you are currently helping me to raise a daughter who is a hard working leader!
What an amazing school! I must say the teacher are great not only does my daughter absolutely love them all but her grades are proof that they are doing their jobs as educators.
