My son has attended Edmondson for two years now and we love it! The teachers and staff are excellent! Mrs. Malik is a caring principal who knows and has concern for each and every student. The STEM program provides opportunities for students to engage in meaningful, hands-on learning activities. And the school cultivates an atmosphere of kindness, respect, and learning.
We have had a student at LEES for the last 9 years. In that time, things have changed and evolved in such a positive way! The implementation of STEM has really changed things for the better. Not just for the school, but students, parents and the community. Our kiddos are excited to go to school, they can't wait for Winter break/Spring break/Summer vacation to end. We often catch them playing school at home, and hear them mimic things that are taught in the classroom. This tells me that they are not only absorbing what is being taught, it tells me that they enjoy HOW they are being taught. The staff is amazing at keeping parents informed as well as involved. I enjoy walking into the building and knowing that my kids are in good hands while they are there. They are quick to address any concerns you may have or help in any way they are able. It takes a team effort for the best outcome for our children and they are quick to join the team.
What great community. Students are known and supported by all. The staff consistently pull together to serve the community and student in everyway possible. There is such excitement in teaching and learning, especially with the STEM focus. Problem based learned seems to excite and energize the students. My children now have personal ways to relate to issues they will one day need to find solutions to. Lego Robotics, Cardboard Challenge, Genius Hour are al excellent examples of projects that excite these kids. Trish Malik is an incredible leader taking each students best interest to heart. The staff at Edmondson are very focused on outcomes and it shows in their classrooms each day.
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Focus School. My son loves the integration! Last years highlights were Cain's Challenge Box Building, Science Night (with robot building), and anol lizard habitats. Great stuff! Staff is caring, kind, compassionate, helpful, educated, and patient. Love the extras-super great sports day, computer lab, school musical, and after school activities.
We LOVE our school! The academic mission of this school is clear, evidence of mission is seen throughout the school from hallway decoration to student work. Documentation of progress monitoring such as data tracking systems, professional development days dedicated to data reflection and progress monitoring. Any time you walk in to talk to a teacher they can show you progress monitoring systems in place for both adults and students that make job performance and academic progression clear and apparent to all involved parities from administrators to parents. Students are challenged and are expected to rise to the occasion or voice concerns when struggling with work,the teachers are always willing to stay over and help or set up the help for the student that is in need.The administration and staff at Edmondson are meeting the needs of all students regardless of there social or academic ability or home environment. It is evident through the climbing test scores how much this school means to the staff, administration and parents. Good Job Laurene Edmondson!!
