Great School! We are blessed to have our children attend Edgewood. Great teachers, staff, and most of all GREAT principle.
We have been very impressed with Edgewood School. We had concerns coming from a small private school, but Edgewood has got to be one of the district's (if not state's) best-kept secrets. The teachers go above and beyond, the parent involvement is strong without feeling exclusive, and the leadership seems experienced and capable. Other highlights include the art program (the kindergarteners replicated Matisse, for example!), the music/band program, and the volunteer-run elective enrichment offered to the 7th-8th graders. The free breakfast and lunch - provided to every child - with whole grain breads and low sugar cereals and local produce, also stands out. Okay, no school is perfect - no child, class or teacher is either. But Edgewood's a wonderful example of a school that is soundly beating the odds in New Haven.
Edgewood is a very high quality school. I care about my daughter's education, and I'm glad she's going to Edgewood. The parental involvement provides students AND parents with a wonderful way to be included, involved, and social. Students can participate in the school play, the school garden run by parents, one of a great many afterschool programs and classes run by parents, jazz band, Soccer, and so many other avenues of participation. Parents can volunteer to help with many of the aforementioned programs (there's also a great many social events that take place that are usually planned by parents). And every other Friday morning, there's even Cafe' Edgewood, where students and parents play music while parents and staff socialize. One concept that has always struck me is the admin and teachers really care about the students and the Principal provides good leadership and is responsive to parental concerns.
School plays, chorus, band, soccer, great staff and lots of parent involvement.
Lots of community-building events; strong arts program! And the school play is fantastic!
Great teaching staff and exciting programs/activities, i.e. Cafe Edgewood! Good PTO.
This school is fun and provides a very good education for not only students but parents as well. The parents can come to school and participate in everything from the PTA to the school play to just spending a day in their child's classroom. The education standards set by teachers are very high and they encourage their students to think outside the box and in new ways. The kids welcome new classmates but retain bonds with other aquantances they have known since kindergarden. The school has a wide range of activities in and outside of school, including:chorus, drama, band, music, dance, gym, art, math, and much more. Edgewood is also very fun for students because they attend trips, listen to speakers, have a monthly meeting where they display what they have been learning, and create projects that relate to their studies in a creative way.
This is a fine example of a city school with a highly diverse student body. The staff are wonderful, providing a supportive, nurturing atmosphere and setting high standards. Parent involvement is very high; there are many events, a great school play. The principal is responsive and attentive. Take care to enter the lottery in time!
