I have no words to express how happy I am with Edgewood Children's Ranch. From the cottage parents (Bruce and Indiana) to the office staff (Mr. Marty) I mean everyone has been so professional and have been truly inspirational to my son. They have worked one on one with him and my son has done a 360. I am so thankful with all that he has learned and how much his character has changed for the good. I remember the first day I dropped him.. I cried all the way home. I thought well... this is my first day I'll get over it... But, not at all I cried every single time I drove off. But, with tears of joy. I was so grateful for each and everyone who have impacted my childs life. I recommend this school to any and everyone that has a teenager going the wrong way, not putting much effort into school I guarantee you that once they enter the Ranch that they will totally change. My son entered 9th grade with bad grades and no motivation and leaves with 10th grade credits. He was determined to make a positive change in his life and I can't be more proud of him! Thank you all for all of your support! I will never forget this experience that has also taught me how to be a better mother. Angela

My eldest son now attends Edgewood. He started May of last year and returned Aug.1. He loves the P.A.C.E. program that they offer. He is working hard to get up to grade level. The teacher's have supported him, and found ways to reward his achievements. He was passed on, and on through elementary schools (Lake Sybella, and Brookshire). Then started at Lockhart Middle, to be labled as lazy, and (more or less) stupid. This continued after barley passing S.L.D testing. His G.P.A. at end of school year was 94.6 which greatly shows me that my son learns differently then Orange County Schools teach. He is a Rancher so he is also learning more of God's Love and Wisdom. Which, to me, is the greatest gift he can be given. If God is leading you hear, listen to him, don't fight it. It is God's Will. God Bless you!
