The education level in some areas especially science is at a lower level than other schools. There is a huge bullying problem within the district even at the high school level. The schools district does not set realistic goals for their students and therefore children graduate not ready to face the world ahead.

Our family relocated from Belleville for a better school environment. My daughter attended Edwardsville high school all four years. She experienced only minor problems that were always handled appropriately by school staff. She enjoyed her time and graduated in May of this year. She received a quality education in a safe environment. Thank you to all tge staff at Edwardsville high school.

This school represents the highest quality in education. I recommend this community and school to anyone moving into the area. This is a great investment.

Edwardsville High School was a very excellent in the education I received, they worked with me continuously to improve grades and always pushed me to go to college and make something of myself. Although it is getting very crowded and feels more like college then high school, lacking a sense of community. I wouldn't necessarily, though, say that would affect the quality of education they provide. I would have preferred a school smaller where the sense of community was much higher.

It is a top notch school where everyone in the community receives an outstanding education regardless of socioeconomic status. Their involvement in the community in general and local food pantry in particular is commendable.

I graduated from Edwardsville High School in 2006 and could not be more proud of the education I received. All teachers will go above and beyond to ensure every student's success. I highly recommend this school over any private school in the area.

I went to Edwardsville for the last to years of high school, while i thought they had some great teachers, the atmosphere lacked a human touch. From the outside it looks like a minimum security prison, and the inside has little improvement. The number of students overflowed my last year there in 2006, and the school scrambled to find space for everyone.

I greatly appreciated the opportunities available to me through EHS and the college preparedness I received. Unfortunately, EHS is lacking diversity within the faculty and administration. Even still, students have great opportunities despite the gap.

The teachers were amazing! Every teacher I had was intelligent and devoted to the students. The school is nice, new, and safe. The teachers pushed the students to succeed.

I recently graduated from Edwardsville High School. I received a well rounded education. The staff at Edwardsville High care about their students success in school and that shines through in the intelligent student body.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Prairie State Achievement Examination (PSAE) to test students in grade 11 in reading, math and science. The PSAE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
