If I could I would give NO STARS, Edwardsville District 7 does not care for special needs children. I fought for 9 years for an IEP for my child and they blew me off every time. Made me feel I was in the wrong for even fighting for one. My child is mentally ill, needed extra help for years and showed signs of Dyslexia. Nothing not one thing was EVER done for her no matter how much I fought. We had 1 great teacher and that was her best year. I give that teacher 5 stars! this school ZERO. The district total ZERO. Couldn't even verbally get in contact personally with Ed Hightower. Was told to write a letter. A LETTER.....REALLY. something that could be dismissed and thrown away. Don't let the rating's fool you if you aren't part of the 1% you aren't important at Dist 7. THANK GOODNESS WE MOVED! My Child Went here K-2nd and was bullied about being fat and started starving herself. I was appalled at what little was done. AND please explain to me why there are book fees in Dist. 7 when the books are never new? There are still books being used from the Early 90's. Where does our $$ GO?!

I agree that this school is definitely not the best in the district. The staff is a very unprofessional, gossipy bunch. I was appalled by their behavior and the fact that they would bad mouth their students and parents behind closed doors. Ugh! It's a shame too because the other schools in this district are so outstanding. I guess there is a black sheep in every bunch.

We choose this district because of the high ratings. I have been really disappointed. A lot of what my children learned this year they had already learned the previous year. The school is not family friendly. I could not bring my toddler to school parties, or field day, etc. Having lunch with my child was just short of a nightmare. They take few educational field trips. I cannot wait for my child to start a new district next year.

Wonderful principal, very involved and loves the students! Building and technology could use some updating. Great experience for K but made it a few months into 1st and removed my daughter. Teacher was not taking care of other children exhibiting very inappropriate behavior and I was done. Market Day is really neat and school has minimal fundraisers. I've never had an experience where a public school charged for books though, $78 per child. Also, field trips were frequent and can get expensive. There are plenty of different ways parents can help out. Overall decent experience, average public school.

Principal leadership has alsways been outstanding. Veteran teachers likewise. The opportunities for parent involvement are never ending. This is a wonderful school!

Great school for kids. Only downside - no advanced curriculum for gifted children.
