The teachers are great. This rating is a reflection of district and school policies. They have managed to squash all academic interests of my daughter though cancellation of electives (French as her foreign language elective) and exclusion of other class offerings. District focus only on the top students (PACE) and students needing academic support. If your child is in the regular classes they are invisible to the district. No interest in their academic achievement. Supports and challenges There is onlIf the student is not in the top or bottom The dis tilt main

Don't offer any type of challenging classes unless tested into PACE program. Not much available for 70% of the students. Can't develop grit and determination when students are told the are not smart enough to bother trying.

My son attended 7th and 8th grade at Edison Middle School, Wheaton, IL. Edison turned out to be the best academic experience we have had (and we have five children). Not only is the school very clean, it also has some of the best teachers we have ever experienced. It has an excellent orchestra program also. Our son was able to participate in the gifted program for math. The school prepared him very well for the talent search program (over 500 on both areas of the SAT) and was also competitive in English and Science. We really enjoyed the staff also.
