Edmondson West Side High School is an amazing place to work and the children are fantastic.... Since the two years that Karl E. Perry took over the school has been turning around in all areas especially academic opportunities. The different awesome trades that the school provides is second to none with the knowledgeable instructions makes a beautiful combination. We are the State champs in Basketball and we would like to say: EWHS, Go Red Storms Go!!!!!

Edmondson High is a lost treasure. With a shrinking budget, this school continues to have dedicated teachers, administrators, and paraprofessionals. Students have AP classes and many students in their trades(child care, baking, business, culinary arts, nursing assistants, etc) are employed in positions in their fields when they graduate high schools. The overall goal is to ensure that students are certified in their specialty before they graduate. This is a great effort on the students part as well as the instructors.

Don't EVER send your child to this school. This year is my first year here and in 2 weeks I'm getting transferred. The students are disrespectful and wild. Its fights everyday. There is no way to learn in this school. The staff doesn't let us use lockers so we have to carry our books around, they lock the bathrooms, and the school is dirty. I would NOT reccomend any class of '15 or whoever is going to that school.

This school offers so many possibilites. Like all of the A.P and honor classes. The trades also help you learn a job, and the best part is that you get to choose your trade

I rate the school as average due to its lack of complete parent involvement, they have dropped the ball some what when it comes to notifying parents of events before the day of as well as keeping parents informed about school improvement team meetings, the lack of a running PTA or even any effort in trying to form an active PTA.

I attended Edmondson-Westside high and graduated in 2005. I believe Edmondson was good for an inner city school. The teachers and staff were pretty good. However, some of the students could be rude and out of hand. Overall, I would say my high school experience was pretty good at Edmondson.

Have you and your son had a meeting with the Guidance Counselor? Have you spoken with the Principal? You can have your child taken out of ROTC since it is not an elective. Be a wife of a military person, I too did not want my son in ROTC last year, but for the short time he was in, it helped him express himself better, the discipline was good for him as well as his self confidence. Hopefully you will join the PTA, the School Improvement Team or something to not only voice your concerns but to bring ideas to the school to better the school.

My son and I were elated to be accepted at EWHS. A lot of my relatives, including my brother, his wife and my younger sister attended EWHS. I have always preceived this school to be the best as it relates to sports. My son plays sports and is doing well academically. I like EWHS and would recommend this learning institution with great pride.

I honestly hate this school. It's probably the worst learning enviroment you could put your children in. The enviroment is full of rudeness and disrespect and not to forget how dirty the school is. And one other thing who decided to issue a leadership class for the 9th grade. I have no problem with the JROTC because student sgin up for that crap if they want it but a leadership class is not needed. I dont want my child going to the army and I dont want him to be learning about violence. This school dont let you choose which classes your child want because I have tried many of times to get my child out of that pathetic class but no they wonot let you.

I graduated in 2002, and absolutely love Edmondson. The teachers were great (Ms. Thomas, Thompson, Peales, Harris, Mr. Smith, Mountain, Blimline, Rosey-everybody!) Now that I live out of state and have little ones of my own; I truley value the hard work and passion of Edmondson's teachers. I just hope my little girls have teachers like I had.

As a senior at Edmondson-Westside, I now know the true meaning of school pride. I am proud to say that I attend Edmondson-Westside. The students are great (most of the time) and the teachers are just excellent. I could not have asked for a better school to attend.

I am a former parent of a student at Edmonson Westside and I can say the for the most part the students were actively concerned about their education. Most are very mature and hard working. Their are a few who are not but that's with any school. Edomonson is safe and all the children learn. Many of the teachers live in the community so it's like one big family. Way to go Edmonson!

As an alumni of Edmondson Westside High School, i think that it is a great school. I like the fact that the programs that they have are hands on. In cosmotoloty, you do hair, in culinary arts you cook, in computer repair you repair computers. It's amazing. I loved my high school career. I couldn't have made a better decision attending that school. (Class of 2005)

For me, Edmondson was somewhere to go when I didn't want to go home. As my school years went on, I began to appreciate the school more. My grades were outstanding and the work is easy if you pay attention. Shout out: Ms. Tonya Luster! She is the most kindest person you will ever meet. Reppin 07

I think Edmondson Westside Highschool is a really good school. The teachers are great role models and they always put forth the effort to help you. When you walk into Edmondson, it makes you feel proud that you are apart of such a modest school. As a Junior, I feel that this school has helped me with all that I need. My teachers has always motivated me to do the best. One teacher really stands out. Her name is Ms Peggy Thomas and she is one of a kind. Thank you Ms Thomas.

I think that Edmondson Westside High is a great school. You have great afterschool activities. The teachers are willing to stay afterschool to help you out with anything. As a student(class of 2006) I should know how the school works. I have business as my trade and they thought me some things eventhough I already knew how to do it from my mother. Some teachers you will get along with and some you wont. Ex: Rosey is a teacher you will get along with eventhough he is a hard teacher.

As a member of the class of 2005, I can say without a doubt that the teachers of Edmondson Westside care. They care about the wellbeing of your child and consistiently helps your child achieve their goals. The staff at Edmondson (ie teachers, admnistrators, and many others)always try to encourage the students to put their best foot foward and strive for the best no matter what it maybe. Even though they are hard on us at times we should realize that it's in our best interest.

After having graduated from Edmondson-Westside High School in the class of 2003 I must say that Edmondson is an excellent school. The teachers and staff are concerned with educating each student. The Career and Technology Education programs help to teach skills that can be used in higher education, the workplace, and every other circumstance in life.

As a Junior at this school I feel that the school has a lot of interesting career and technology programs in which students can take up courses in a field they wish to have later in life. I'm in the Culinary Arts program. In there my teachers Chef Cole and Chef Hinnant do their very best to try to make the trade more fun. Above all, Edmondson is the best school for Career and Technology programs. (class of 2005)

This is a pretty good school if your child likes sports and extracurricular activities. The safety of the school is not that great becuase the children have to cross a busy street in between classes. The overall curiculum is good, although I do believe it could better.
