The best best school ever, I love it. Everyone is nice and teachers are very nice plus the security guards their are really nice.
My son goes to Edsel and he is in 9th grade he loves it and he connects with the teachers great. The principal is great and connects with the students great. i haven't had a problem with bullying and that is a main problem in High School. I love this school and the teachers in it. All the teachers are great and know how to really connect with the kids. The 9th grade teachers really help the 9th graders with everything. Out of all the schools in Dearborn, my honest opinion is Edsel Ford.
My two kids both went to Edsel and wound up in good colleges, so I have no complaints. The current principal has been a real breath of fresh air for this school. A lot of the problems here date back to Dearborn's abortive 'school of choice' program, so Dearborn High two miles away, in a relatively more affluent area, recruited away most of the good athletes and performing arts students. That's stopped now, and it sure is funny how much more competent Edsel's coaches and instructors seem now that they have more talent to work with. I know, you may think that how good the sports teams or the school play are is silly stuff, but things like that are the front porch of your school, the most public part of it, and if they're terrible, it reflects on your whole shool. Dearborn is a unique community with a lot of Middle Eastern immigrants; the school itself is like a United Nations. Edsel reflects that. I think the new principal has brought in an honest effort at excellence here. The one problem I see here is lack of parental involvement -- the booster club and the PTA and other activities have pitifully small numbers of parents involved.
The school is very unorganized and i have sometimes felt that it is not a "real" school because it is missing so many things that makes a high school feel like high school, there are no pep rallys or homecoming parades and most of the students hate the school and there is a lot of racism and the building is very old and falling apart. The principal is really good but this school needs a lot of change. The sports are ok and the performing arts are good but are starting to fall apart due to budget cuts.
I have had good experiences with the principal. he was my daughter's principal in middle school and then came over with her when she came into high school. He has always been a very sensible man and the students best interests are always his top priority. he frequently stops my daughter in the hall to check in with her to get her feedback on how things are going. She tells him the truth and on certain occasions he has come to her classes to address certain students on their behavior. He has his hands full there, no doubt about it but he is doing a very well job:)
Despite what many parents say, Edsel Ford is actually a great school. The students at Edsel, for the most part, get a long very well. I have learned so much at Edsel Ford academically. The school spirit is also great, especially at football games. The current principal is a good role model for the students that attend EFHS. While not all teachers are the greatest, most teachers are good and connect with the students. Out of the other 3 or so high schools in Dearborn(FHS, DHS, and DC), I think Edsel is the best high school for me.
teachers do put effort and what other parents say about edsel ford(bad things) u can go ahead and say all things u hate edsel ford but everyone else knows that edsel is the best and it's based on results
Edsel's Percentage of students Graduating and going off to college is very low. The teachers dont put any effort to help my child.
As a student, when I moved to the area near Edsel Ford, I not only found how welcoming the community was, but how evident the school spirt was as well. The staff is friendly, and security is all over the place, which makes me rest assured that safety is evident.
Edsel Ford is a very excellet school. Not only that it is fun it also has many different classes to choose from.
Despite a very diverse population and many ESL students Edsel has a very strong language arts program that includes an optional humanities program, honors classes, and an AP program. The social studies program is also very competitive offering AP classes in European History as well American History and government. Math and science scores are competitive with the other Dearborn schools as well. The band and choir programs routinely turn in high marks at festivals and competitions. Athletically, there aren't many sports that aren't offered, especially for girls with sports such as gymnastics and field hockey. Lastly, the administration is top-notch. The current principal has served longer than any other administrator in the history of the school. The assistants principals are hands-on and competent in their everyday activities.
I thought this school was a pretty decent school. Consdiring there are worse schools in the area.
The environment at the school isn't suitable. School spirit is NOT adequete for all of the student body. Principal Has LOST control or is a willing participant.
There are only 6 hours and it could be 7. The students are missing out on electives with only 6 classes per term and so many program course requirements.
