I went to Edwardsburg for three years and i have been bullied all three years by different individuals. I have gone to the vice principle with evidence that something was going on and he just pretty much blew it off! I personally do not recommend this school and they need to take bullying more seriously!!

This school is alright. I am currently attending and can see why people praise it. However, there are a lot of flaws hiding just below the surface. The elective classes are few and far between. The classes available offer basic skills and the classes that were worth something were taken out years ago. Don't expect to learn any life skills only skills to prepare for the ACT or other standardized tests. Also, jocks run the school. It's the stereotypical school where those who aren't on the football team are looked down upon. Due to this, physical education classes can become a chore as every student takes it way too personally. The two major cliques in the school are jocks and white trash. Nearly every student you meet has done Marijuana at one point or another. Most students would rather talk about you behind your back than get to know you. School funding goes mainly towards sports and school lunches cost way too much for the portions and quality of the food. There are few teachers who care about teaching meaningful material rather than what's going to be on the ACT and the whole curriculum is based around this test. After the test it's basically a "what now?" situation as teachers assign the first thing that comes to mind. That said, you WILL make close friends attending as I have known most of my friends for 6 years or more. The school spirit during homecoming week is like none other as well. Seas of orange and blue as far as the eye can see. The school really does come together during these spirit weeks. Edwardsburg high school is better than most schools close to it but is still mediocre at best. The cons outweigh the pros.

I see a lot of people here raving about EHS. I felt it would be best for me, a relatively recent graduate who attended a research university and is currently in graduate school for a PhD in a life science discipline, to share my opinion. I graduated in 2007, so a few years ago. However, I have a sibling that is a more recent graduate as well. One thing to keep in mind is that while EHS is probably better than the 2-3 alternatives that are anywhere close-ish, it is by no means an excellent school. You won't find significant drug problems, and the class sizes are typically small. However, you also won't find ANY AP classes. How a school that has no AP classes can be rated this highly is beyond me. They used to have AP Biology, but that is no longer available. There are no "honors" classes either. Instead of all these things you have the option to transport yourself ~30 mins away to a community college (in the winter this is no small feat), or as a freshman you can enroll in a math and science center (also pretty far away). Just because a school has small class sizes does not mean that it is an excellent learning environment. I would've rather gone somewhere that could've prepared me for higher Ed better. Once again, it's a small town high school which is low on crime, etc. It is not, however, a place where you're going to receive any more than the bare minimum.

You'll be hard-pressed to find a better school system in southwest Michigan. They've broadened the range of classes available in the high school over the past decade or so. Various business, computers, and personal finance classes are available. One issue that I do have: classes are not weighted. A student getting all A's in AP classes doesn't get any advantage over a student getting all A's taking the bare minimum courses. Due to this, I ended up ranked lower in comparison to other classmates than I should have been. But this is an issue that will rarely affect something like college admissions, so it's not necessarily a huge problem.

Edwardsburg High School has the most school spirit in any school around. Especially during Homecoming Week when everyone dresses up in crazy outfits. Even when it is not homecoming, the Edwardsburg Eddies have a lot of spirit at any sports game. Our varsity soccer and junior varsity football are undefeated this season! The Eddies take a lot of pride in our school work as well. The Eddies are always upbeat and have smiles on our faces. As of right now we also have the most amazing principal ever. Mr. Quimby is such a great principal, he is very personalbe. He writes the students notes and shares the with us. He ever dresses up on spirit days with all of the students. Edwardsburg High School os definetely the place to have the most fun and learn a lot too! GO EDDIES!!!

Edwardsburgs public school system is by far one of the best schools in the country. They have an excellent staff and top notch facilities. Their standard of discipline is great. Your well protected in those buildings. Now i will say that if you don't feel like applying yourself, or behaving and staying out of trouble, dont go to edwardsburg.

Edwardsburg School system may 'look' good, but there are many flaws. The first is the Superintendent. All he cares about is the image of the schools. He would rather spend money on making the landscape look good instead of using it to fund an extracurricular activity or for school supplies. The reason that the test scores are good is because they spend the month before the MEAP practically giving out the answers so that the students do well on the tests. Also, they would rather put students in a class that they do not want instead of hiring more teachers to offer more classes. The Edwardsburg School System will do whatever they can just so they can get more money even at the students expense. I left the school system because my family and I did not like the way the schools were ran. The school system is truely overrated.

I think that Edwardsburg has come along way, and it only keeps getting better! The Principal and Vice Principal really care about the kids. I do believe that there could be more time spent on informing the kids about what comes after high school, what is available to them, what kind of grants etc. are out there .

Don't let test scores fool you. High school is about more than just how many kids passed the state test. There are no clubs to speak of, and the administration doesn't know what is going on in the 'real world.' Going to be overcrowded within the next couple of years but the administration is turning a blind eye and doing nothing to solve the problem. I will give them props on the science department, however there are no 'computer' classes, and the english department has teachers who couldn't really care less about students. Also teachers have absolutly no standardized rules for discipline and other problems at all. And the drugs sold at the apartments across the street do hurt its image a little bit...

The administration is worried about there image, I feel there motto is image first students second. There is no consistancy at the school. If you bring up any issues they will rarely get back to you.

The school is lacking many things. Dedication of teachers is something that needs to be dealt with. New vice principal gets thumbs up.
