Excellent school. The community and school board reinvest in to the schools. Teachers are very involved and available. The support for students with an IEP is amazing. So many opportunities in programs outside of the classroom. Very competitive environment. Would not recommend moving here from out of state with children older then 8. Very closed off community. People have lived here for centuries with their childhood friends and family living next door. All three of my children have had a difficult time.
This is an amazing school. The teachers are hard-working, enthusiastic, and personable! The superintendent and school board seem future-oriented and up on technology. The only weird thing is that they don't seem interested in changing the school district boundaries to include more kids from the city of Edina, even though this would result in more money for Edina schools. I've heard that they're caught between doing what's best for Edina schools versus doing what will keep the other school districts and the Minnesota Department of Education people happy, & they're choosing the other school districts & the Dept. of Education. Other than that though, the district seems to be going in the right direction.
I think Edina has the best schools and people, this isnt because i am a Edina kid its because i know Edina kids and how there just like everyone else in the world and everywhere even if they might have a little more money then others that doesnt mean were diffrent. Were all the same, whether some people have more money then others or not. So i think that all Edina schools are great.
Edina High School offers many AP courses and excels in academics and sports. We are named state champions for Hockey, Track, Tennis, Comp Cheer, and many other sports. The school contains a variety of different cliques. Theater kids, Athletic kids, AP kids, etc... We do not like to be defined snobby or rich. In fact not everyone who attends is filthy rich. Many highschoolers that attend can be judgmental, not good for new kids. Also upperclassmen take advantage of seniority. Edina kids are prone to party alot. Other than the downs, there are many ups to attending EHS.
Edina offers myriad chances for students to excel, and it's teachers are top notch. Besides the many opportunities for academic achievement, Edina boasts top class athletics as well. The administration promotes pride as individuals and a school.
