Great, but Short-changed by Superintendent & School Board: The principal & teachers are superb. They listen and resolve any issues with competence. My child has learned more than I can believe. My only concern is that funding can be tight. Meanwhile, many families are from the city of Edina but not the Edina school district. They want a district boundary change so their property taxes can go to Edina schools, but people at the district level won't support the issue. The funding shortage means kids at this school need to bring many classroom supplies from home and pay out-of-pocket for all activities, field trips, special programs, etc. It's still a great school though.

This school is fabulous. The students are kind and caring, and many teachers are extremely charismatic to students and parents. A few problems that could be adjusted are cliques, pranking, minor bullying, and speaking put more during LGBTQQA month. Overall, this school is excellent, especially in education of gifted students. -A Student

The principal is creative, hard-working, innovative and an excellent listener. The teachers are some of the best. My only complaint is that there are cliques in the lunchroom. A handful of popular kids cuts in lines and excludes the majority of other students from sitting near them. It would be nice if kids sat according to the class that they just came from, or if once per week there would be a mix-it-up Monday, or something like that. Kids would verbally complain, but I think that they would feel some relief "on the inside."

you learn a lot, but many of the staff for special education were less than kind if one of the kids corrected them or didn't want to do something. instead of helping them, they would usually send them to the office for "tone of voice issues." the students are somewhat rude (like a lot of students all over), and some of the teachers are less than understanding too. I would say it was a bit overstaffed, and the teachers seem to not care about a few things.

Nothing good to say about this school at all, overstaffed and overestimated. Would never recommend this school to anyone.

This is a superb middle school. It has a pattern of innovation that is unmatched. There are many programs in place to reach students who are academically struggling, thriving, and in the middle. There is a clear passion from administration to make this a school that meets the needs of all students and teachers set clear expectations and hold students to high standards. There is a commitment to teaching students and helping them develop into the people they want to be. I really like the direction of the school and the focus the staff has on equity and excellence.

Great school. The teachers are excellent. The communication from teachers and the principal is impressive. The school is in tune with the psychological and emotional make-up of the middle grades. The school is organized and very well run, but not too controlling or harsh on kids. The class offerings are incredible.

Great teachers and professional staff to assist students with special needs. Excellent principal that cares about and relates with students.

An above average middle school in a district of high achieving students. The administrative leadership seems receptive towards challenging all students academically, including gifted, by allowing curriculum modifications to extend outside of grade level, and through appropriate teacher assignments and student placements. Teaching staff is young and enthusiastic, but individual teacher familiarity with implementing curriculum differentiation is still weak. Hoever, there are some really excellent, well qualified teachers on staff, who can be found by asking around among other parents. This school has strong parent involvement and support in school activites. One draw-back: the middle school is home to grades 6-9, which unfortunately, short changes the 9th graders out of a true high school freshman experience.
