My son attends Edgewood. He loves Edgewood and so do we! He takes is in the COMPASS program and it fits his needs well. Since enrolling at Edgewood he has come a long way. Teachers are awesome and it is a very friendly school.

My child is enrolled in the Compass program at Edgewood for kids with Aspergers Syndrome. It has been great for him. The teachers in his regular classes are also all engaged with the kids and helpful and encouraging. We haven't met a bad teacher yet there.

My son is ADHD and I enrolled him at Edgewood because of the outstanding Special Ed program there. He's gone from B's, C's, D's in elementary school to (this past quarter) all A's except for one B!! I am thrilled and amazed. The staff is setting him up for success instead of failure. I cannot rave enough about the quality/caliber of the wonderful people who work with my boy.
