EDW Is an amazing school. Teachers and administrators are very engaged in student success (both emotionally and intellectually). There is great open communication and the school values of caring, assertion, responsibility, empathy and self control are woven into everything students and teachers do. As someone who works in many schools in neighboring districts I know we have something special at EDW. It's a wonderful community with amazing teachers, parents, students, and administrators all dedicated to the success of all students. We love this school!
My children have gone to EDW since preschool (5 years now). Couldn't be happier with the school. Very engaged principle who knows every child by name. Love the small size giving me a chance to know most of the other children and the teachers. I'm sorry another parent had an issue with bullying. When there were incidents involving two of my children the school stepped in immediately. They didn't just say it wasn't allowed. They also set up times for both the parents and children to meet to work it out. If I could improve anything with EDW, it would be smaller classroom sizes and exposure to a second language.
this school has a high tolerance for bullying. The teachers talk way too much about there personal info in front the students. They're irresponsible and don't pay attention to the children's needs. I say run for the hills from this school!
This is truly an amazing school. The school provides a wonderful, encouraging envirnment. My children have excelled due to the excellent teachers, caring staff and terrific principle. My children are learning in a fun, challaging, exciting way. I am thankful to all at EDW for all they do!
For the most part, EDW's teachers are experienced and very good. The special ed staff are excellent, and work well with students, teachers and parents. Parents are very involved and welcome in the school. Music begins in kindergarten, with instruments beginning in 4th grade. There is not a separate art program. Destination Imagination teams are parent-driven, and there are usually 2 teams per year. There is a gifted extracurricular program that begins after second grade, and some advanced curriculum for advanced students within the classroom.
