I have had nothing but good things to say about this school. My son has found a home there and is excited to go to school every day.
I would give this school less stars, if possible. The lack of drive to educate non-gifted students by teachers, curtailed with the leadership of an unprofessional principal, does not provide room to help children succeed. If you child is a A-B child, this will not change. If your child enters s a C-D child, his/her confidence will dwindle on account of the negative interaction with teachers, which is clearly obvious even with parent/teacher interaction. It is unfortunate that the great school system of Cranston has allowed this school to continue with its current organization.
This school is a Title I school and has a number of students who are ESL. over the past few years the Principle has focused on improving scores. this year they met most of their targets. We are very pleased with our experience at EHS. both my 5th grader and 2nd grader love going to school every day. they are high preforming kids who work hard at doing well in school. this is the type of school where the Principle knows every student by name. disruptive behaviors are managed and little evidence of bullying at school. teachers are easy to engage in conversation and are dedicated to their students progression. the students are generally supportive of their classmates and work together. it is a great little school, being Title I there are extra resources. I highly recommend this school.
My son has attended this school since grade 1 and is now in grade 5, and absolutely loves it at Edgewood Highland. The teachers and staff are excellent. Its like a big extended family. All the students look out for each other, and get along. The teachers treat the kids as if they would their own. I am at total peace when my son goes to school. Every school should model themselves after this school.
I have 3 freinds that go to this school and they discribed what it is like because I wanted to know because I live in MA.
The quality of education at this school varies greatly with each teacher.
Edgewood Highlands is a very diverse school, economically, racially and culturally. We have been very please with the academic program; the teachers and administrators have gone above and beyond to meet my sons needs. He is reading well above his grade level and his teachers have been very accommodating, giving him more difficult books and sending him to the higher grade for reading. The parents are very involved, although many work and cannot make it during the school day. Even if they are not there, most are very committed to their child's education. There is an affordable after-school care program, plus art classes sponsored by the PTO taught by a RISD grad. The music and art programs during school are acceptable. The strings teacher is one of the best music teacher in the state.
