I was a formal student at this school and i would of say my experence here is ok the school does have anitbullying issues in fact i walked by the other day to see signs of bullying but in my time there bullying wasnt common but it was big enough to become a issue the school has a great technological learning advantage and has good potential in that subject also the school may need to hire a few better teachers there but overall the teachers where great my last teacher in 6th grade mrs. Hakanson was a awesome teacher who did a exelent job and actually loved and cared about the students succes there where many other teachers like that but like always there is the few teachers the students disliked the school does have great advantage in its emergency care the last time i saw it the school has acces to defibulators and emergency first aid i do not know if anybody is currently medically trianed thoughbut overall i found my experience in this school ok on average it has many pros but it has its cons too
I have to say that I have been tremendously disappointed in the education my child has received. She is gifted but we moved from another state and didn't get into the High Ability school, so we were stuck with the neighborhood school. Her teacher, a first year teacher, told us that she could not challenge her because there were kids in her class that were reading on a second grade level and meeting their needs was more important. She has regressed and lost much of her advanced learning from the other state. Talk about No Child Left Behind--miy child's needs are totally being thrown to the wayside. THEN, mid-year, they switch out principals for no good reason. I would look into the Catholic schools if you are looking for a quality education in Sandy!
I am the grandparent of two students who attend Edgemont Elementary School. I am so impressed with the teachers and the education they offer the students. They have so many activies such as talent shows, the Easter Parade, a Choir, etc. The teachers involve parents and interact them often to inform them about progress of their children. Edgemont is an excellent and model school along with the principal and teachers.
Edgemont is a great school. I was worried that my daughter would not get enough attention because she accells in class, but her teacher spent a ton of one-on-one time with her anyway, because she wants her to continue to accell in school. There are a lot of arts at this school as well. There is even a choir.
