We recently conducted a Communication survey with our parents, staff, middle school and high school students. We appreciated everyone who took the survey and received a lot of great feedback. One of the requests we heard from the survey was the need to share more information about our student's activities, accomplishments, and initiatives. In response to this request, we’ve created our “Edgewood Experience”. We’ll be sharing short videos throughout the spring season, from each of our schools, so you can see what’s going on at Edgewood.
