    "I can't say enough good things about Edison Park Elementary school, it is a great school. It's our 4th year at the school. We have two kids, they love it!!! The principal, the teacher............all of them are amazing with excellent Acadamics. We are very lucky to have Edison Park as our kids school."

    "I'm going to guess that any negative reviews come from parents who have spent little time in EPE. The dedication to academics, personal development and independent thought are incredible. My son is a first grader, who is reading light years above his level, thanks to an incredible kindergarten teacher, and a first grade teacher who has challenged him daily. He is happy to go to school every day, and I feel safe and comfortable with the high-quality staff that surrounds him."

    "I am a current student at Edison, and let me say it is a GREAT School. Great Academics, great teachers, and great students. There's not really any bullying in the Middle School, but I can't say much for the Elementary school classes. The Academics are challenging and engaging, there's a plethora of extracurricular activities like Student Council, Sci Fi club, and Environmental groups. The principal is amazing, and the field trips are amazing and educational."

    "Unbelievably impressed so far. I have 2 children at Edison and feel very lucky we live in this neighborhood and can send them there. Both my wife and I are products of suburban schools in towns with excellent schools and I can say with absolute certainty the curriculum my children are receiving is ahead of what I learned in their grades. Staff across the board is superior and there couldn't be a more committed principal than Mr. Z. My only complaints are class sizes and with the parents who in some of the negative notes below are most likely the ones who never partipate in making the school even better"

    "To help readers filter my review let me say my children have only been at the school for 2 years. Also, I want to add that my only other experience w/ schools are Oriole Park Elementary & the private school education my wife & I have had. Excuse my grammar as I had to play w/ words for my review to fit. Teachers: acceptable. Principal leadership: good. Parent involvement: excellent! The staff is nice & friendly w/ the exception of one staff member who always lacks professional manners. She is always rude & has a bothered look on her face as if she doesn't want to help. The security is by far the worst thing in the school. Anyone can get in at anytime and do whatever they want. They only have one, 60-ish person at the man entrance in plain clothes. After school people come in & out of all doors w/out being challenged. I always worry about the safety of my kids. I understand money is an issue, but good security doesn't cost much if you know what to do & Edison Park doesn't have a clue. I've never been a fan of 5 star ratings. I give the school a 7.5 out of 10. I think the school has a great rating because the people rating don't have anything better to compare it to."
