    "Do not waste your money, not a college prep HS at all, there is no kindness, helpfulness at all to ensure this children are getting the proper tools for college. If your on the athletic program you can cheat your way thru- have seen it - there is bullying by kids, teachers , and office workers , they needs classes themselves on how to talk to people . Instead of worrying about a child's grades they are worried if they have a belt on or their shirt is tucked in . Kids have not graduated from there ( finding out a few days before graduation) because teachers and staff are unconcerned they just want your money . I as a parent wouldn't stand teachers not helping my child and called the teacher and told them about it -that's their job there is less than 400 kids total and they are most unconcerned about kids that go there I would have gotten more out of a public school. Teachers swearing at the kids =very inappropriate - ! Just a shame that kids can't get into college because of the inadequate teaching -my child learned Spanish from a tape recorder!!! The teacher that was teaching the class was not a Spanish teacher ! Do not waste your money !"

    "We, had two kids at St Edward HS. One a basketball star, was shown a little to much kindness; And dropped out with a fifth grade reading level, thank you St. Eds Tuition well spent. The Second, Is Graduating today. His whole HS time was spent on accedemic probation, we were told at a meeting before enrolment that he would get the extra help he needed. Well that never happened. He did make it to graduation by the skin of his teeth, so he will be able to attend the college of his choosing, however the list of community colleges is short. NO HELP, NO EXTRA ACTIVITIES, NO NICE MEMORIES, GREAT SCHOOL!!!! I WOULD SUGGEST THIS SCOOL TO NO ONE!!!!!! IT IS A TRAP, ALL BROKEN PROMICES. THOUSANDS OUT THE WINDOW. PS the kid that graduated today is a good kid. He just strugled and they did not provide the little extra help he needed."

    "The teachers are very dedicated to teaching and helping students. There is great communication and feedback with the teachers. The school is wonderful at communicating with the parents and students. Any issues that have come up were addressed quickly and fairly. My son is happy to go here. The parents work hard and the school staff works with them to make the school a Family. There is a wonderful sports program also. The school tries to meet the needs of all the kids, regardless of interests. They are continually is upgrading programs/classes to stay current, provide new opportunities and educate the students."

    "I have had two children attend St. Edward; one graduated in 2004 and the other is currently enrolled. I find the teachers very dedicated and qualified, the students respectful, and the parents involved. These are key ingredients that make a school work successfully. One comment mentioned no AP classes as of 2004. Despite that fact, my son who graduated in 2004 placed out of 3 college courses. Presently there are AP classes at St. Edward as well as extra academic support for students that may struggle to keep up with the curriculum. Though the facility is not fancy, the administration is constantly working toward its improvement as well as advancing the use of technology in the school."

    "The quality of the education is very high at St. Edwards. The facility is lacking, but pretty classrooms and swimming pools don't help gpa's and ACT scores. My child has highly experienced teachers and is going to be ready for college when he graduates."
