    "As with all of my experiences at Highland Park schools, my experience here was unpleasant and marked by ostracism, inept administrators, lack of compassion or protection from bullying, and mixed academics (at best). None of the so-called "disability services" staff and faculty understood the needs of different learning disabilities, nor do they seek to. They are glorified babysitters and during my required "study skills" class that I was required to take due to my ADD diagnosis, I spent the majority of the time teaching math to my struggling classmates and the teacher. I had a few very good and encouraging teachers, but almost all of them retired from the system and were very bitter about the state of the school. I was not provided useful help with schoolwork in the special education class I was forced to take, but was denied access to advanced classes on the grounds that I could not handle them intellectually, due to my disability, despite having some of the highest test scores in the district. I saw bullying ignored, those who complained were either pressured into silence or punished academically if they spoke out. The school seems lovely on the surface, but is rotten at the core"

    "My child was a student at Edgewood and it was a very mixed experience. My child is both gifted and has a learning disability (expressive language). Unfortunately neither the mainstream nor the special education teachers understand the problem or how to teach alternative learning/coping skills. As one reviewer said Edgewood can be very difficult school socially. To couple that with a few teachers who attempt to shame a student into learning, being organized etc is an outright travesty. There are both good and bad things that happen at any school. Hopefully in the years that have passed since our experience at Edgewood the casemanagers have become both more educated and more strength based. Hopefully they now help mainstream teachers understand why a bright, verbal kid could have great difficulty writing a paper; and after being shamed and berated, would stop trying. Perhaps watching "Fat City" would be a good start. To the wonderful and encouraging teachers I say thank you!! To the others, remember, we parents hand you our most precious commodity - our children. Please treat them as your own and handle with care."

    "I went to school at Edgewood and so did my siblings. It was excellent and it fully prepared us for high school and college. Academics were way ahead at Edgewood and allowed me to start more advanced courses in high school. Great teachers."

    "I loved going to Edgewood! This is currently my 2nd year there. Although a bit cliquey, I love the students. The staff is outstanding! They have a lot of advanced classes tailored to your needs. I am in advanced English and the highest math class. Apparently, I am learning freshman year high school material. This is an advanced and great school!"

    "Ok, so I moved to Illinois this year, and the school acdemically is great! socially terrible. I was one of the WORST schools i have been to, and I move a lot. The school hides all the things so it would be called " the best middle school in the district". But really it's not. There is many name calling, rasicm, and bullying throgh out the school. All I have to say is parents check on your kids at the school. The prinicpal doesnt care about the kids they just care about being naames he best schools..they just care about themselves. so if anything I mean ANYTHING happens to your child and the prinicpal doesn't do anything (which they probably wont) go to the BOARD. I would not recommend this school."
