    "My daughter attend 8 th grade only. Then she moved to other school in Great Chicago area and since then she is whiling to go back to Highland Park Schools. Teachers are very polite. They have a lot of after school activities. Even I emailed a teacher with questions about hw on Saturday evening and I received e-mail from teacher on Sunday morning. PTO is great, working together with parents and school administration to provide extra activities for students. I had experience with schools in Houston, TX, Des Plaines and Buffalo Grove IL. Cannot compere at all. Thank you to all stuff at Edgewood Middle School."

    "The main weakness I saw in this school, which my daughter attended for two years, was the bullying. The students were unusually mean to fellow students. I know of 2 parents who moved their children because of the lack leadership in the school, in regards to the mean character of some students. It is my experience that the parents don't believe their kids could be so mean. Most people in the area are very nice, individually, but collectively they don't include new people in their groups. The children are the same. Except the kids have an air of superiority that is not challenged my teacher, principal or parent. Your child would need a very strong sense of self to be a new student in this school."

    "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."
