    "I am a former student. I remember when I would meet other kids from other schools... They would ask me what school I went to. When my response was "Edgewood," I would always expect a chuckle out of them. People all around Brevard County called Egdewood "the nerd school." Now, as a former Edgewood student/current college student, I laugh at the people who laughed at me. Sure, we are kind of nerdy, but because we are smart? I'm not quite sure how that is something to laugh or poke fun at. Weren't #1 in sports, but we were were the ones who got Merritt Island on the list of the top 50 schools in the nation. The NATION. Some students left Edgewood complaining that the teachers assigned "too much hard work," but right now, as a college student, I could not be more grateful for all of the college prep Edgewood provided me. Too much work? Too hard? Welcome to the real world, which, might I add, is not easy! I'm so glad I didn't go to a school that just let me breeze by my classes. I am proud to say that I went to a "nerd school" because compared to the other student bodies that I graduated with, MY class is excelling in colleges all around the nation. Edgewood is a fantastic school!"

    "Edgewood "edged out" Westshore as the best high school in the Brevard County according to US News for 2014 (6th vs 9th in Florida). You can't go wrong with either of them but I'm really glad our daughter will be attending Edgewood in the fall instead of the one she's zoned for as middle school could be quite tough as she's very shy. I'm glad she's an ideal fit for Edgewood."

    "I loved Edgewood, and I've been there since 7th grade. I am now about to graduate from college and was accepted to Isenberg School of Management at UMass, and I can honestly say that going to Edgewood was an advantage. I currently hold a 3.7 gpa and I owe it all to the extensive preparation and determination of the staff. I breezed though the first two years of college thanks to the coursework we were prepared for. Seriously, if the students and parents would stop complaining about the course load, then take your kid elsewhere because Edgewood prepares you for the REAL WORLD. And when is anything ever easy in the real world?"

    "I am extremely grateful that Edgewood is available to residents of Brevard. I have two students currently attending and am delighted with the education that they are receiving. For all those people who think the curriculum is too rigorous or challenging need to spend some time with our European and Far Eastern counterparts. These expectations would be considered 'the norm'. No wonder the U.S. is falling behind! More schools of choice, like Edgewood, should be available to parents so that the whole lottery system of entry could be avoided. The numbers speak for themselves; multiple applications received every year for every 7th grade place available. Go figure!"

    "My daughter has attended Edgewood since the 7th grade and she is getting ready to graduate this year from high school with her AA degree which was fully paid for by the county. She is fully prepared to attend college and Edgewood was instrumental in that preperation. It is NOT for kids that want to have "fun" in highschool and are overly interested in their social life. It is absolutely the school of "nerds" and they revel in it. The most popular children are the best actors in the drama department and the best students, not the cheerleaders or athletes. All of the classes offered at Edgewood are Honors or AP, there are no easy classes. They do not tolerate bad behavior and they do not hesitate to kick out students that can't maintain at least a C average. It is the perfect school for kids that are high achieving, goal oriented, self-motivated, determined and those who aspire to great educational heights. If they want to be the next footbal phenom, this is not the place for them. I am so grateful to the principle (who was my high school literature teacher at MIHS) for developing this school into what it is today, a school that not only wants nerds for students but caters to them."
