    "Edwards Middle School & STEM Academy is a five star school! As the new administration, we believe we are making decisions every day to ensure students are receiving a quality education in a safe environment. We have an open door policy to students, parents, staff, and the community. We have workshops for teachers and parents to help our students be excel. We post every day on our Facebook page. We provide a fun environment for our students with the help of a 40-member ASB, active PTSA, and our super staff. Half of our staff our club advisors to clubs such as gaming, book, drama, cheerleading, movie making. Every Friday our technology specialist plays music because the students love to dance! We have intramural sports at lunch, such as soccer, flag football, and basketball. There is always something fun going on at Edwards! Last, but definitely not least, is our dedicated staff members. We have an outstanding group of teachers who put in countless hours to ensure the students understand the material. We have special classes that set us apart from our surrounding schools such as AVID, STEM, chorus, guitar, band, and art. Please feel free to contact us to learn more about Edwards."

    "My daughter came from a small elementary school outside if the immediate area. She experienced some bullying at the elementary level but eventually overcame most issues there. When deciding on a middle school, I heard such negative things about Edwards. I, however, had known that Edwards was a good school. My son had graduated from Edwards just a few years before my daughter started attending. As a matter of fact, my son returned to Edwards to work on his Senior project,...which was based on his experience in Mr. Culton's music class. Edwards has helped to nourish my children's minds and hearts. The teachers are supportive. The kids are great. I feel badly for anyone who chooses their children's middle school based on the opinion of those who haven't experienced all that Edwards has to offer. If you are unhappy with your child's middle school, get involved. Keep your tax dollars working in YOUR community!! Thank you Edwards...you have helped me to raise one successful college student and you are currently helping me to raise a daughter who is a hard working leader!"

    "I didn't think Edwards was a great school, and to see that they are just now paying attention to bullying sickens me, the school had a horrible bullying problem while my daughter attended there and they did absolutely nothing about it. I know that disciplining the kids at home is the parents job but we also depend on our kids to be safe with the school staff while at school and to be heard when they are being bullied and not be ignored by the staff,,, as far as the staff, they were just ok and thats not good enough"

    "I have positive comments for the teachers my daughter has had. Many have stayed in at lunch or open their doors in the mornings to help her. The Honors class with Mrs. Herron could compete with schools in better areas. She was hard but wanted good things from my daughter. Her history teacher Mrs Eyeles made learning fun for a kid who hates history. I have negative comments about the office. I feel the principal is more concerned about what looks good. She is hardly ever available to parents. I finally had to threaten to go to the district before she would call me back. The office always seems confused. Like nobody knows what to do."
