  • I CHOSE Edgewood High school OVER Aberdeen High school.

    Why? Well, I feel Aberdeen High is full of drama and more students too worried about (...) and drugs. The press Edgewood High School gets is disgusting. Yes there are fights, there are fights at every school in this county (gasp, believe it or not.)

    I hear worse from other schools and it makes me question why people think EHS is a bad school. We now have a brand new building that is beautiful and we have a new student run group (that started last year) that focuses on EVERYONE.

    I personally feel most of the students are good kids, and it's all about who a student chooses to associate themselves with as is any other school. Parents of kids at other schools have boasted on how their schools (like north harford, cmw.etc) are known for drugs and this and that, and they also question what makes ehs bad. I never have an explanation for them on that.


    The teachers are great and the principal is funny and cool, unless you're on her bad side, and that's the way it's suppose to be.

  • i am a 7th grader at edgewood middle school and i have not had any problems with this school . the teachers in most cases are great and are definatly not afraid to correct the students. i think the people who do not like edgewood middle school are rasict and tehy are letting there opinions get in the way of education. i am in the highest honors classes and always have been through my schooling career. so when i say that edgewood middle school is not a bad school please, please believe me. at this school everyone is accepted. white or black, yellow or blue. skater or music junkie. punk or nerd. everyone gets along. and i am pretty sure that is the most important thing. I have not met one student yet that doesnt like edgewood middle school. Please, give edgewood middle school a chance. in the past years yes we have had fights and bad test scores. but now that we have a new wonder princable WITH HIS DOCROTATE IN TEACHING our test scores are one of the highest in harford county and we have about as much violence and fights as patterson mille middle/hish schoool. So, I am a student at edgewood middle school and I can prodly say i am a ram!

  • why do some of a few of the bad reviews have a full 5 apples rating when surely they meant to give a poor one? that needs to corrected.

    i only attended edgewood high school one academic year (my senior year) from 2006-2007. it is true that the building had leaks from the ceiling and trash cans were scattered to catch the water. according to the reviewer "Parent/Guardian on March 27, 2010", the building was renovated so perhaps its not an issue any longer? nonetheless, renovations to the building probably didn't fix the problems within the student body.

    most of the teachers are rather cold, but most likely due to the violence and disrespect they deal with.

    during my one year at this high school, AT LEAST one fight broke out per week; more often than not, multiple fights occurred per week. strangely enough, the majority of the fights were exclusively female participants. one instance, a fight (two females) took place immediately in front of me in the cafeteria during lunch. it was initiated when one of the girls took off her stiletto shoe, stood on top of the cafeteria table, and proceeded to bash the opposing girl in the head with it. it was so severe that in the end, school security officers had to pin each girl, both flailing their limbs fighting, and handcuff both on the ground.

    another serious incident took place when a rather large group of girls were fighting and one brought a razor blade into the school with intentions of using it as a weapon (she was expelled i believe).

    so in conclusion, this relatively serious problem stems from the students themselves. there is a generous amount of income restricted and welfare funded apartments in the area with the majority falling in the edgewood district (versus joppatown district). its a somewhat impossible dilemma to cure, but it doesn't change the fact that it IS a dangerous, unhealthy, and distracting place for adolescent students to spend their compulsory educational careers.

  • I am a Sophmore at Edgewood, and I can honestly say that I don't like this school, nor will I ever reccommend it to anyone unless they were truly despreate and too poor to afford a town with any school better. This school is, in fact, poor, and it is true, that it leaks when it rains. Faculty have had to set up trash cans and buckets to collect the rain drops, and often times, I'll come to class to a wet desk that I'd have to clean up, and my request will be denied when I ask for a seat change. And, in 2007, a pipe in the lunchroom broke, and students were forced to eat in the gym for 2.5 weeks. Alongside it being poor, it is violent. I've seen students provoke each other and start a fight over reasons like, "I don't like the way he spoke to me." Again, I do not recommend going to this school, unless, as I've said, you're truly desperate.
