  • If the writing skills of the student who rated EDHS on July 14, 2008, are indicative of this school's English Department, I'd stick to home schooling.

  • The school is pretty big for a high school,but if you think about it, you don't really have to go to every aspect of the place every day so i didn't really experience any trouble after the first few weeks. I met my girlfriend in less than a week...that's how big this place is. I also enjoyed taking Spanish,photography,wood,and also my financial algebra and calculus!I enjoy this school over all the others I've gone to....except markham(located right next to the high-school)
