Principal's Message

Welcome To Edgewater High School!
"The Pride of College Park and Orlando"

Eagles, our final week leading into Thanksgiving was our best week yet on many fronts.  Students are finding their groove, focusing on their goals and the necessary tasks.  Basketball, soccer and wrestling seasons are in full swing.  Fall sports wound to a close with our mighty Eagles playing a great playoff football game in miserable weather on Friday.  They didn’t outscore the opponent, but the team won in a big way for their coaches and the school through their grit and attitude.  What a great team and an outstanding season for our Eagles!  Congratulations to coach Duke and his players and staff for the successful season … district champions!


Our performing arts teachers have been hard at work all year with our students.  Several students have made all county for Orchestra, guitar, band and chorus.  The final three weeks of semester 1 provide opportunities for you to come and see our students show off their talents.  Mark your calendars for a December 7th chorus concert and December 8th guitar concert.  December 14th will bring all students together for our annual PRISM concert, which will be a treat for all in the community to see.  Please plan to come out and support our student  performers.


As we roll into the Thanksgiving week, I hope you will each take time to rest, recharge, reset and be ready for a final push to the end of semester 1 when we return.  This is the chance to master content and show your teachers what you have learned.  If you are thinking of learning in terms of “doing my work”, I challenge you to shift that to “mastering the standard”.  Every course is measured by mastery of state standards.  The goal is to reach mastery, which requires intentional engagement and timely practice. Dig in and let’s get to the finish line with grit and determination.


Class of 2022 commencement will be at the UCF Addition Arena on May 16th at 7:30 pm.  Please save the date and know that as I receive information about number of guests and other logistics details, I will share them out through social media and Connect Orange.   Seniors who need a concordant score to graduate,  there are two upcoming test dates that you should already be signed up for:  December 4 for SAT and December 11 for ACT.  Make sure you take some time this week to practice with Khan Academy if you are prepping for one of these tests. 


We will run a modified bell schedule for Tuesday, December 7 through Friday, December 10 to accommodate district progress monitoring activities, mock AP exams and common final exams for semester courses.  See below for a snapshot of the daily schedules.  These activities are critical for you to know where you are with each standard you have learned and will guide instruction as we move into semester 2.  Ensure that you are here ON TIME each day and have prepared well for these opportunities.  



We are thankful for you, our faculty, staff, students, parents and community members.  As I sign off for the week and prepare to enjoy time with my family, I wish each of you the very best of holidays.  See you back on November 29th!
