Principal's Message

Welcome To Edgewater High School!

Good enough is not good enough. It’s our theme for this year. We can not operate with a finite mentality—the idea that there is an end; a finish line to progress. If we want our students to push forward and continue to evolve and mature, it’s necessary for us to look beyond dates and deadlines and get them to start thinking bigger picture. 
I’ve been a dad for 9 years and a principal for 13 years. I have yet to feel as though I have “arrived” at either responsibility. I use her birthdays and the conclusion of school years as mile markers but not finish lines. They are opportunities to improve. Because I don’t want to be a “good enough” parent or a “good enough” principal. And I hope our students never settle for “good enough” either.

Scoir Training for Parents 
Parents, we are introducing a new college search platform called Scoir (pronounced Score)Scoir will be replacing our old system Naviance and is designed to break down the college admissions process into manageable steps that will help students evaluate all the important college admissions questions one step at a time. Scoir will provide students, parents, counselors, and colleges a dynamic platform to focus on matching postsecondary institutions with student goals and interests.  We would like to invite you to participate in a parent training on this platform which will be provided via WebEX.  Links to participate in the Parent WebEx will be included.  The trainings are scheduled three separate times.  These are September 25 from 12-1pm, September 28 from 7-8pm and September 29 from 7-8pm
