Principal's Message

Welcome To Edgewater High School!

The week before the first day of school is a perfect time to do some short range and long range planning with your student. Whether your student is in [email protected] or Face-to-Face, the goals and outcomes for the first nine weeks should be the same—acclimation, organization, establishing routine, and success. 

While we strive to achieve these goals in smaller increments through the first nine weeks, these are still long term. We seek to duplicate success and we seek to adjust when we fall short of it. But the journey is interdependent. I cannot claim success as a principal with achieving these things if not for my reliance on you and your child, our teachers and their teams, the support of our community, and the support of our school district. Absent any of those pieces, these goals aren’t achieved.

Come Monday, the pieces start to fit together to achieve the goals we are setting for this year. We can build on our success last year—a record graduation rate, an 18 point increase in acceleration rate and a 14 point increase in our Advanced Placement scores. But we won’t rest on our laurels. It’s a new year, new opportunity, and for every student, a fresh start and a chance to grow in to the best version of you!
