Edgewood High School

The best way to learn about Edgewood High School is by visiting! Attend an Open House event or tour the school. Both are great ways to learn more about Edgewood.

Length: Approx. 75 minutes

Shadow Day Program

Shadowing is not a mandatory part of the application process, but it is a great opportunity to learn about our community! Your 8, 9 or 10th grade student will go to classes, walk the halls, hear from teachers and get a sense of the social life at EHS by spending the day shadowing a current student. Each shadow will be matched with a student ambassador in the grade they will be entering at the start of school.  We match students with similar co-curricular interests, academics, and/or same middle school. Our community strives to make all guests feel comfortable and shadowing is a common experience here.  Shadowing is not a mandatory part of the application process, but it is a great opportunity to learn about our community!

When: Scheduled most Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays between the last week of September and the first week of May.
Time: 7:40 a.m. -  3:30 p.m. (see extended schedule below)
Sign-up: Opens August 21
