Star 360 Assessment

Edgewood uses results from the Star 360 Assessment as a supplement to the admission application. Several area middle schools offer this standardized test in the fall of 8th grade. Students who take Star 360 through their own school may submit a copy of their scores to EHS Admissions when applying. For students that do not test through their school, Edgewood administers the Star 360 Assessment by appointment. Contact Admissions to sign up for a test date.


Edgewood will consider qualified transfer applicants within the limits of our enrollment and space availability. Mid-semester transfers are not permitted; enrolled transfers must begin school at the start of the first semester. Edgewood only considers transfers for the second semester on a very limited basis and as space allows.

Please note that Edgewood’s semesters run on a different timeline than area public schools:

  • 1st Semester: Mid-August - December
  • 2nd Semester: Early January - May

If transferring between semesters, all first semester coursework must be completed prior to the start of Edgewood’s second semester.
