In 2010, the Edwardsville CUSD 7 spent $9,023 per student. In 2010 the district spent 54% on instruction, 42% on support services, and 4% on other services.
While many of the teachers here are fanatastic, the climate of fear and intimidation created by the administration is horrific! The fear squashes the creativity and passion out of even the most dedicated of staff.
The lack of equality due to nepotism of certain people's children is shameful. I quit teaching high school because of the work environment in favor of teaching college full time. I couldn't stomach the unsupportive administration and the crazy and insulting parents any more.
The test scores are high because the district "cures" students with IEPs and removes their IEPs (shameful). This tactic worked for several years until the testing percentages got too high, which is why EHS did not make AYP for the last three years.
Funding is completely misguided as well. They returf the football field every year ($200,000), but most departments didn't have enough books. The ones they did have were old and falling apart. I would never put my kids through the Edwardsville School District.
Are you kidding, it's horrible, it's public for goodness sake! they lie on tests to get money and watch all these stepfordwives walking around..hehehehee. This community sweeps all the issues under a rug, drugs especially. They should take action and make... manditory drug testing. it's a joke

Stay away especially if your child does not play BIG TIME sports
I love this school! i wish i could have gone there when i was young. im am difenrly sending my kids here. the teachers are amzaing and the students as well.
I find this High School to be Very Enlightening. The Student Teacher Ratio, is much Greater than here on the East Coast. The Academics that are offered, are tremendous, as are the Students. Congratulations on a Score of 10. This goes to Great Teaching, Discipline, and Awareness, of Students Needs and Interest. If, only more High Schools could Learn From You, this Country would be Wiser, Less Drop-Outs, as Well, As The Much Needed Better Education. Great Job, Edwardsville High School. I was extremely Impressed with The Sports, Drama Classes, and Helping the Community. Kudos, To The Parents As Well. Keep Up The Good Work.
The kids are elitist...and the teachers are completely inept at teaching anyone with a learning disability. My grand-daughter has had nothing but trouble in this school, after having much help and good results in Lincoln Middle School. Very disappointed.
