Every teacher my daughter has encountered at EDE has been awesome. They are caring and challenging. Although I haven't had much contact with the administrative team at EDE, the principal certainly seems enthusiastic and positive. But as a teacher myself, I know the teachers are the ones who make the school what it is. I highly recommend EDE to any prospective students!
