Avoid Edgerton if you can! Test scores keep dropping. Student Enrollment is very close to 800 and rising! The PTA here is ruled with a crazy stick, completely nuts. Teachers and the PTA have blinders on to the fact that our child’s education needs are not being met. Teachers leave faster than students at end of day. PTA spends all their money; which is a lot, on events. They have an event at least once a month if not more. In 3 yrs. PTA gave $13,000 to education and $179,000 to a their lavish events budget. The PTA women are stuck up, run it all, and very close minded. They like to say 'if it's not broke don't fix it'. Well honey, it's been broke for a long time and only a miracle can fix it.
