At first i heard all these rumors that Edgewood is such a bad school, now that i go to Edgewood (all three years in the middle school; and will be graduating from Edgewood High) I haven't been happier. I have many friends who go to Havre De Grace, Aberdeen, C Milton Wright, and Joppatowne. The stories that i hear about those schools from my friends makes me think And they call 'Edgewood', bad?. Anyways, I would be honored to say that Edgewood has an amazing record when it comes to the Arts. Edgewood's students are very talented when it comes to the Arts industry. Dancing, Singing, Acting, and Art in general is something that Edgewood takes pride in holding. Im a proud student of Edgewood High School.
