Take the Edgewood Campus Tour
The West Covina Unified School District is committed to providing a safe school environment where all individuals in education are afforded equal access and opportunities. The District’s academic and other educational support programs, services and activities shall be free from discrimination, harassment, intimidation, and bullying of any individual based on the person’s actual race, color, ancestry, national origin, ethnic group identification, age, religion, marital or parental status, physical or mental disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, or gender expression; the perception of one or more of such characteristics; or association with a person or group with one or more of these actual or perceived characteristics. Specifically, state law prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender in enrollment, counseling, and the availability of physical education, athletic activities, and sports. Transgender students shall be permitted to participate in gender-segregated school programs and activities (e.g., athletic teams, sports competitions, and field trips) and to use facilities consistent with their gender identity. The District assures that lack of English language skills will not be a barrier to admission or participation in District programs.
The middle years are time for growth, challenge and discovery as we are an International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme Candidate* School. At Edgewood, we encourage and prepare students to participate fully as International Baccalaureate scholars. Wildcats are engaged in academic activities to become inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk takers, balanced and reflective. Our Wildcats are encouraged to be self-advocates, while creating lasting memories and relationships with peers and staff.
At Edgewood our curriculum and teaching infuse the IB learner profile while students develop strong academic, social and emotional characteristics. These teachings encourage students to become internationally minded, more culturally aware, through the development of a second language and commit to help all members of the school community where all staff are IB staff members, all teachers are IB teachers, all parents are IB parents, all students are IB students, and our community is an IB community. We are all, IB!

A new website started for parents and students (and teachers too). The goal is to link resources that correlate with the lessons that students are learning, so that parents (and students) can get extra explanations of math topics. Links include, Khan Academy Videos to 6th, 7th, 8th and Integrated 1.
