PTSA organized Edgewood's first Walk-A-Thon on October 23, 2012 and it was a great success thanks to all the families and students who participated. This was a great community event that showed how supportive West Covina is of its schools.
Greetings to Edgewood Students, Families, and Community Members,
Thank you for visiting our school's website and taking an interest in Edgewood Middle School. I would also like to extend to you a warm welcome as we begin the 2012-13 school year!
We are very proud of the progress that has been made to improve the academic achievement of all students here at EMS and commend our parents and community members who have supported us in this endeavor. It is our goal to prepare students to not only transition to high school but to equip them with the 21st century learning skills to ensure their success in college and beyond.
