A Note from Our Superintendent of Schools (2019-2020)
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! The past year will be hard to improve upon – 2018 National Blue Ribbon recognition, MHSAA Division 4 Football State Championship, and celebrated Shrek The Musical! performance – but, I have faith in our hard working students, dedicated colleagues, and committed community members of Edwardsburg Public Schools to draft a new and equally special blueprint for this year. As Walt Disney said, “We keep moving forward, opening new doors and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keep leading us down new paths.” The door to the future begins at Edwardsburg Public Schools.
At Edwardsburg Public Schools, we remain committed to providing educational excellence to all of our students. Our district continues to expand instructional offerings for students. It would be difficult to find another district in Southwest Michigan that provides a greater variety of educational opportunities than Edwardsburg Public Schools. Instructional programs offered by the district at the elementary level include Gender Specific, Multi-Age, Looping, All-Day Kindergarten, as well as the Great Start Readiness Program offered through Lewis Cass ISD. At the secondary level, the district provides Dual-Enrollment through Southwestern Michigan College and Indiana University of South Bend, Berrien Math and Science Center at Andrews University, Middle College options with the potential to earn an Associate’s degree, Early College Online classes, Advanced Placement classes, and the Elkhart Career Center. Students have access to dedicated and highly qualified, instructional staff; all of which makes Edwardsburg Public Schools the district of choice in Southwestern Michigan.
Edwardsburg Public Schools has earned International Accreditation through the AdvancED Accreditation Commission and School Improvement. All of our buildings have received Blue Ribbon recognition by the Michigan Department of Education – Eagle Lake Elementary is a 2018 National Blue Ribbon Award recipient – and Edwardsburg High School is a five year Bronze Award recipient for Best High Schools by US News and World Report.
Edwardsburg Public Schools is fortunate to have a strong base of support from the community, parents, businesses, faith based groups and civic organizations, who devote time, talent, and resources to ensure that our students have an excellent educational experience.
At Edwardsburg Public Schools, we are committed to the success of every child, every day. We believe, as Benjamin Franklin said, “The doors of wisdom are never shut.”
