During the time period where the transition of new leadership. It all turned sour. Fighting was on the rise; previously the bathroom was lit on fire. Many fights have occurred between the lower years. Leadership is a bit power-hungry. Mental health is a serious problem; staff is flushed with students facing this type of issue. There are a few good teachers, my co-workers, but the issue is that this school doesn't enhance critical thinking, or personal creativity, ad destroys individual development, as compared to the last higher management that were in power. I was a teacher who worked here previously, but resigned due to the aforementioned reasons. Be very careful if you want to shape you children to actually be talented leaders.
Friendly staff. Teachers are flexible with their teaching style and open to teach more about what you’re passionate about. A downside was the lack of shade environments. The school clearly heard the complaints about it - now we have “fale” and shade spots. The after-school traffic on Edgewater Drive is terrible though (because of construction nearby). Apart from that, the school provides 1:1 devices (and cases) to all students who enrol (because of COVID and online learning). NCEA results are above national level also (which is huge for a level 3 decile school). My time at Edgewater College was great. Highly recommend sending your children here.
Lowkey racist toward white people. Students are openly homophobic and teachers do nothing about either of these issues. Teacher's dont push students enough, instead they give the class more time to hand in work. But in saying that it is a small school so its much easier to get 1 on 1 time woth the teacher and much more support is available for work. But the mental health help at the school is trash. Domt go here
