On Day One 
When Edgewood School opened its doors on January 5, 1919, one of its students was a kindergartener named Carl Schorske. Professor Schorske, a historian and Pulitzer Prize author, visited Edgewood for on its 88th anniversary in 2007 and he spoke about his days at Edgewood. He remembered a school surrounded by Russet "rustycoat" apple trees, getting promoted from kindergarten to first grade by Principal Mary Piedalue after singing a German ballad, and recognizing how good teaching and inspired learning can change a life.

Our Walking School Bus
The Walking School Bus is not only a part of the Edgewood School culture, but a reminder that each of us can play a role in keeping our environment and ourselves healthy. This video was originally produced as an audio story, by then 5th grader Owen in the spring of 2008. It was later adapted to its current video format. Play Video
