District Internationally Accredited by AdvancED / NCA Blue Ribbon Exemplary Schools

From the Principal

Dear Parents and Students,

Edwardsburg High School is located in Southwestern Michigan and serves a socio-
economic diverse population of approximately 800 students in grades nine through
twelve. Edwardsburg High School has also received Blue Ribbon recognition by both
the Michigan Department of Education and the United States Department of Education.

We constantly strive to provide our students with both academic and extracurricular
experiences that will maximize their potential as learners and citizens. In addition to
traditional classes, we provide our students with a wide variety of learning opportunities.
These experiences include world languages, business, personal fitness, fine arts, visual
and industrial arts. We have a highly regarded fine arts program which includes Art,
Band, Choir, and Drama experiences that are supported by a state-of-the-art
Performing Arts Center.
 
Thousands of virtual classes are available to our students in our Edwardsburg Early
College. Students may also elect to attend classes for college credit offered at
Southwestern Michigan College, Indiana University-South Bend, or attend classes at
the Berrien County Math-Science Center located at Andrews University. Students
enrolled in Advanced Placement courses earn Advanced Placement Credits. We take
great pride in knowing our graduates are able to further their education at the college
and university level while still enrolled in high school.

Our students can seek career and technical training through programs offered at the
Elkhart Area Career Center and Southwestern Michigan College Academies. We also
provide an Alternative Learning Program for students who require a non-traditional
approach to learning.

Many club and activity opportunities allow students choices, including an athletic
program that provides students the chance to participate in twenty varsity sports. Our
athletic teams consistently win conference and post season championships.

The positive academic and personal development of each student is our top priority.

Some of our educational highlights from the 2020-21 school-year include:
  • 207 Juniors and seniors earned college credit
  • 79% Seniors applied to post-secondary education
  • 27 Students were inducted into the National Honor Society
  • 9 Students named to National Vocational Technical Honor Society
  • 3 Individual State Champions
  • 5 District Team Champions
  • 3 Regional Team Champions
  • Student Council food drive provided enough food to assist 250 families.
 
We thank you for the opportunity to educate your child and look forward to making more
educational highlights during 2021-2022 school year!
 
 
Sincerely,

Ryan Markel
