Edwardsville High School

Vision/Mission Statement and Goals

The goal of Edwardsville High School is to meet the educational needs of its students. These needs include college-bound instruction, specialization skills, personal enjoyment, vocational training, physical development, and citizenship preparedness. These needs reflect the personal aspect and uniqueness of each individual.

Edwardsville High School provides curricular and extracurricular activities to meet these needs. These needs should be provided for in a safe, orderly environment by a variety of offerings and activities; by striving for excellence; by an opportunity for achievement; and by a continuous improvement in equipment, materials, facilities, instruction, and leadership. Instructional staff and support staff strive to design and implement these activities. Edwardsville High School is continually evaluated so that it prepares for the future through input from students, teachers, administrators, the Board of Education, parents, community leaders, employers, and consultants.
