Editor: Edgewood High School is Awesome! I read with great interest Bryna Zumer's article in the Friday, Aug. 23, edition of The Aegis in which Mr. Llewellyn, an art teacher new to Edgewood High School states that he was very surprised at the order and fine learning environment that he found upon his arrival. In September 1956, I arrived at Edgewood High School to teach English and found the very same environment as Mr. Llewellyn. A few years later, I was appointed Assistant Principal and later opened the newly-constructed Edgewood Middle School as its first principal where I remained for 20 years.

Editorial from The Aegis | August 27, 2013
The thing about reputations, good or bad, is they often aren't all that accurate. From a reputation perspective in Harford County, Edgewood High and Fallston High are on opposite ends of a spectrum. In reality, they're both fine schools with high-achieving students, and they both have their problems. It, therefore, comes as no particular surprise that a gathering of Edgewood High students and graduates would spend some of the precious few days of summer vacation assembling a mural at the school.

Area high school math students applied their recently learned skills today while getting a taste of military life courtesy of Maryland Army National Guard Soldiers from the 29th Combat Aviation Brigade and the 1st Battalion, 175th Infantry Regiment. Ho Chang, a mathematics teacher at Edgewood High School and a former Army air defense artillery officer, brought 60 of his juniors and seniors out to Lauderick Creek Training Site and the nearby Edgewood Area of Aberdeen Proving Ground to examine vehicle displays of trucks and helicopters and participate in a land navigation course, seeing first-hand how math permeates all aspects of even military life.
