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.

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.
