Welcome to Edgewood Schools, The Pride of West Covina. We are proud to provide our students with every opportunity and experience they need to become world-class citizens. As one of the comprehensive high schools of the West Covina Unified School District since 2010, our mission is to graduate students who are ready to compete and succeed in this new, global economy.
Edgewood IB Schools is committed to building a globally aware community of lifelong learners who achieve high academic standards. Edgewood provides a diverse, challenging curriculum that is student-centered and develops inquisitive, knowledgeable, and empathetic students who actively engage in and contribute to their family, community, and the world around them.
Edgewood High School first opened in 1958 as a freshman school, located on the old Covina High School campus. In September of 1959, the new campus, on the corner of Orange and Merced Avenue, opened with ninth, tenth, and eleventh grade students. The Trojan was chosen as the mascot and the school colors were green, gold and white. The first principal was Mr. Roscoe Vaniman and the first graduating class was in 1961. In 1988, West Covina Unified School District merged Edgewood High School and West Covina High School. In 2010 Edgewood High School reopened as an International Baccalaureate school. The new mascot became the Lion and blue and gold were chosen as the new school colors. Today close to 1500 students are enrolled at Edgewood Schools and will continue the legacy of academic, athletic, artistic, and extracurricular excellence.
