    About Edgewater Public

    Welcome to Edgewater Public School!
     
    Edgewater Public School is an elementary school which serves the northern section of Edgewater. Edgewater is located in the southeast section of Volusia County and is about 60 miles northeast of Orlando. It is a beautiful, historic community with a population of approximately 20,000 residents.
     
    Our school first began to provide quality education to the children of Edgewater in 1879. The first name of our school was Hawk's Park, named after an early settler by the name of Dr. John Milton Hawks who donated one of his winter cottages to serve as a school.
     
    The original school was replaced by a slightly larger one in 1890. This facility burned to the ground in 1912 and was replaced by the block constructed Betsy Ross School. This closed in 1917 and our children went to school in New Smyrna until our current facility was built in 1966. We have sustained on-going additions and improvements ever since.
     
    Edgewater Public, a Title One School, serves kindergarten through fifth grade students. In addition to regular education, students may receive special services in a variety of programs under the umbrella of Exceptional Student Education. Some examples of these programs include speech and language, learning disabilities, Multi-VE, as well as Pre-K special needs.

    Our current enrollment is approximately 570 students with an average class size of 18. We offer special area in music, art and physical education.

    Our staff is excellent. The entire Edgewater staff, teachers, paraprofessionals and support personnel are caring, committed professionals who go the extra mile to help all students succeed. We do believe in our school mission statement: "We envision Edgewater Public School as a nurturing community: a place where the success of each member is dependent on the commitment of all."
