I am thrilled to be part of the Saint Edward’s family!” Saint Edward’s School, known for its small class sizes, superlative faculty, and high academic standards, begins a signature year with the opening of school August 25, 2010. Educating approximately 530 students on one campus is an important component of Saint Edward’s strategic plan and heralds the rapid-fire forward progress the School is experiencing.
