Review of Edina, Minnesota

Schools and weather
Star Rating - 12/14/2007
Have one child in elementary school - unbelievable standards and available programs. They do have French immersion starting in Kindergarten - seems totally useless to go through all that trouble just to learn a disappearing language (wow, you can order off of the menu without help!) - but the intellectual supersnobs seem to like it. Don't get me wrong though- the school system is absolutely spectacular. I hate winter. Others here seem to like it ("I wish it would snow" - I am like, "WHAT?!"). I think it gets too cold here to enjoy winter activities - too cold to skate, sled, can't build a snowman cause the snow doesn't pack. I feel forced indoors, which with little kids can drive up your blood pressure.
