‘Edgewater College is successful in achieving increasingly excellent outcomes for students.’

'Students and staff benefit from the school’s close association and effective partnership with Te Tahawai marae. The marae provides a learning environment where te reo and tikanga Māori affirm the language culture and identity of akonga Māori. It also contributes to schoolwide understandings of te ao Māori and the bicultural heritage of Aotearoa New Zealand.'

'For sustained improvement and future learner success, the school can draw on existing strengths in:
- the collaborative improvement-focused work of the board and school leaders that supports school development
- the strong leadership focus on providing a learning environment that engages students in learning
- well-developed pastoral and learning support networks that support students’ wellbeing and learning
