  • I graduated from this school in 1962 and it was a great school . When I saw the great change that was going to happen to Miami ,I left with only my fond memories.

  • My dad went here and graduated in 1953. He recalls that it was a "rough" high school, even back in the early 50's. He remembers a rule that students were not to wear jewelry or watches to school, as this invited risk of theft/robbery. He remembers his classmates fondly, however, and enjoyed his years at Edison. He is interested in his upcoming reunion, but has no computer access. I am his daughter, and interested in hearing from anyone who can give more information about a class of 1953 reunion. He'd get a kick out of hearing from anyone who might remember him, as well. (Lisa Barwick-Peterson: [email protected])
