  • The principal (Mr. Potter) is excellent. He knows all his students and their parents on a first name basis. He's always willing to help with anything you may have a problem with. For instance he was very willing to let my daughter stay in her 3rd floor classroom to eat lunch while her foot was broke and she was on crutches. They arranged her classroom for her comfort while she had this problem. I love this school and regret the fact that she will be going to middle school next year. I will miss Edison Elementary.
