  • This school is horrible! It's most of what i can say about it. The staff is not so great and the Teachers are the worst. my child that entered Grade K and i am transferring her to another school Where she can feel better since the teachers are never able to help. i will not mention any names on the teachers but they did do a lot to my daughter. they would not let her go use the restroom or anything. she would get bullied and they would not do anything to fix the issue and if I went directly to the school they would not speak to me or anything. so NO WAY! I would NOT recommend this school for anyone what so ever!

  • My son is currently entering the third grade in Edison School. His experience at Edison is more neutral than anything else. The school is over populated and I don't think there are enough qualified teachers available to accommodate the needs of the students; but under the circumstances(schools' population),the school is not the worst place in the country. There are some extra curricular activities that are offered to those who register on time. The school does have an Olympic size, indoor swimming pool and a decent size playground for the younger students (P-K to 3rd grade)the other students only use it for phys-ed. The school's security is pretty good. Out of the four teachers he's had, only two were highly qualified. So I find it easy to say that you have a 50% chance of getting a fair and thorough education at this school. There have been three different Supervisors in the past four years and I don't know what near future holds for the administration of the school.
