  • I was one of the first graduates of the "new" Edison school on Santa Monica. I was in the class that completed all three years of high school (school was 10-12 when it was first built, graduating in 1962 with a whopping 525 graduates (I think that is right) and that was a lot for those days. This time was the best of my young life at the time, I then went to Mary Hardin Baylor on a 4 year scholarship. The teachers were great and very helpful to all of us. I miss the innocence of that era.

  • i am a student at edison and i really enjoy being here! our medical program is top knotch, you won't find a better high scool medical magnet in all of texas! our athletes take great pride in their games, practice and selves. in band we're practicxally FAMILY, and everyone is very friendly and inviting. as a freshman, when i first went to band camp i was afraid they would belittle me or treat me as a newbie, not a felllow bandmate, but boy was i wrong! i was taken under the wings of some really friendly upperclsassen. in a way, upperclassmen are like big brothers and sisters who show you the ropes and freshmen the younger siblings. well either way, im happy i made the decision to go there and im sure other future students will be too! :)

  • As a former student, I don not regret going to Edison. The teachers are willing to help any student graduate and proceed to the next level of education. There is not one person staffed that does not care about the well being of the students. If anything some of the teachers and coaches care to much. The athletic program is the schools pride and joy, sending student athletes on th the next level of competition. The coaches are very well prepared for any challenges handed to them to turn a decent athlete to a great person. Final word going to the number of students Edison sends to a prestigious University every year. The number of graduation seniors that attend college or a university is one of the highest in the city of San Antonio.
