    Our daughter is in 6th grade at Edison and has enjoyed every minute of it. Middle school can be a miserable place and we are so relieved about how comfortable she is and how much fun she's having. In addition to the solid education offered Edison has excellent band and sports programs. They are also the only middle school in town with recess which is fantastic for kids this age.

    Edison has been a wonderful experience for my daughter and our family. We were nervous going in as a new 6th grade parent but after she became involved in athletics band and made great friends we love it! There are always improvements to be made at the middle school level; however the administration is always willing to listen to the parents and students when they have questions or concerns. Teachers have been responsive when I have contacted them and overall I feel like my daughter is learning. I am in the building quite a bit and when I go in the hallways are quiet and students are in their classrooms learning. I always used to think that the middle school transition was going to be difficult for my daughter but that has not been the case. We love Edison!

    Edison is doing amazing things with severely limited facilities and modest resources. I am continually impressed with the quality of the band program. The science team is doing very well with their Science Olympiad competitors. The "no-cut" cross-country sports program is a huge benefit in keeping these kids fit and healthy.

    Bad management bad funding and bad school district. Some of the teachers are really cool however.

    I went to Edison Middle School 6-8 grade. It is an amazing school though some of the teachers may come off rude its all because they want to help you. I really loved this school and I learned so much sometimes I wish I could just go back! -- SIgned student
