    I am currenlty going to Edison as a junior heading into the tail end of second quarter. I must say there are not that many teachers who seem motivated by much. A handful of teachers showed dedication and genuine concern for the students and their well-being. I am not particularly content attending Edison because the school only seems to focus on sports clubs and school spirit. Which I find to be rather annoying and a turn-off cosidering the fact that I pefer artsy oriented curriculum.

    I'm a current student at Edison I graduate year 2010. I'm sick of all the bad things I hear about Edison from people who have never been there. I switched from supposingly one of the best schools you can be in in Minnesota and I absolutely HATED it there and when I switched to Edison I absolutely loved it. There's such diversity and the teachers actually show passion for teaching and they make it interesting to learn. I know Edison may not have the 'best courses' but if you're taking Pre AP or AP classes they have much more to offer you. Some of the students are reckless but then again there's students like that at every school. And if you're son or daughter or even you had a bad time while at Edison they probably got involved with a bad crowd or just didn't join the right areas.

    My son attended this school and it was the worst decision that he made. There was no parent communication and the school does not care if students roam the hallways or anything.

    Edison was a great school. I am currently a college student and I feel that the classes I took at Edison prepared me for college very well. There is a wide selection of music classes from garage band to choir. Art was interesting; I enjoyed my begining sculpture class. Edison is a very diverse setting. The best thing about Edison (for me) was it's Small Learning Community's (SLC's). I was in the Careers in Education and Public Service SLC. I had the opportunity to help a teacher in an Elementary classroom. My experience at Edison has prepared me for a future as a High School Math Teacher which is what I am studying for in college. -Ms. Powell

    When I went to school there I had a lot of teachers who cared. I just graduated from there in June of 2005. Most of the teachers I knew and had cared a lot about the students and where they were going in their future. The extracurricular activities were good. Except for the fact that the girl sports didnt always have the good equipment most of the guy sports had really good equipment. I had a lot of fun with the three sports that I played. I felt safe in the school. I would rate Edison a four out of five for the overall quality. It could have been better.

    This school is by far the worst school any of my children have attended. The school does have programs for children who excel but for the average student there is nothing but apathy. There are some very good teachers at this school but the administration is sorely lacking. The average classroom is filled with disruptive kids.

    I think that the quality of the academic programs are great because some of them are college coursed. Edison Senior has all of the above. They also have plenty of programs that parents are involved in.
