    I am a parent of Pre-K student I am not satisfied with the teachers they are unfair to some kids.They teach some kids more they trying to teach kids to read who don't even know as many letters as the other kids who are older and have to know more than others also the parents are from different country's and English not their first language and they really needed teachers help.Unfortunately they decide help the other kids. Very unfair.Hopefully we are not gonna be coming to this school!!!

    Love it! My daughter is in 1st grade here and was in Kindergarten at Edison last year. There is no other place I'd rather her be. The people at this school are very caring and concerned about the education and well being of the students. The school itself has a warm feeling from the time you walk in the door as though you've entered home.

    Thomas Edison Elementary is an outstanding school lead by a strong competent principal and very dedicated staff. I have had children in this school since 2004 and I am a member of the PTO. We have a strong Parent Teacher Organization that works alongside the staff to optimize the learning environment. Their are several after school clubs (science math writing) to help children explore areas of interest in more depth. Academics are strong and character is emphasized. I really couldn't be more happy with this school.
