    Outstanding environment and support for all. Its like a suburban school in the inner city of Philadelphia.

    My daughter was at Edison for two years. This school is pretty bad from many perspectives. The principal is very hard to reach and he has his office staff support this. She learned absolutely nothing at this school and my daughter came from a private boarding school.

    As a graduate of Edison I am now atteding college this school provided me with little to no writting skills or academic support that is needed to enter a unversity.
