September 2004 this will be our second year at Edison. Our daughter is an 8th grader attending excellerated classes and doing very well. The principal and staff are VERY interested in seeing ALL of their students succeed. Some teachers allow students in as early as 7 30 am to get help and finish homework. There is also time after school. Parents also have the options to e-mail questions to teachers in the district. With any school there are always a few bad apples but staff as a whole is truly a TEAM. Even when the issues are social there is exceptionally competent staff to assist students give parents guidance and track them as they progress through the year. This past year the staff worked hard to 'get themselves off the 'watch list' they were NEVER suppose to be on. Edison came out on top because they have such a caring staff.
