My children have been going here for 2 years. Lat year we loved the school, but this year it has been nothing but problem. The Kindergarten teacher the my child has needs to retire! She is very mean to my 6 year old and doesn't watch the children very well. She blames everything on the kids. Maybe she needs to look at who the "teacher" is.

Ms. Taylor is a fantastic 1st grade teacher who teaches children to be responsible and motivated to learn.

Teachers are fantastic with a lot of devotion to the students. Especially Ms. Taylor, a first grade teacher who taught my children to read to an exceptional level considering they couldnt read when they began.

I have two children in this school from Kindergarten to Fifth Grade. The school has some great and caring staff and teachers. The school is full of good kids. The staff and teachers listen and care about their kids. The school really tries to get the whole family involve with Movie Nights, Open Houses, Book Fairs/Reading Nights and so on. Just remember each teacher has certain areas where they shine. Get to know the teachers and then you can know what is best for you child.

I have been favorably impressed with the teaching and support staff at this school. Have already raised six children in schools throughout the country and this school is right up there with the best of them.

there are some great teachers at this school. There is a bit of over population and the teachers have to work with very large numbers of kids.

Edison has outstanding teachers and I have been surprised by the quality of education considering its student ethnic population. The accelerated learning program is outstanding and I know several parents who are absolutely thrilled with it. Parent involvment is a bit lack luster, but seems to be improving.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Arizona used the Arizona Instrument to Measure Standards (AIMS) to test students in reading and mathematics in grades 3 through 8 and 10, writing in grades 5, 6, 7, and 10, and in science in grades 4, 8 and 10. GreatSchools' profiles currently show AIMS mathematics, reading and writing results. 2013 AIMS grade 10 results represent on-track 10th graders for the 2013 test year. AIMS is a standards-based test, which means that it measures how well students have mastered Arizona learning standards. Students must pass the grade 10 AIMS in order to graduate. The goal is for all students to meet or exceed state standards on the test.
