The teacher are wonderful, although several great ones gone because of various reasons. The principal is often gone from school. I heard she left to go Christmas shopping one day. She caters to the involved parents and those who may sue, but she does little about student safety. Check her parking spot one day. I'll bet it's empty.
The teachers and staff at this school are top notch. Really involved and dedicated PTA and Booster Club.
The teachers at this School are amazing. They are so caring and truly listen to parents and their concerns. The administration makes sure that every student is safe. Everyone works together as a team. Children are the priority at this School. Parents and Teachers are very involved in all School events, activities and Education!
I was very wary of public schools but after a horrible experience with a private school Edison elementary was a welcome surprise. The staff and administration really seem to care about the students. My child never complains about having to go to school and always comes home happy. We like the teachers and once you get your feet wet with the goings on of the school, its a very nice little community.
Wonderful, caring and competent teachers, highly involved parents, a great principal-- with one child already at Edison and another starting next year, we couldn't be happier with this school. There's a real sense of community at Edison, and the children respond to it.
Horribly rude and disrespectful Administrative staff. As a parent you hope for a nurturing and caring environment for your children, not run into people who have an negative attitude.
As a mom of a Kindergartner, it's exciting to start this educational journey at such a great school, with great parent support!
Edison Elementary expects a lot of its students and they learn to deliver! Faculty is very friendly and caring. My daughter is excited to go to school every morning. Lots of homework for the fourth grade, but they are learning responability. Edison is molding bright, enthusiastic leaders for tommorrow. I highly recommend.
They've made my son, who is a Celiac kid, comfy and made sure he's healthy and safe while at school.
All 3 of my children attended Edison and all the teachers were wonderful and I am so happy my grandson is now attending!
A wonderful school with a very caring principal. Extremely involved parents who congregrate before and after school to speak with teachers and each other about how they can enrich the scholastic experience. We really like the schools divided opening giving the teacher the opportunity to teach reading to only 1/2 the class for 45 minutes at a time. The teachers are very accessible and professional and the assemblies are very informative and ecclectic. This is one of Burbank's many gems!
When I think of all of the effort I put into getting my child into Edison, I only have bitter laughter. I've visited inside the campus twice and the office staff completely ignored my presence. The school has what is called a divided opening which is completely inconvenient. Whoever heard of having to bring your child to school at 9pm? Are all of the parents stay-at-home caregivers? The parents of the kindergartners hang out at the kindergarten entrance like gangmembers, blocking the entrance to the kindergartners. The kindergarten program is obviously suited for kids who had stay at home parents who taught them little to nothing. If your child attended any type of preschool program, expect major boredom with the possibility of some loss of skills. I have major regrets of turning down my child's acceptance into an LAUSD magnet school that was also a full-day kindergarten program and had API scores above 800.
Great school, lots of involved parents, Principle okay, most teachers amazing so far. Test scores and school rating have dropped since last year. Needs to be brought up. Other schools in the area, test scores rose. Used to be an 8 with an 822 score now we are a 7 with a 813 score.
My son has been attenting this schoo since K. He will be in 5th grade this coming up school year. We love the school, The teachers and all the staff are caring.The computer lap, field trips,art program and the music class are great addtion.The parents are very involved.I'm glad my son ended up at this school.
My daughter attends Edison and has had a great experience. The staff is caring and her teacher Mrs. Solice is amazing! She has learned so much in a short time. I also like that she will be given 1st grade work in the areas she excels.
My son has gone to edison for two years. He loves it . The teachers really know what they are doing, he has learned alot, and they always have a great curriculum. And kid would be lucky to go to such a great school!
Great addition of arts and music programs to the school by grants and the PTA!
Lots of involved parents, sometimes children of PTA parents are favored, campus security could be better, excellent and experienced teachers.
I think edison parent wise is great. We have some great teachers but some that should hit the road. Principal is nice but maybe should take a better stand on her views and not be pushed around by other parents and or teachers but be in control of her school. Yard duties not be so concerned about running and focus on what is actually going on in the playground. overall clean school a lot of parent involvement great fundraising nice community.
