We were not happy with Computech. The principal left early this fall and the school was left with an inexperienced vice principal. There was a lot of chaos and lack of leadership. Some of the classes seemed as though they were hard just to be hard, without the creativity in curriculum we had come to enjoy from Manchester. Just piling on the homework doesn't necessarily teach children, especially gifted children, anything. If I could make a choice again, I would not choose this school.

I am an eighth grader at Computech and the program there is great. Most people think that since Computech has only smart kids, and they have bad sports. This is wrong. This year in cross county we continued to keep holding first place out of all the teams. The cross country team went to LA and raced in the worlds biggest middle school cross country meet, Mount SAC, and placed second in eight grade boys, seventh grade boys and girls. We are not only champions in cross country but also in track, volleyball, baseball, football, soccer and water polo. Computech is also the very best in music. I'm in the advanced band for the second year at Computech and it is so much fun playing in parades and getting a 1 (the highest score) when being tested at Washington Union High School. I would recommend this school to everyone and I will 100% guarantee that if you attend this school you will love coming to school every day.

This is the best school ever!!! I went there for 7th and 8th grade, and everything is great. There's not as many students as other middle schools and there are a lot of smart and great students. There weren't that much drama as others either.There's no fights last year or this year at all so I'm pretty sure that there will not be any anymore, which is good because I hate schools with dramas and bullies. This is the best school in Fresno, great teachers, great students!

This is a great school if your child is gifted or high achieving if only because your child is surrounded by like-minded curious students. The uniform policy focuses students on why they are there -- to learn! As the parent of three GATE students, the other two being older, I can say this school is a dream!

Edison Computech is a fantastic school. Every teacher goes above and beyond their job description to do what's best for each and every individual student. Students are there for a great education and they all get one, the academics at Edison Computech are probably the best I have seen so far. There has never been an incident where anyone has regretted chossing this school over another. And the uniform helps the students with time management in the morning, and helps keep away the distraction of 'what's hot'. Many people don't like the uniform, which includes me, but I believe that that the uniform was practical. All of the teachers are very fun to be around, and the Principle and VP are always there to help solve behavior problems, or deal with complaints. My time here has been amazing and I know that my time there has prepared me for the future.

Computech is a great school. All the teachers go above-and-beyond for there students. The principal is wonderful too. Computech has great sports teams and extra-curricular, they are also very focused on accidemics. Computech weren't the best years in my life, but I do not blame the school I blame it on the fact that it is middle school it is never a good time. If Edison Computech is one of your opinions go with it!

You really have to like history, computers, and getting involved to like it here. I don't know if I really want to go there anymore. The teachers are really nice and funny, but it takes a lot of work and working with comuters, like appleworks draw, keynote, and wordprocessing. The comuters are all Macs, and in the library, we just got brand new computers in Dec. 2007. The classroom computers are 2000-2004 Macs, and the computer lab computers are eMacs. There are 23 levels of computing classes, and it is requred to take them each year. There is core, which think is really boring, a.k.a. Academic Block where you're in there for 2/8 periods of the day, with the same students, and the same teacher, and a teachers' aid. The class is required for everyone, and you learn about History and Language.

Computech is a superlative public magnet school for math, computer science and science, also with strong liberal arts and PE. Solid to stellar teachers in virtually every area. (Choir, drama and journalism are weak alas at this time.) Excellent, responsive administration. We have two children there with 4.0 GPAs, who are passionate about their studies and inspired and challenged by their teachers. Parent involvement is a challenge as students come by bus from all over our very large school district, but there is HIGH appreciation of the school in most families and willingness to support and attend school events in the evenings. Faculty and administration are very alert and responsive to the needs of gifted (but never angelic!) students. Trust level very high. Computech's ethnic and economic diversity is a cross section of the district's overall, and there are many cross-cultural/cross-racial friendships among the students. Public education works at Computech!

I attended middle school at Edison Computech, now years later and in College. I have come to realize that the skills that I learned at Computech are far more important and applied so much more to my college work than those that I have learned in Highschool. The homework, the lectures, the small classrooms, and the teacher studen contact that this school offers is wonderful. I can honestly say that this magnet school definately prepares you for college. The expectations from your work and studying habits are very much like those in college. Once graduated from this school your left with an intense satisfaction and an overal immense sense of achievment and knowledge. I loved this school! This school has a great curricular and after attendance the college transisition is a piece of cake.
