Edison is under reconstruction in my opinion and it seems this principal is much better than the previous one but the middle school leaves a lot to be desired. It consists of young adolescent teachers who treat their students like peers. They need to grow up. If we parents complained to the district about half the things our kuds come home and tells us, they would be out of jobs. They continuously show favoritism and some students have even bragged to their friends that they can't get in trouble because their families are friends with the teachers outside of school. This is a school that has their middle school students exesize (P.E) in the MPR room on days when it rains. That is disgusting, filthy and unhygenic. This is the same room where food is prepared and students eat. I'm surprised the principal allows this, it's got to be a health code violation. Atleast this principal seems to care.
I believe Edison Academy is an exceptionally amazing school. I myself, as a student, have first hand knowledge of what really goes on. Our principal is an amazing principal. Our teachers are outstanding. Everyday I am exposed to Edison's middle school program. Not once have I noticed favouritism or unfair treatment to students. The teachers are also there for us when we need them. They stop the spread of rumors. They check up on us to see if we are okay. They generally care for us, and I wouldn't have it any other way. As for the student government issue, the one female never gave her application to the teacher, let alone did she print it. She relied on technology the night before it was due. We used the method of our teachers selecting students because the campaign was way too chaotic, and constructed no order. Additionally, the students running for these positions did not put their names. Instead, they wrote a number code that only they knew. It just so happened that the same team was picked. Nobody was aware it was the same girls until after they announced the numbers. These girls deserved the positions too. Last year, I watched them not be able to do anything because "they had a tittle". But in fact, they were never recognized and put to the side,, but they ended up doing all the work. The amount of order was very low, but this year they can make a change and fix the mistakes. I know they have the power to influence and achieve greatness for our school. -Edison Academy 8th Grader
If there were true compassion, the student who was not able to run for office would have been given an opportunity to do so had the teacher who lost her form in the first place, actually had an election. In stead he creates a position to pacify her.
