This is my son's second year at Edison, he is in 1st grade. We live in the neighborhood so it is convenient, but I am hoping to open enroll him next year at another school hopefully more fitting to our family.

I attended Edison from 2003 to 2007 and I remember having a brilliant time there. The students are friendly and the teachers are very helpful. I found it a shame when I moved away, but fortunately I'm moving back to the area. Only disadvantages are the horrible cafeteria food and the teachers act overly strict

I went to this school when i was in elementary school and it is an amazing school..I really do miss it a lot and i want go back.They are really serious about teaching the students and the teachers are really nice but the staff in the office aren't really the nicest people ever..The only thing is that the school is kind of small.But thats not really a big problem.They also have healthy lunches.I really recomend this school to anyone, i hope this review helped any.Good Luck..:)

Awesome school -- very focused on teaching the whole child - we are extremly pleased -- the principal is smart, very present and accessible, the teachers are motivated -- the principal and teachers seem to work very well together -- my child has excelled and he is not an easy one to engage -- I highly recommend this school - glad we are here.

My daughter attends preschool through the Torrance Tkes program and I think it is fantastic. Very good for prepping kids for school.

My daughter has gone to Edison for 3 years now. She had excellent 2nd and 3rd grade teachers. They both have made her work towards her potential. Her 2nd grade teacher really helped her become more responsible and accountable for her own actions (ie. forgotten homework, papers needing signatures, etc.). Her 1st grad teacher could have been better, though.
