Unfortunately, Edison doesn't live up to the hype. The teachers are overwhelmed and overworked, so children who need the slightest extra support are left behind. I highly recommend that parents observe several classes at Edison -- and research and visit the other schools in the area before settling for Edison. From office management to classroom lesson plans, Edison also seems to be quite disorganized. The staff throughout the building clearly needs additional human and technological resources.
This is a good local school for the Highlands/Berkely area's children. The school is in a Harry Potter-esque building, surrounded by a beautiful campus that includes a new 'Shakespeare Garden' and playground, a large soccer field, and hosts lots of weekend and afterschool (and even during school) events and activities like Shakespeare, Drama, Chinese, French, Girl Scouts, Bike Saftey, etc. The downside is that this beautiful old building decorated so wonderfully inside and out is horribly overcrowded and and the staff and teachers there are bending over backwards to accomadate 25+ students per class and are feeling the stretch. If Denver knew what was good for it, it'd give this school some financial backing for some expansion, much needed improvement and new hires! And, I can't say enough positive things about the principal and the teachers at Edison!
