My daughter has attended Edison since the age of two. The school is extremely family oriented and fosters a loving atmosphere for the children. Many of the children that have graduated from this school have returned to either volunteer in summer camp or later have become teachers in the school.

I am baffled to say the least at some of the reviews given by some parents. I can speak for myself and my son only, this school is by far one of the best private schools in the entire county, if not the best. The parent involvement is absolutely phenomenal. I am not a stay at home mom, like some of the mom's are in the school, however, I do put alot of effort in building relationships with the teacher, staff, and other moms. Its so important for parents to take full responsibility of their children's education and stop bashing the school for things that are not true. Our area is middle to low income area. The school provides a quality program and does not charge at the levels it should. I cannot say enough about this school and it's dedicated staff... A+++

I read these negative post and its a reflection of our society in general ! The teachers are not roll models at the school, "yes" they are but "Roll models" begin at Home ! wealthy students get preferential treatment ! This school is filled with your average families not sure how they conclude a family is wealthy ! Lastly Edison faculty is there because they love teaching, helping children get an quality education and becoming productive adults in society ! Wish this site allowed you to give your identity I think a few of those posting negative untrue things would not have posted them ! Go Eagles !

I'd rather go to any other private school. Pick a different school it will probably continue getting worse here w/the favoritism. I have had my kids here for a few years. The school has changed drastically in the past three years, since we got our new assistant principal. At first I would stick up for her, but things have just gone down hill fast. They have become increasingly hard on the students. Their system is ridiculous. Most things are very petty w/the renovation, but the list goes on and on w/the bad. Teachers' kids and their friends get special treatment.. We are seriously considering pulling our last child out and moving him to a different school. He is terribly unhappy, and now thinks he is a horrible child! He cries and is just plain miserable. They are ruining my child's spirit. It has become a dread every morning. It really is a pitty. We have also lost many, many good teachers.

Our school is an Amazing community It is obvious that the person writing these reviews has no knowledge of the school. To begin with the Assistant Principal has been the same for the last 15 years . Before that she was our science teacher for about another 10 years. She is a very compassionate person and helps the students to be their best . Edison's staff has been the same for many years and it's normal to have some transition of teachers . I am a mother and now a grandmother of an Edison student so I have been part of the school for many years. The school is up to date with all the new technological advances and provides it's student with a family based environment. This a great school and it's a shame for some to write things that are just put out there to hurt someone. The reality is this school has brought up many successful alumni's my child included .

As an alumni of Edison Private School who is actively involved in Miami-Dade's local school community; I am shocked by comments posted on this site by "Parents"? It is so obviously apparent when comments are posted with malicious intent. I encourage those who have a personal issue to GET A LIFE! E.M.

My kids have gone to Edison for the longest, one already graduated. It is really sad when adults use their power of criticism only when they can stay anonymous. If my child cries everyday and is that miserable, get him out! why make him suffer? Is a school not a prison!! I have known the vice principal for a long time, she is "strict" but fair to the kids, all the kids. She cares enough to discipline them and teach them to be respectful, if this offends you maybe Edison is not the school for you. It is a big family where all the kids get the same attention, mine, the teacher's, even yours. Honestly we don't need parents like you, you give "good education" a bad name. Kids there do learn and move on. They offer the right tools, new technology and support, my kids use them maybe yours don't care to do so. And please, Edison not accredited? Do you even know what accreditation means?? Educate yourself on this matter before you bring it up. You know how ridiculous you sound? Edison, "ignore the words of ignorant people" Using this website as a personal vendetta is beneath anyone, even you!!

As a Parent of an Edison student , I challenge that parent from the negative post on 9/26/2014 , to really explain your hidden agenda ! I am offended by your post, it must offend the staff and admin of the school as well when they see these posts ! We have been there 5 years and have only experienced positive things at the school ! I think the claim that your child is miserable , and cries might be due to the fact that he has you as a parent ! Get a life, and spend less time with negativity and more time being a parent ! Oh any BTW , put a bag over your head and you will see how your childs morning crying will stop !

Edison Private School provides an excellent education. This year classrooms are equipped with Smartboards. My son now has an IPad to use in all his classes. All three of my children are attending this school and I have yet to see or hear of any favoritism.

This school has been less than average in teaching reading to students who have reading difficulties. They do not use the type of methods needed by these individuals. My two kids have been attending and I must say I am extremely dissatisfied. The admin staff are rude. The focus on testing readiness made everything else pale in comparison and the education was seriously left lacking. Other parents have shared with me that they receive a very cold reception from this school. I admire the teachers, but the school expects too much. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$

The favoritism is crazy in this school. You get in trouble for the smallest thing! The kids and parents have clicks and the parents invite the teachers over just too get their kids ahead. I can go on and on. It's ridiculous! My friend had their pencil bag stolen twice and no one did anything about it but when another kid had theirs taken the school goes in lock down and has to search everyone's stuff. I can't even go on about the favoritism. The school's vice principal talks badly about other teachers to the parents! My mom didn't even know how to respond. It was incredibly unprofessional. I am a student in this school. My mom and I are writing this together.Thank goodness I'm leaving! Politics, favoritism, no teacher accountability. Far too many requests for money -- over and above tuition (which keeps going up).

EDISON PRIVATE SCHOOL wasn't that good for my daughter it's not that the school is bad it's just that they have too much favoritism with students and the school was asking for too much money and also the vice principal mocked my daughter

This is a great school !! It is obvious that the person writing the comment on September 12th has a hidden agenda. It's too bad they are using this site for a personal issue . As a parent I have seen all the technological advances at the school as well as all the renovations to all areas of the school . I am not an expert of curriculum but from reading the other review I know for a fact they are clueless in their assumptions . I recommend this school to all parents that are looking for high standards , care , safety and an individualized approach for each student .

I spent a great deal of my childhood, and adolescence at Edison. The teachers were always very professional and wise, but at the same time, young and fun they always inspired me and challenged me in more ways than one. At Edison, students are treated like family. It is a place where you don t just make friends for a while you make friends for a lifetime. The school offers many extracurricular activities and AP classes for qualified students. There are also various clubs which you could join, including Drama, Year Book, Student Government, Computer Club, etc. You also have the opportunity to get involved with the community and enhance your academic portfolio through various other programs. Today, I have an exquisite education and one heck of a career! I am currently pursuing my Master s from the University of Florida and I have the extraordinary teachers at Edison to thank for instilling in me confidence and mentoring me all along. Today, I feel prepared to face all of life s challenges thanks to the unprecedented education I received at Edison Private School. Go Eagles!

I attended Edison a few years ago and I am saddened to say that my experience was not a good one. The staff, at the time of my attendance, was rude, unprofessional, and overall unfit to be mentors. The wealthier students were definitely favored amongst the staff, and teachers had no problem making their private lives known to all students and staff members alike. If you refused participate in their ridiculous traditions (Jose Marti parade) not only were you penalized academically but ostracized as well. The curriculum is sub par when compared to that of other schools, and although I was an A student while at Edison, I struggled to catch up with new material when I enrolled in honors classes in a public school. There are other private and public schools in the area with a more rigorous and well-rounded curriculum. If you are unconvinced by my review, let the bad grammar and spelling in other alumni reviews serve as evidence that this school is horrible.

Impressed with the administration the professional credentialed teaching staff and the opportunity my children have to attend an accredited private school in Hialeah. The established success of its alumni and their involvement in the school's community is outstanding and a benefit. Edison is a private traditional school with a 21st century curriculum that challenges my children to improve in all areas. Furthermore the cost of a quality education and the safety the school provides to all students is priceless. I am a very satisfied parent involved in my child's academic success. All parents with students attending Edison should take an active role in their child's success. The principals door is always open.

The newly administered Edison no longer measures up in quality education and/or experienced teachers in order to justify a private tuition. They have poor communication with the parents, useless mid-term progress reports that do not provide a grade average. The only indication that a student is doing poorly is after the report card is issued with a D or lower in order for the parents to pick up at the office (Dade/Broward schools have better and up to date communication w/parents via electronic system). Edison observes all public holidays, has multiple planning/teacher works days, as well as vast amount of education-less field trips that take place throughout the year, it s no wonder the children manage to get any education worth the private tuition. If you're planning to spend your hard earn money to place your child in Edison, I would find better alternatives or save your money and keep them in the public school system. The NEW Edison only seems to be concerned with registering students that qualify for government grants and cutting costs by hiring inexperienced or poorly qualified teachers who barely speak English or just graduated from college.

This school is not accredited. This school is terrible. Teachers are not accredited by the State of Florida. They do not have Saacs accreditation . When they say they are accredited- I looked in their website- I don't know who accredits them. This school is a joke. There are better private schools for your money. Or even a public school will offer your student a better opportunity. The Principle didnt even have a masters degree. The school takes off a ton of days just to prepare for a parade. This school is just a bad investment.

Im a graduate from edison private school. Class of 08!! Lets hear it!! Lol woot woot, my years at edison were the best years of my life! I was known by my name by who I was I wasnt just another student with an id number. When I needed help teachers will always find sometime to help me and others as well, all of the teachers are certified for all those fake accusations.. (someone must of been having a bad day to post such lies!!) edison is like my second family, they offer all type of extra curricular activities like with the sports which is a BIG thumbs up with me :) lol they got basketball (boy & girls), volleyball (boys & girls), football, baseball,dance , cheerleading (yes cheerleading is a sport lol ) .... Edison offers students to have the dual enrollment program which is great two of my class mates graduated with only a couple of their credits missing to finish their associates degree. If I had to do my school years again id soooooooo do it in edison :).. When jr. is born he/she is definitely going to edison

I attended this school a couple of years ago and so did my sister. The school does favor certain students and parents. I don't believe they hire 'real' teachers that do not have enough experience teacher or aren't good teachers at all. Since the school is small they don't allow for student to receive additional curriculum and extra curricular activities and other benefits they would be allowed to receive in a bigger private school or even in a public school. I would definitely never enroll my kid in that school.

Don't listen to any negative add's. i have attended this school for all my life and never had one day when i have hated the school. we have lots of extra acctivites. we range from basketball to football. we have aswell a music class which is free. it has violin to chelo and viola.. as well as guitar classes. if ur a parent and want your child to have a productive future don't think twice about sending your child to Edison Private School.

I've been in this school for about 6 year and I've loved the entire experience that I've had at Edison. The above negative reviews are probably of parents or students that are problematic/have problematic children and their experience has not been the same. Regardless, the school is a great school. I personally believe the high school is the best area in the school. The teachers are dedicated, and the students work on necessary core subjects and don't waste time or do 'free' days like it was said.

I completely agree with the review from November 23, 2008. My daughter is in this school and I'm taking her out of there. She is in Kinder now, so the problem is not only the higher grades. There is a big issue with favoritism in this school. They only give attention to kids if the parents make good gifts or the kids parents work in the school. If you are not in the favorite group, your kid won't get anything. Activities are awful. And parents know what I mean. They charge you for things they don't provide. It's awful. Public schools are better.

I was a student in this school and I can honestly say its a very bad school. all the staff cares about is money. its all about favoritism. worst of all there's more free days then actual work days if you get what I mean. the day care and 1st to about maybe 6th game is better but the higher the grade is the worse the school is. The worst is the high school. I was in the high school for sometime and I still have friends that attend that school so they tell me everything that goes on. So if you're thinking of putting your child in that school, don't.
