I only like the bible club that was it. I didn't like 9-12 grade yea ove there since the school students were becoming a big ego showing off.

This school is out of control. It is virtually impossible to keep my child on the right path whilst learning in this environment

I think that miami edison is a school in dire need of proper management.The students have no respect for teachers or members of staff. I have to admit that some of the teachers are dedicated and even care about their students well being.I think better security measures should be taken in order to to maitain the safety of the school.Apple

I am a proud Red Raider of 2001, but I do have to admit Edison is not what it use to be. Babies having babies and students have no drive on wanting to be educated and their parents are just as young and uninterested. I'm not sure about the staff now but I had great teachers then, who cared, and a strong haitian mother who would kick my behind if I didn't do good. I am now proud to say I am a Paramedic/Fire Rescue debating if I should continue on as an Obstetrician. So stop blaming the school or the fact it's haitian based... Its what the students, parents, and staff makes it. And for the students. Stop trying to grow up so fast and enjoy your innocence

I am a recent graduate from Miami Edison, 06. My experience here at Edison was great with many trails to over come. We were taken back when so many people from outside and the school board were giving up on us. I made it. Despite all those who believe that we had no hope. I graduated top 10 of my class and I now attend the University of Florida where I am studying Psychology. I dint get a chance to take the classes I needed due to the state paying more attention to the FCAT and the ones who could not pass it. Give it in another language for gods sake. that might solve the problem. I'm struggling now because the state dished out the end of the stick for some of us. But I'm going to continue to work hard and come out on top.

At first when i received this e-mail i agreed on not responding but after reading the negative comments about my former highschool it made me upset.I am a proud product of Miami Edison Senior high school we may not have the best fcat scores but as far as teachers i was granted the priveledge to be apart of their non crowded classes, i was captain of the V.cheerleaders, member of clubs FBLA, Deca, School Choir, Spanish honor Society, and more but to sum it up,i am now an honor student at F.A.U. and it is because of my great preparation and confidence in faculty and staff who drilled in my head that education indeed reflects your lifestyle and i chose to take it serious so i can get all the finer things that my haitian community was unable to recieve because of language and financial barriers.

Hi,I'm an ex-student of Miami Edison High,And i'm not joking when I say that is not a school for any child to attend. There were one or tow great teachers in that school that I'll never forget like my history teacher Mr.Givens, And my English teacher Mr.Jones. But I knew if I wanted to Graduate High school it was going to be possible to do it at Edison. So I made a choice to transfre my self out of that school.There were not many after school programs. The class rooms were totally over crowdit.

Edison is not at all a great school. I am currently a student here. The school never has enough supplies for students to get proper learning. Also the administration has no kind of leadership qualities and they all run around like they are lost. But Edison does have a great band and an okay football team. Also our chess club is really great. Many parents are not involved.

Miami Edison is a poor, inner-city high school with a large number of English language learners. In past year the 'basics' - that is the FCAT basics - have been pushed and students have lost electives, magnet programs and many extracurriculars. The school is host to an extremely talented group of students in spite of all these obstacles as evidenced by a recent National Geographic project in which students photographed the daily life of Little Haiti. Teaching quality is highly variable. If you are a parent at this school, fight to get your child into classes with the better teachers. Unfortunately, some child are passed along through teachers who do not teach them for years.

I had the worst high school experience at Miami Edison. Only a handful of techers actually cared for the students. I am now in college learning what I was suppose to know in high school. Miami Edison needs some help.

Well I think this school is a terrible school and I do not recommand this school to anyone.they would lie to your face for example they said the class room capacity is twenty six but its actually forty my daughter tells me that she has 40 kids in her class and she feels like she isn't learnig anything because of the number of kids thats disrupting the teacher so if you ask me edison is an 'F' school because of the unorganize hardly care about the kids administrative staff. The counselors seems like they don't have time for the students because apparently they have a 'waiting list' shouldn't the students be able to see the counselor when needed? So Edison is a waste of time! They need smaller size classes! If you ask me. They also have a medical program where they took my daughter out of. They don't care at all about the students.

The academic situation at Miami Edison Senioir High School is saddening. The first half of the school year was chaotic. Great teachers were transferred, students were left without adequate supplies imperative to learning properly, and there was ineffective leadership among the administrative staff. It was near the Christmas vacation before the school was on an orderly path. Without adequate resources, and effective teachers, the students had to take the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test in Febuary, and March. How could school board officials expect major results from the students, if they are failing to provide the materials needed for academic success? I pray that the school board takes the necessary steps in ensuring that this school strives, and reaches its potential.
