We love Edison because of the great classes and teachers!


Posted May 2, 2010

This school has many positive influences on the kids. The staffs, especially the teachers are dedicated to teach and help students to achieve their max potential. Also the parents are devoted to promote an environment where kids can learn and have fun simultaneously....

Edison is a phenomenal school - very smart kids, dedicated and talented teachers, more-than-typically involved parents and a wonderful facility. We couldn't be happier.

Edison has a great program. The teachers and administrators care a lot about the students. It is a special school that recognizes that gifted children have special needs.

Edison is a gem in the city. Can't find a better public school in Chicaog - wonderful teachers and student bodies and families. Loved the old school location more - quieter and safer feeling. Pity that PBS made us relocate. Plus side is kids get to know more friends and a broder society...

Whatever they are doing, it's working! I can see the diffrence immediately compared to other young students of other schools, in theirvattitude about the school, about their teachers, about their school mates, etc.

My son loves Edison -- the staff and administration are top-notch and inspire the kids to love learning and to be their best. In a state that's in the mood to cut funding for schools like Edison, we constantly do more with few resources than any school in I can think of.

Best school in the city of chicago - great staff - great program! It stinks that CPS funding is so low! We need this money bad!

There are many things I think make this school special, the students, classes, and staff. But tyo me the thing that makes this school special is how the staff and the students work together.

I dissagre. Edison gifted is a fantastic school and schol have the highest ratings of cps elementary. Decatur has good test scores but, Edison has great teachers. I am also currently in 6th grade and Mr. Motsumoto is very good at his job as a science teacher. I feel as thouht we are learning at a high school level, and it's good to have a challenge. The only concern for you as the parent, should be getting in. With te fact that Edison goes up to 8th grade, getting in from grades 5th-7th is a challenge.

My DS is in KDG. The teacher, Mrs. Weinstein, is absolutely amazing. The principal is enthusiastic, friendly and approachable. The building is relatively new. The parent involvement is intense.

ERGC attracts and keeps teachers who like teaching and who are driven to make their students into highly capable, educated individuals. Yes, it is a public school, but the motivated familities that go through the process of getting their kids into the school are almost by definition people who value education highly and are devoted to their kids. This goes a long way in explaining ERGC's success. Yes, the workload is demanding, but becoming really educated is hard work, although Edison makes the environment as pleasant and nurturing as possible. I had very bad experiences with public school growing up (mean/lazy/imcompetent teachers clinging to their tenure, duing the barest minimum per their 'contract' until they qualified for their pensions, etc.), but Edison's staff is truly dedicated and goes above and beyond, working before and after school, participating in extracurricular activities, etc. --as a parent I'm very impressed and delighted!

Our Principlas, Mr.Mendez,Mrs.O'toole, Mrs,Gray.and Mrs.Oberhardt. We have a big school with lots of room. There are security checks 3 times a week and we have a very safe bus company. I really think u should apply for this schoo;

My child attends Edison and has been there for a number of years. We have struggled with the decision of keeping him/her there not just because of the move, but the involvement that is required to help your child succeed in such an intensive program. Yes, children are above grade level, 1 or 2 years. I find the Staff and Administration very supportive and wonderful. I have been around school and teacher's do not 'yell' as the one review said. My child finds the program challenging and is succeeding to the best of their ability and truly belongs in this program -- if they weren't I hate to see what they'd do in a neighborhood school with him/her. The parental involvement is incredible and the Administration is extremely dedicated. Lastly, the students look out for one another and truly are caring!

Posted November 8, 2008

After reading all the reviews made by parents, I don't understand what there saying. I have been a student for 8 years and this will be my ninth meaning I am finally graduating and going through the process of high school selection and might I say, the claim that the principle and the vice principle don't show enough leadership is preposterous. The principle and vice principle are some of the most influential and inspiring people I have ever met. I was having problems in sixth grade, right before seventh when grades really counted for my future, both of them helped me mature and surpass both my parents expectations and my own. They helped me succeed and they will not stop until every single one of my classmates is accepted into a good high school.

Our daughter started kindergarten this fall at Edison Regional Gifted Center, and we are thrilled with our choice. She is thriving at this school. The atmosphere is supportive and friendly. We have yet to hear any yelling, or negativity of any kind. The new school is beautiful, the facilities are modern and clean, and I'll take that over a so so location any day. In conclusion, Edison is a top school for a reason. The teachers are excellent, the parents are involved and comitted and the children are challenged in a positive environment. We couldn't ask for anything more.

My child attended Edison on Olcott. We were on the fence about leaving Edison before the decision to move was made. So we applied to other schools and tested. The reason we left is because I was not thrilled with the program, it was not what is it made out to be. I also found the environment to be very negative and nonsupportive. There was a lot of yelling being done and to me that is not an acceptable method of teaching. I also felt the there was a lack of leadership by the adminstration. If it were not for the parents stepping up to the plate this move would not have been as successful as it was. It is the same school, diffrent location, with more challenges than it had before. New buidling is nice / area is not. The parents are very committed to making changes to the school.

Accelerated schools should have accelerated homework... but in no way does this mean MORE homework that the average student at the same age. It should mean LESS homework than students at the same age. Please give these children time to read books of their own choosing, learn about things outside of the curriculum, daydream and simply pursue their own interests, whatever they may be.

We love Edison. My kid is happy and loves going every day. The teachers and administrators are engaged and welcoming, the other parents are great, the new building is gorgeous.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 4 and 7 in science. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

In 2013 the Illinois State Board of Education raised the performance expectations for the ISAT in reading and math. These expectations have been adjusted to better align with the Common Core State Standards, a multi-state initiative that established year-by-year guidelines outlining the grade-specific skills and content students need to stay on the path to college and career readiness. The higher expectations of the new standards will result in a downward shift of where students rank in meeting or exceeding standards.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 4 and 7 in science. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

In 2013 the Illinois State Board of Education raised the performance expectations for the ISAT in reading and math. These expectations have been adjusted to better align with the Common Core State Standards, a multi-state initiative that established year-by-year guidelines outlining the grade-specific skills and content students need to stay on the path to college and career readiness. The higher expectations of the new standards will result in a downward shift of where students rank in meeting or exceeding standards.

The different student groups are identified by the Illinois State Board of Education. If there are a small number of students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
