Edison in Stickney is a great school! The principal is very nice and does a good job BUT- who gives tardys and detentions to kindergarten children who are a few seconds late ??? A lot of times you have to wait until everyone else's child is let out of the car before it's your turn to let your child out? So who is running late??? I never heard of anything so ridiculous! A concerned Grandparent!
The principal/teachers/staff really care about the students. They work with kids from many different ethnic backgrounds as well as rates of learning. Those that exceed expectations get to participate in the Think program, which allows them to learn using different thought processes. Our son has had the opportunity to be in Think for 3 years now. We are very involved in our sons education and partake in the majority of the events offered at Edison and SD103. Teaching is not just at schools, parents also need to take part in their child's education. Dr. Bernard makes that a very easy process.
This school is a very friendly place to be. Our students are happy to be here & love to learn!! They really demonstrate our school motto: Be respectful, be responsible, & give best effort. We have been a Spotlight School in Illinois for the past several years. The dedication of our teachers & the hard work of our students really shines through with the fantastic ISAT scores that we have achieved over the last several years!! It's a great place to be!!
Edison school is a wonderful place to work. The staff, students, and parents are like family. Our teachers work hard and always have our students best interests at hand. Dr. Bernard works very hard to have an atmosphere of learning and respect.
I am constantly amazed at the community environment seen throughout Edison School. We are more than a school, but a community and family. Staff works together to help meet the needs of all of our students. You often see teachers staying after school willingly to help their students, as well as at extra-curricular activities to show their support and interest. Parents and other community members are welcome volunteers at our school, and can been seen spending time with students to help them succeed. Students are kind to one another and come to school ready to learn. Great things come from the students at Edison School because of the positive supports surrounding them. It truly is a community school and a thriving one at that!
Edison school is a great place to learn. The teachers and students work hard to meet the demands of Common Core State Standards. When you walk into the school it is a very welcoming feeling. We have a number of community and parent volunteers that come to school and work with individual students. It is truly a community school supported by many stakeholders. Communication between parents and teachers is very important. Both teachers and parents don't hesitate to communicate with each other via phone calls, notes, and e-mails. Students and safety are the number one priority.
