My school offers great programs, great clubs and extracurricular activites, and has great teachers. The students are very determined and ambitious. We learn a lot each day in every class especially our shop classes. The students have great opportunities and great benefits for the future. We strive to advance ourselves and become interested in our future career plans. Nevertheless, our school is a well-rounded vocation high school.
The best thing about Thomas Edison is the selection of shop classes. These classes give kids hands on work related to the field of work they are interested in pursuing. Many times kids question the relevancy of the work they do in other classes to their future. However everyone acknowledges the importance of their shop class, and the experience it gives us for real world application.
I am part of the graduating class of 08. Coming to Edison was the greatest thing i have ever done for myself. I was part of the A+ computer repair program, i excelled in that field and was allowed to join 'MOUSE squad' a program that allows kids, a select few to work and earn money during their school week. I managed to graduate with top honors in that field get my certification and to top it all off i became and SVA teacher/intern. This school opened up a tremendous amount of opportunities for me. And hey im making 45,000 straight out of high school. The school has many extremely great shop class which are up to date and on par with technology. The teachers are just amazing. The environment simply the greatest. I just hope kids can take advantage of all the opportunities like i did. Go Class of 08
