Academic focus and philosophy

Educational philosophy and approach to learning Edison offers the tools and support that enable students with LDs to discover the ability to learn and succeed within themselves. An 8:1 student/teacher ratio allows for individualized curriculum and ensures personal attention. That focus, coupled with an emphasis on emotional support, opens the door to achievement. Within our supportive academic environment, students develop self-discipline, practice self-advocacy and gain growing confidence in their ability to learn.
