I love Edison Elementary. Mr. Kanard is a wonderful Principal and the staff are are very friendly. The low test scores have little to do with the quality of teachers that are at the school. There are a lot of low income students whose first language is not English. This creates a big problem for trying to convey the subject matter to those students. Our daughter attends Edison and we have been pleased with her education. I know her teachers care about her and want her to learn. I also substitute teach at Edison quite often and prefer to teach at Edison verses the other low income schools in the district.
I was very happy with Edison. My kids loved school there. Everyone on staff is very friendly and helpful. They seem to be doing a great job educating students. I was really happy about how much my kids learned there.
It is unacceptable to me for this school to be getting a failing grade! I would definitely not send my children here again! If you care about your children s education do your research. Edison rate the lowest of all kennewick elementary schools.
We had our house for sale because my kids went to Edison and it was pretty bad. That was until Ted Mansfield arrived on the scene. He and another former principal brought organization and structure to Edison. The teachers were pushed to expect more and teach more. It is hard to believe what he accomplished in only one year with us. Our scores and good behavior both sky-rocketed. We took our house off the market and stayed because it was so much better.

I think that this is a good school, I have 3 kids going there now and they seem to be doing quite well. The teachers are great, they are very helpful in communicating with me. I think that the level of your kids success starts at home. School is the place to learn, but needs to be continued at home. Parents need to get involved and I think that is why I like the school, I know the teachers and they know me.
