My 2nd child is currently attending Edison and I am still very happy with the staff and leadership. Both of my children were active in the music programs and sports; positive experiences with both. As a parent, I had to take a more pro active roll than the hand-held style of elementary school, but after that adjustment, we were very successful!
Edisson Middle School is a wrong place to send your kid to get a decent foundation of education for his/her future. Due to relocation my daughter had to be enrolled in this so called school and her grades went down the hill ever since. There is no room for creativity or respect for pupils and they are treated less than what is the norm in GB public school system. Some of the teachers are treating kids like suspects and mistaking creativity with mis behaviour. I am so sorry that I did put my daughter through this horrowing experience and am thinking home schooling her to heal some of the trauma she endured in this place. I wish I could write something nicer but I have a hard time finding one.
There's more than one way to leave a child behind and the educational experience at Edison is one of them. The students aren't held accountable for living up to acceptable academic standards. 'Modification' is the rule rather than the exception. Based on the assignments and testing we've experienced in the last 2 years, the students aren't learning to be responsible for developing good study habits, applying them and earning their grades.
