hen we founded Edison School in 1993, our intention was to provide a unique experience for students, faculty and parents. Generated from ideas and energy, Edison has grown but never veered from our founding principles. Values are our foundation. We believe that providing an excellent academic experience without simultaneously building character is both myopic and hollow.

Edison educates learners in ways far beyond academics. Relationships amongst our three main pillars (students, staff and parents) are strong and interactive. Students interact with other age groups, are taught acceptance, respect and, most importantly, ethics and honesty. Self-confidence and self-advocacy are continuously cultivated at every grade level.

Although Edison has increased in numbers, our enrolment remains near our desired capacity. We intend to maintain our intimate and nurturing size; every student is significant. Our high expectations of Edison students are no less than we place on our staff and ourselves. We are proud that the Edison community still responds to the triumphs and challenges by fostering family-like relationships amongst all.

Constructed on a foundation of transferable and core human values, rather than trends and materialism, Edison School remains strong as we approach our twentieth year. Our graduates are a testament to this strength as they promote our core values of integrity, academics and community in every aspect of their adult lives.
