Open Quote My daughter, who is special needs, attends this school. This school is the only school I have experienced that bends over backward for special needs students instead of trying to avoid providing services. Most schools try to push out special needs students and this school does an amazing job of nurturing them. They also have a very rigorous curriculum. My daughter receives foreign language instruction, computer programming, robotics, and theater. She loves this school and has done an amazing job. Her teachers are extremely nice and the principal makes herself available anytime. I can't say enough about this school. My daughter has been to many schools and has struggled so much but we are blessed to have her attend the Edison school. Close Quote

Open Quote My son is just finishing up K1 (pre-k). We have been thrilled with the staff. His teacher is terrific! She promotes curiosity, growth, and self awareness. She is structured but they have choice time. The art projects they do are amazing using a host of different materials. Very creative! The principle is awesome. She knows every kid's name and is VERY visible. Always around and engaging. The school staff look out for all the kids which is comforting when sending a little one. The little kids are sort of separated from the big kids with 2 cafeterias but also integrate. The high achiever big kids are mentors for the little ones and read to the kids. Our son's class has structure but also creative time. He's learned so much soaking it all in....science music art dance math etc. They have a specialty class everyday, put on performances in the auditorium. They are planning to renovate the playground this summer. We really like it and our son loves going to school. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
