About Our School

Edison Elementary is focused on growing people – students and adults.  Our priority is for all students to become grade-level proficient in Reading, Writing, Math, and Science, as well as all teachers expert in classroom management, SEL skills, and highly effective learning strategies.  In June of 2019, we moved into our beautiful new building which has been designed for safety, collaboration and a focus on communication and literacy.

  • Edison students attend school from 7:55 am to 3:00 pm Monday – Thursday and 7:55 – 1:00 pm on Friday.   Edison students receive Science, Library, and Art each week by licensed teachers.  Students also receive Physical Education, and Computer weekly.
