Thomas Alva Edison School is geared towards the students’ intellectual development and harmony with a social consciousness that permits them to become bilingual and productive citizens.
Edison aims to develop educated and competent students to be social, creative, and able to act effectively as critical thinkers within the different cultural contexts. Students will use effective skills to help them understand themselves better and develop greater tolerance and solidarity with other people of the 21st century.
The academic program is focused in providing students with opportunities to fully develop their personality and talents throughout varied, dynamic, and interactive educational activities. The diverse school community of Edison recognizes the importance of knowing both English and Spanish, while providing learning experiences that enhance the development of the whole individual with whom Edison is committed to.

- All the learning experiences respond to the development of Edison’s whole child.
