Edison High School Reviews

From many clubs that ensure inclusion minorities to college advisors that are free the entire school year to ensure the readiness of Edison High's students, Edison High School provides well for its students. Many students are friendly and more than willing to help each other. There are many fun events and fundraisers like food truck festivals, T-shirt fundraisers, and food sales. There are also always food drives and donations to the less fortunate in operation. The teachers are well qualified and always ready to help their students and provide a very comfortable and social atmosphere. One place Edison High School can improve upon is cafeteria food and assemblies that address social topics to educate the students on important and sensitive subjects such as the LGBTQ+ community and racial acceptance.

I have been in EHS for more than 3 years, this year being my last one. Many memories have been made in that school and it makes me sad that I will be leaving it soon. Edison High School has a diverse student body and a variety of clubs. I would only like to change the heating and air conditioning; however, this problem most likely applies to a lot of students in other schools too. There is not a lot that could be done about it, which is fine. The heat is not going to kill me. In general, EHS is a rather exceptional school. The appearance outside may turn off some people, but the interior does not leave more to be desired. Awesome job, Edison High School!
Edison High School is a good high school to prepare student's for college. The teachers are always willing to help students whether that be to stay after school, or come in early. They are always there if a students needs help. Some pros to going here is the diversity rate. We have people from all over attending this school, so you'll always have the chance to meet someone new. They have many sports and clubs so everyone has something to occupy their time after school. Some cons are the school is overcrowded, the building is not that big and has to accommodate over 2,000 students. Furthermore, the team rooms for the girl athletes are not that big. Overall Edison High School is a good school and provides a good education for the teens that attend.
