My experience for the past three years at Edison was a roller coaster of emotions! There were times when it was stressful, depressing, exciting, fun, inspiring, and especially memorable. The teachers are very great and considerate of their students. The students are very cooperative and inclusive. And the school culture is just very dynamic and ardent. Overall my school experience was great and I'm just planning to make senior year even more memorable! The best part is that any changes that I had in mind is already being taken care of. For example, as a student athlete, I have always felt that the athletic settings we have are currently out of shape and needs fixing. And not surprisingly, the school is already in the process of getting all that done. This will surely contribute to the growth of our athletic teams in addition to the great academics currently present there.

Where do I begin? This school has become a second home to me! Edison is filled with such diversity! Each individual represents a stripe that makes up one tiger. Many students on campus are involved in school, and this school wouldn’t be as amazing at is it without them. I am in the leadership program at my school, and I’ve been able to see things in a new perspective. Students participate in activities and it fills me with joy. They are filled with so much spirit; just take a look at our student sections during games! Edison is the best school out there! AIN’T NO PARTY LIKE AN E.T. PARTY CAUSE AN E.T. PARTY DON’T STOP!
Edison High School is an extremely special place. From the second I stepped onto campus there was something welcoming and comforting about it. The teachers are dedicated and pour their knowledge into their students each and every day. The atmosphere of Edison is so unique and unlike anything I've felt before; we're a family, all different in some way, but also the same in some way. People hear 'Edison' and they automatically correlate it to 'the school in the ghetto part of Fresno', but those who say this obviously haven't been there to see everything our school has to offer. There isn't anything dangerous or scary about Edison High School, it's a home to 3,000 students, teachers, and staff members.
