I really love Edison high and I’m very glad I spent my four years there. I love the diversity and the sense of community that we have which I think is the school that has the most variety of race and I think that makes the school more interesting. I love all the fun events that the leadership students and teacher organize such as foot ball games, homecoming week/ skits (which no other school that I know of has), the rallies, and the reventón which is one of my favorites. I also love that I’m apart of the the girls soccer team which is currently back to back valley champions! Something that needs to change is the lunch we need more good food.

I love Edison High School because the diversity and overall school spirit and unity just spread positive vibes around the campus. I also love how so many of the extracurricular clubs at Edison give back to the community such as Key Club and Hmong Club. Something I would like to see change at Edison is the amount of students showing their support at the sport games. The numbers of students present have seriously decrease and I believe that an increase in supports would not only lift the teams spirits up, but school spirit as well!
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.
