My kids have made lots of friends here and have felt welcomed. The school feels safe and friendly. The parents are friendly and down to earth. The staff and teachers are professional and nice. Our kids have learned Spanish as well as an appreciation for people who speak Spanish. The kids take art, dance, and music classes from TK-8th grades. We will look back at this school very fondly when we leave in the future. The school has been through some ups and downs in the 10+ years that it has operated as a community-based charter school, but I think it's finding a happy resting place. I don't feel that the school's most recent test scores really reflect the strength of the kids. We had a rough year in terms of teacher turnover the last time we did testing (2019) and our scores dropped quite a bit from before. However, almost all of our teachers came back this year so we're on the right track. I would recommend it.

Good environment for children. School offer Spanish and English immersion . Also, school offer after school program with productive activities and tutoring for children who needed.
Edison Charter Academy is a great school who centers around helping students and providing extra help/attention to those who need it. The school is very well put together from the teachers, volunteers, and staff which result in the students progress.
