Students enjoy a positive climate for learning. Listed below are some ways in which this is achieved:

Assemblies are held most mornings in the "quad" with awards given for citizenship, scholarship, and special effort.

Students from several upper-grade class4s choose to become "buddies" to primary students. These shared activities help build self-esteem in both older and younger children.

Numerous students assist as cafeteria helpers, office helpers, messengers, and tutors. Such activities help all students develop leadership skills.


Selected fifth-grade students participate in a Conflict Manager Program. They receive training and are responsible for mediating some student problems.

Homework is seen as a continuation of classroom instruction from material covered in the classroom. Parents are encouraged to work with the teachers to develop a sense of responsibility for homework by their child or children. Homework is assigned on a regular basis for the time allocation recommended by District policy, as indicated.

  • Kindergarten    20-40 minutes per week
  • Grades 1-3       1 hour 30 minutes to 2 hours per week
  • Grades 4-5       3 hours 20 minutes to 4 hours per week 



Edison School, through Title 1 identification, receives additional funds to assist our educationally disadvantaged children to successfully participate in the core curriculum. Some first graders participate in a Reading Recovery program designed to provide them with reading strategies. Some students attend self-esteem groups to help them interact positively with their peers. 

Under the auspice of Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) some of our students attend before-school classes that challenge their thinking in various areas. 



The following rules are the established expectations for student behavior at Edison School. Teachers review these rules with their students at the beginning of each school year and, as needed, throughout the year with their class as a whole or with individual students.
