Letter to Edison Families

Welcome to Edison School of the Arts! This year promises to be filled with unique, exciting, and challenging opportunities for all of our students and families as we strive to find ways that we can continue to grow and excel! We embark on this journey with a pledge to you, our students and guardians, that this will be a year of engaging, meaningful, and rigorous work in our classrooms, combined with fun and interactive events.

Our staff of highly qualified professionals is committed to providing our students many opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom. You can expect an array of visual & performing arts groups and performances, a wide variety of after-school activities, and athletic and cheer teams certain to motivate your Cool Cat to be involved and stay connected! We look forward to a very positive and productive year together!

We extend a yearlong invitation to our families to join us at all school activities and events whenever possible. We value your involvement, and your support is vital for our student’s success!
