Thomas Alva Edison once remarked, "Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like hard work." Edison High School will always seize opportunities and work hard to make good things happen for its students.
The 4 X 4 modified schedule supports the many outstanding programs and opportunities available to Edison students. Each year more students are enrolling in IB courses, and we still maintain a pass rate of over 80% - one of the highest in the nation.
Edison is committed to every student who enters the doors. This richly diverse high school is committed to a balanced journey through high school. Staff members recognize that the students have a varied set of learning needs and interests.
Certainly, the first priority is academic achievement, but staff members encourage all students to become involved in the extended life of the school. As a member of the National District and Virginia High School League, student-athletes compete in all interscholastic sports. From the performing arts and journalism to the many clubs and organizations, Edison students excel through their active involvement. We have had state champions and finalists in Debate, Forensics, Basketball, Football, Track and other activities.
Edison believes in stepping out and making good things happen. Staff members subscribe to the belief that the school is good and getting better, but that the best is yet to come. The deeply dedicated, talented, and hardworking faculty and staff is committed to the improved quality of life for every student where pride is a personal commitment that separates excellence from mediocrity.
