Our Mission

The school community seeks to provide a stimulating learning environment that fosters an opportunity for optimum intellectual, ethical, spiritual, and emotional growth.

 

Our Vision

To become the leading bi-lingual 21 st century program in our community by the year 2020 when the majority of our Nations demographics will be Hispanic.

Our Philosophy

Edison Private School was founded on the principal that an effective school must reflect the interests of the community it serves. The basic premise of the program’s philosophy is centered on the ability to provide a blended education of Latin and American cultures in an authentic bilingual environment.
