What curriculum does Edison Private School use?
Edison Private school offers a comprehensive, world-class educational program. There are several key components to the Edison curriculum:
· Bilingual Education: At Edison, we believe that learning a second language is an excellent way to build cognitive skills and develop an appreciation and respect for other cultures. Our bilingual program builds mastery in both English and Spanish. There are over 572 million Spanish speakers worldwide, and researchers expect this number to continue increasing.
· Innovative and Integrated Technology: From the sixth grade on, students can participate in STEM activities like Robotics and Computer Programming. Edison believes that technology is a crucial tool—but never a crutch—for delivering a quality education. Students thrive where technology and tradition meet. IPads, laptops, and adaptive teaching tools such as iReady and Achieve 3000 are assets that complement a proven and effective pedagogy.
· Social, Emotional, and Academic Enrichment: Edison has designed student courses to follow individual academic levels. Students progress within the same cohorts and with classmates throughout their educational experience. This fosters academic and social integration in blended, synchronous courses and strongly contributes to their social, emotional, and intellectual development.
· Robust College Prep: 20% of Edison students participate in college prep courses. We provide both in-person and virtual college prep to ensure that students are ready to excel as soon as they embark on their college experience. Edison students have a myriad of tools at hand to help them realize their full potential.
What are the class sizes and student-to-teacher ratios?
Class sizes are dependent on grade level. At Edison, we value individual attention and smaller class sizes at the Elementary level for students tailored to their needs and abilities. Edison’s goal is always to provide the highest quality education, and class size is an integral part of effective teaching. Many studies indicate that reducing class sizes in lower grades can have lasting positive effects on students as they progress into the upper grades.
Block scheduling for the middle grades delivers the best of both worlds by maintaining a smaller class size that encourages one-on-one support while also providing a more blended and social group learning experience. While it can be a transition to move from another mode of learning to block scheduling, studies show that students and staff have a calmer and less-hectic experience. It can also provide additional time for deeper dives into the subject material. Students are immersed in a college prep environment at the high school level and participate in both individual and group learning experiences.
How is technology used and integrated into the classroom and curriculum?
Edison provides all students with a 1-to-1 device enabling access to a complementary, all-digital curriculum. We use technology to assist in monitoring progression through educational programs. Our curriculum centers on technology and integrates it in every classroom and throughout the campus to further enrich and enhance the learning experience. At Edison, we recognize and embrace the powerful benefits of incorporating technology into the curriculum and classroom. We tailor technology to fit our students’ age and ability level, and we welcome it as a tool rather than a solution.
At Edison, a rich virtual library complements on-campus academic tools. Edison offers accounts to dozens of virtual learning resources for students and parents at all age levels, from Pre-K to college-ready. Our extensive virtual library ensures that all students have full access to a diverse range of educational styles and media. Many of the tools are available for students to access any time of the day and any day of the year. We believe in cultivating curiosity and a love of learning, and we encourage our students to explore their interests and passions.
