I can't say enough good things about Edison Park Elementary school, it is a great school. It's our 4th year at the school. We have two kids, they love it!!! The principal, the teacher............all of them are amazing with excellent Acadamics. We are very lucky to have Edison Park as our kids school.

I'm going to guess that any negative reviews come from parents who have spent little time in EPE. The dedication to academics, personal development and independent thought are incredible. My son is a first grader, who is reading light years above his level, thanks to an incredible kindergarten teacher, ...  Read more

I am a current student at Edison, and let me say it is a GREAT School. Great Academics, great teachers, and great students. There's not really any bullying in the Middle School, but I can't say much for the Elementary school classes. The Academics are challenging and engaging, there's a plethora of extracurricular ...  Read more

I think my kids receive a well rounded education from Edison. I really love the accessibility of the teachers and principal. A sense of community and involvement is nurtured. There are high expectations for the kids along with a challenging curriculum but they have tons of fun too.

I love this school! From the principal to the teachers, you get professionals who care about your kids. Clean and calm with polite kids and involved parents. What this school needs is more funding to help it grow even more. I am so grateful my kids get to go here.

I can't say enough good things about EPE. It's our second year at the school, oldest child is now a first grader. Our child's reading and math abilities are well above average. We were worried specifically about reading and writing skills entering K. He struggled in this area and did not enjoy working ...  Read more

I moved my two sons from a local Lutheran school to EPE 3 years ago with severe reservations about leaving a private school. I'm VERY happy to say that both of my sons, my and wife and I are more than pleased with the switch. One big downside to this school is the lack of space/overcrowding but the ...  Read more

Edison Park is a fantastic place for children to learn and grow. The teachers and administrators are smart, caring and always give 110%. To address the two negative reviews below; according to EP's state report card, 94% of the 8th grade students met or exceeded the standards last year - clearly EP is ...  Read more
