Our annual Partner with Edison Breakfast takes place in November. Friends, families, supporters and community members who want to learn more about our transformational program come together for a meal and listen to the story of our school. Every year, this event inspires our community with the stories and aspirations of our students, alumni and families. Together, we generate crucial funds that help empower students with learning differences to experience academic success and personal growth. The proceeds support our financial aid program, professional development for staff and technology upgrades at the school.
This year we hosted 390 guests at the Oregon Zoo. Guests heard from junior Jack Holmes and former student Wilson Sherman-Burton about the importance of Edison High School. Past parent, Anne Stein-Gray, shared her “Edison Story” about the positive impact the school has had on her family. Thank you to all of our Edison families, friends, and supporters.
If you were not able to attend the event, please consider making a gift through our donation link or by using our . Thank you again! pledge form

As the only high school in the Portland area specifically designed for students with learning differences, Edison High School is a valuable asset to the community. We deeply appreciate all those who recognize—and choose to invest in—the potential of the special young people we serve.
Edison High School is incorporated as a nonprofit organization and receives no government funding or assistance. Our basic operational funds are generated through tuition, while the remainder comes from donations.
Edison students rely on the generosity of people like you to support and sustain the important work we do here. We invite community members to contribute to the advancement of the school's mission, and to help us offer financial aid to underserved youth with learning differences who have nowhere else to turn.

There are many ways you can share your time and talent to make a positive impact on our students. Edison is always looking for volunteers willing to:
- Serve as a teacher's aide
- Be a guest speaker
- Provide job-shadowing sites
- Provide service learning opportunities
- Provide work-based learning opportunities that can be connected back to the classroom (e.g., internships, longer-term career exploration activities, etc.)
- Provide unpaid, short-term work experience sites
- Participate in mock interviews
- Read résumés and provide tips and feedback
- Provide connections to positive role models with learning differences (friends, family, employees or work associates)
Imagine a student who has been accepted to Edison, and who truly needs the specialized education we offer, but is unable to attend because her/his family cannot afford the tuition. It's a heartbreaking scenario, and one we encounter on a more frequent basis than in the past. In response, we created the Gift of Learning Society (GOLS). Funds donated by GOLS members are used primarily to support Edison's financial aid program.
The generous contributors who join the Gift of Learning Society make a five-year pledge of $1,000 or more per year. For the equivalent of just $2.74 a day, you can become a GOLS member and help a student continue his/her education at Edison High School!
