Welcome to Edison High School, the only high school in Oregon and Southwest Washington dedicated to serving students with complex learning differences or learning disabilities. Our work here is powerful and profound: helping every student to reach his or her full potential.
As a small, private school, Edison High School offers an individualized curriculum that meets each student’s unique needs, and maximizes the ability to learn. We also provide the emotional support that builds confidence and maturity. By empowering students with learning differences to experience academic success and personal growth, Edison does more than prepare teens for the future: it changes lives.
Learning His Way - How Tucker Dordevic came to accept his learning differences.
Tucker Dordevic sat upstairs confused because his tutor had left without having taught him anything. His mother, Kathi, didn’t tell her son why his teacher quit on him, but Dordevic would come to understand. The third grader’s tutor was one of many educators who didn’t know how to help him. The tutor wanted an easy fix and suggested meditation because Kathi’s son was “unteachable.” Read the rest of Tucker's story here.
Tucker graduated from Edison in 2017. He now attends Syracuse University and plays on the Men’s Lacrosse Team.
