Edison High School admits students of any sex, color, race, national and ethnic origin, religion and sexual orientation to all programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.
Family Interviews & Student Shadow Day
After your application has been submitted and reviewed, the student and parent(s)/guardian(s) are invited to Edison for interviews. Representatives from the admissions team meet with the student and family members to discuss their interest in Edison and the student's educational background and learning profile.
If, after meeting, the school feels that the student would be a good match for Edison, the student is invited to schedule a day to "shadow" a current student during a day-long visit the school. Then, a final admission determination is made. Our goal is that all students who are accepted and decide to attend Edison are a good fit for the school, and have the best opportunity for a positive and successful high school experience!
Admission Acceptance Deadline
Families must officially accept admission and financial aid offers in March 2020.
