Thomas Edison High School is a certified International Baccalaureate World School and certified Middle Years Programme School, which emphasizes an international perspective and individualized, rigorous programming for all students. We provide an academic environment that ignites students’ imagination, engages them in learning, and supports them in achieving their full potential. We have a talented team of teachers who use the most up-to-date technologies and bring experience, wisdom, and passion to support the academic success of our students. We are privileged to have many great student focused community partnerships including: 1) Beacons, a leadership program that transforms schools into active youth centers, 2) Project Success, a youth development organization and 3) Morris Park Players Performance Theatre, a local community troupe that expands our performing arts offerings. 4) We partner with Apriton Educational Advisors,  to offer the Edison Entrepreneurship Academy.  Here, students study Business, Design, Science and 21st Century Career competencies; students in the EEA collaborate with local business leaders to engage in real-world projects that prepare them for the careers of tomorrow.
