A school rich in history with a tradition of learning and excellence

A school like no other

Edison Elementary is a rare treasure: a traditional neighborhood location where the majority of students walk or bike to school. Established in 1926, Edison has educated generations of neighbors.

Our school values of Cooperation, Compassion, Integrity, Inclusion, and Respect are infused in everything we do. We care deeply about educating future citizens of the world, and our curriculum and activity choices reflect this value. Our community garden is rapidly growing, and is proving to be fertile ground for education and exploration.

Featured Programs

Save the Date: Planning for the New Edison

Community meetings June 17 and August 12


Planning for our new Edison school building is getting underway, thanks to voters’ approval of the bond measure last fall. 


Architects to design our new building will be selected soon. Before design work begins, Edison families, neighbors and other community members are invited to join in a conversation about how to move forward with designing our new school building.


Community meetings will be held in June and August to share updates about the design and construction process; discuss community input received about values including school safety, neighborhood fit, community connections, and historic character; and hear more from the community on what is most important in the design of the new school for our neighborhood.


Please join the conversation:

Monday, June 17, 5:15 p.m., at Edison Elementary School

Monday, August 12, 6 p.m., at Roosevelt Middle School  


Work will begin soon to create a temporary school location at the Willard school site at 29th and Lincoln, to house our school during construction of the new school on our current site. We expect to move to the temporary school site after school ends next year, in 2020, and to be in our new building by the start of the school year in 2022.
