Learn more about Edison High School.

Mission

The four R’s of Eagle Pride (Respect, Readiness, Responsibility, and Red & Gold) are the foundation that serve to turn our fledgling freshmen eaglets into soaring senior eagles. Respect is the base of these ideals, respect for yourself, others, the rules, the struggle, and the red and the gold. Readiness builds on this and asks our students to come prepared daily to learn and grow. Responsibility asks that students take accountability for their actions and create their future. Finally, the Red and the Gold asks students to have pride in their high school, get involved in the school community and be a part of what is great about Edison High School.

EHS is proud to house the Science & Engineering Academy, a demanding four-year program that offers highly motivated students an opportunity to explore their interest in the fields of mathematics, science and engineering within a comprehensive high school.

Teachers

Edison is committed to the continued learning of our teachers and staff. This commitment to professional learning is realized through a robust Professional Development Institute, where teachers have choice over courses that they can teach and engage in. These are coordinated by our team of Staff Developers who also facilitate coaching, and tailor workshops to the needs of teachers on an individual, building by building and district basis.

Supports

The mission of the Edison Public Schools is to ensure that all students achieve at the highest level of academic success. In pursuit of this mission we provide a variety of supports in the form of an ESL and Bilingual program, Gifted and Talented program, Response to Intervention, Intervention and Referral Services, before and after school academies to help struggling students grow, and a variety of specialized programs for students with disabilities.

Health

In Edison, we believe strongly that academic success is tied to the social and emotional well being of our students. Our students are supported by counselors in every building. Counselors provide support for parents and students through one on one meeting time, class lessons, and social skills groups. Beyond our school based counselors, we also have a partnership with Rutgers University Behavioral Health Care which provide a vast continuum of services. At Edison High School, a group of students led by teachers formed Sources of Strength whose mission is to impact their world through the power of connection, hope, help and strength.

Parents

We have an active PTSO that positively recognizes our students' academic accomplishments by providing them with an Honor Roll Breakfast at the conclusion of every marking period. This parent group also organizes Project Graduation for our graduating senior class. Additionally, we have numerous parent-run boards that enhance the extracurricular experience of our students. Parents also are represented on our School Safety Committee and other pertinent panels.

Facilities

Edison Public Schools has spent over $20 million dollars in renovations to update our 18 school buildings. These renovations include major additions and improvements to grounds. We are especially proud of our brand new, state of the art dance studios and fitness centers at both JP Stevens High School and Edison High School. In addition, every school media center has been renovated and outfitted with technology, to provide a modernized place for students to work and research

School safety

Each school in the Edison Township Public School System has video survillance, security personnel, a district director and follows all local, state & federal laws in regards to ensuring student safety. Edison High School has five security officers, a student resource officer, and a police officer in the building.
