If I could give this school no stars I would. This is the worst school my children have attended. I have never been to such a disorganized school. The principals, teachers, and staff could care less about what goes on at this school. And the students are the most disrespect kids I have ever encountered, even the kindergartner They can bully, curse, and talk very rude to the teachers and nothing is done about it. I have an 8th grader and a kindergartner so I see both sides and the behavior from the students. I have seen teachers in tears because the kids are so rude. I have had problems several times with both of my kids, went to the office and spoke with teachers and both the principal and vice principal and absolutely nothing was done. On 6 different occasions. I have filed a complaint with San Juan unified, and have had my kids removed. Do your self a favor, if u live next to this school and its your assigned school, fill out a form to have your child transferred somewhere else.
My son Is in 6th grade an gos to Thomas Edison School, The teachers an staff are very helpful an intune with my chid in teaching him on the right path so hes able to grow into a fine student ive found they go the extra mile in getting them ready for the yrs to come in higher grades I feel they truly care about each child as to whole class
I am not happy with this school. My children have been here for the last 6 years and I feel like there is so much lacking. I agree there is minimal parent involvement. I also feel like the admin is horrible. I do not feel like principal/vp are not engaged at all w/ parents. I was at a meeting and the vp did not even introduce herself to me and seemed irritated to be there. There are SO many behavior problems, horrible test scores AND I feel like the parents/children who are getting the most involvement and help are the dual immersion classes. My children were at the school before it was a language insitute and I feel like they do not get the focus that the dual immersion classes do. I feel like my children's classes lack because there is only 1 english speaking class per grade. Not so for the dual immersion so they are getting a more hands on and quality education. Bottom line is i feel my children are falling throught the cracks and I am ready to pull them out and write a letter to the school board. Thoams Edison needs some serious help and I feel it needs to start with the Principal and VP.
The school has a lot of potentials but the school environment is very chaotic and disorganized. We were not told where to meet and what teacher was assigned to our child on the first day of school. Back to school night didn't happen until 3 week after school started and parents were not informed until couple days before. There was no homework for the first 3 weeks of school. There seems to be no one in charge at all at this school. There is loud hip-hop music blasting away when kids are waiting to go to class. The school janitor with tattoos covering his arms and legs also doubles up to watch kids as young as 4 years old in the cafeteria. School yard supervision consists of adults screaming and yelling at kids. The principal doesn't seem to try to connect with parents and kids. His is only seen running from meeting to meeting and holding up the stop sign in the parking lot. My child looks terrified when I drop him off every morning and I am about to pull him out and put him in a better school. He said he is more afraid of the adults there than the kids. This school is no place for any kid to learn.
