This school divides the community within the community. The principal is a bully, incredibly divisive and manipulative. She silences, threatens, and isolates parents who speak up and try to advocate for their children, or be involved with volunteer efforts that don’t agree with only her vision.

We met with Mrs. Whitelock this morning and she is an incredibly impressive and diplomatic leader. We have been very pleased with the patient and attentive teachers we've had as well (ECE Brown & Kindergarten McSherry). My child has loved both of them and is learning very well in the classroom.

We have a son in 2nd grade. All of his teachers have been great. The administration is lovely. We have no complaints. We are so very happy and so is our son. Go Edison! Keep up the great work!
I agree with both prior post from April (2011 & 2012). Edison is a community school, and the school leadership, teachers and district administration can only take it so far. I have to question the people who blame the teachers, or even the principal, for a negative experience at this school.
