Founded in 1993, Edison School provides an alternative educational atmosphere for parents and students who understand that the development of a child requires a partnership between school and family. Leadership, integrity, and community are values that provide the foundation upon which each Edison educator builds. Tolerance and respect for the individual are core philosophies at Edison, and each student is celebrated for his or her strengths. Academic acceleration is the norm, with many students graduating with one or more Advanced Placement (AP) credits. While students are pushed academically, Edison’s small class size and nurturing community ensure each individual receives the caring and support they need to grow into a happy, successful participant in society.
Leadership is imbued into each student at Edison, developed through whole-school activities and unique programs, such as the Duke of Edinburgh program, which every Upper School student is required to complete. Athletic achievement is celebrated, and students are encouraged to participate in team and individual sports as well as outdoor education. Field trips are a regular part of each curriculum, and for Middle and Upper School students may include overseas travel. Students and families are invited to attend semi-annual sailing trips through the Sail and Life Training Society (S.A.L.T.S.). The value of philanthropy is taught through volunteerism, both within the school and the outside community.
Edison School is located in a rural setting near Okotoks, Alberta, and boasts a 12:1 student to teacher ratio. Excellent and caring educators support and encourage students to develop and excel within a safe environment.
