The renovation project at Edison Jr High/Sr High School is nearly complete. The Annex and 1962 wing have been painted and new white boards have replaced the chalkboards. The hallways, auditorium, gym, band, agriculture, locker rooms and hallways have been painted. The 1939 building has been completely gutted and replaced with new drywall, drop ceiling, book shelves, lighting and white boards. The weight room has new paneling and also has been painted along with a brand new press box on the home side. The entire facility will be air conditioned except for the gym. A complete overhaul of the electrical power has been updated in the entire complex to keep up with the demands of twenty first century learning objectives. Finally, there will be a new storage garage for our agriculture program in back of the green house which has been repaired from wind damage.
Edison High School is proud to announce that our College Credit Plus (CCP) with Eastern Gateway Community College is in full swing. EHS students are earning college credit at no expense to the student on the following courses: English, Calculus, Chemistry, Statistics, Pre-Calculus, Word History, American History and Music Appreciation. We are tremendously proud to announce we expect 25% of our students who graduate at EHS to have completed one to four semesters of college coursework free of charge without leaving the building. The 7th & 8th grade had another outstanding year.
Our Jr Hi and Sr Hi students raised over $8,000 for the Jefferson County Mini Relay for Life this year. Our students raised the most money for a school Mini Relay in Jefferson County. Great Job kids! We raised a total of $12,000 in gifts and money to local charities during the 2016-2017 school year.
In closing, Edison High School has earned a place of prominence in Jefferson County and will only be getting better and better in the future!
