Philosophy

At The Edison School, the following beliefs guide our work:

  • We believe that every student has the potential to learn.
  • We believe that every person who interacts with a student is a teacher.
  • We believe that learning differently demands that we teach differently.
  • We believe that the responsibility for pedagogical decisions lies with individual teachers.
  • We believe that all teachers should have the necessary resources for implementing the curriculum.
  • We believe that parent partnerships are an essential component in the pursuit of academic and social development.
  • We believe that we must encourage students to learn about learning and to form their own beliefs in a search for intellectual autonomy.
  • We believe that the exploration of the arts and exposure to athletics are essential components in the development of independent, curious, and critical thinkers.
  • We believe that we must impart to our students a sense of moral responsibility for their thoughts and actions in the hope that they will strive to be citizens tolerant of the differences in the world that they will inherit.
