    About Edison School

    Edison Elementary School is a neighborhood school located just a few blocks away from Alameda’s bustling Park Street and Central Avenue shopping and dining district.  With a population of approximately 475 students in grades Kindergarten through fifth and a robust Parent Teacher Association, Edison Elementary School is a thriving and vibrant community.  The staff is made up of highly dedicated individuals who bring years of experience and knowledge to teaching each child at Edison.  Edison Otters are active and hard-working students who contribute to the school community in a number of ways.  Our students strive to uphold the Edison Citizen Agreements and are committed to our Go Green efforts.  Edison’s PTA further enhances the learning environment at Edison with many programs, funding, field trips, technology, classroom materials, and other essential resources. 

    Please explore our website to learn more about Edison Elementary School and our outstanding Edison Otters.

    Attendance Is Important

    Please remember...Attendance is important!

    Students who arrive on time and are ready to go in the morning get the most out of their school experience. Students who arrive late must go to the office to obtain a late pass before they are allowed in the classroom.  This applies to all students.

    Please ensure your child is ready to go for school by preparing their lunch the night before if they are bringing, deciding on what to wear the night before, and that backpacks, schoolwork, and everything needed for the day is ready to go and by your front door.  By preparing for the next day, it can make your morning run that much smoother, and help your child arrive to school on time.
