Awards & Honors

CA Distinguished Schools Award

In the early fall of 2013, Edison School was identified by the California Department of Education (CDE) as being eligible to apply for a California Distinguished School Award. This was a long process, which begins with being recognized as having met certain criteria as identified by the CDE. To learn more about this process, please click here. We had a successful site validation visit on March 24, 2014. On April 30, 2014, we were notified that Edison was being named a California Distinguished School. Thank you to everyone who has already supported this process as well as all the support we receive year-long.
