Edison High School

5801 Franconia Road

Thomas Alva Edison once remarked, “Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like hard work.” Edison has a tradition of seizing opportunities and working hard to help its students achieve excellence and pursue their dreams and goals. Located in the Alexandria section of Fairfax County, Edison is a reflection of the community with over 50 countries and 47 languages represented in its student population. The staff is committed to every student who enters the doors and recognizes that the students have a varied set of learning needs and interests.

The school offers the International Baccalaureate Diploma, IB Certificates for individual courses, and the IB Middle Years Programme.  One of 5 schools in FCPS with an academy on site, our Edison Academy provides classes on technical skill development, trades, and work-force readiness.  Individual needs are accommodated through special education, English for speakers of other languages programs, and advanced courses in all disciplines.

Academy is great. Loved the teachers I had. Security guards do nothing. Officer Delaware is nice to me. Diverse. Small. Recently renovated.

Went to high school here. So it could have changed. It was a mix. Some teachers were awesome and some. Well you can wait till the end of class or school year. I was always amazed how the staff took the time to get to know each student. Not to be friends or nosie. Put a name to face. So when you walked down the hallway they old say hi (name) and how is things going.

My son Adam Alibrahim currently goes there and he hates it. The principal is an idiot and he deserves to be on the baseball team. He has the heart of an Eagle! Let him soar!
