About Us

Edison Elementary School strongly believes children learn in different ways and that expectations directly affect achievement. Offering a technology-rich environment and abundant extra-curricular activities, Edison was among the highest rated schools in the Excellent Schools Detroit “5 Essentials” – most likely to aid learning and boost attendance and ACT scores. The Edison school staff works collaboratively to provide a warm and welcoming environment for our students, their families and the community in a convenient Grand River Ave. location nestled on a park setting in the vibrant Grandmont/Rosedale communities. Edison partners with Ludington Magnet Middle and Honors Academy to offer accelerated students a pathway to a successful middle school career.
