Message from the Principal


Welcome to the Thomas Alva Edison High School/John C. Fareira Skills Center website. Our intentions are to provide you with another tool of communication to welcome you to our school.

Edison High School provides a family-like atmosphere for its 1,300 students and 150 teachers, staff and members of the community. Because we cannot do it alone, we extend an invitation to our parents to serve as partners. By joining the School Advisory Council (SAC), or serving as parent volunteers, our parents become involved in the success of their child.

Please enjoy the resources offered to you through this website. If you have any comments or suggestions, please feel free to let us know by using the contact form at the bottom of this page.
