Welcome to the Thomas Alva Edison High School/John C. Fareira Skills Center website. This platform will serve as another means of communication for us to welcome you to our school and provide you with any additional information. Edison H.S. is here to empower our children to achieve their greatest potential both as students and as members of their communities.
Edison High School provides a family-like environment for its 1,000 students, 160 teachers, staff, and community members. We cannot do this work alone, so we invite our parents to join us as partners. Our parents become involved in the success of their child and other children by joining the School Advisory Council (SAC) or serving as parent volunteers.
We envision our students becoming world-class scientists, technologists, engineers, or scholars who are able to impact our community in a positive way. We encourage students to develop critical thinking skills, as well as to explore and experiment with their talents in order to discover their purpose and know what their “WHY” is.
Former student records/diploma/education verifications are provided by The School District of Philadelphia (philasd.org)
