Edison Township School District (23-1290)

Edison Township School District

The Mission of the Public Schools of Edison Township is to ensure that all students achieve at the highest level of academic success. The district, in partnership with the community, will provide a safe, supportive learning environment which promotes self-worth and encourages productive contributions to a diverse and constantly evolving global society.

The Edison School District Class of 2016 had 90% of graduates attending college. Our students annually receive millions of dollars in scholarship awards. In national and state testing our students do remarkably well. Both John P. Stevens and Edison High Schools’ average SAT scores exceed national and state averages. Our district is one of fewer than 400 public school districts in the nation being honored by the College Board with a place on the Annual AP Honor Roll for simultaneously increasing access to Advanced Placement coursework while maintaining the percentage of students earning 3 or higher on AP Exams (90% in 2016). Our two district high schools had a total of 30 National Merit Scholars.

Aside from academic achievements, our schools are recognized for their co-curricular programs. Our district continues to have high numbers of students excelling in Odyssey of the Mind, Model United Nations, New Jersey Regional and All-State Choirs and Bands. Our student leaders hold offices in National and State-level organizations. In athletics, our students excel as well, competing in one of the most challenging conferences in New Jersey, maintaining a tradition of sportsmanship and winning against highly competitive teams.

As we look toward the future, we are proud to continue the Edison School District’s tradition of NOTHING LESS THAN EXCELLENCE for our students.
