Thomas A. Edison High School Features
Edison FBLA won more competitive events than any other FCPS school, and the second-most competitive events in all of Virginia. More Edison students participated in and won SLC events than at any time in school history (if I’m not mistaken).
Senior Jorge Mansilla served as Virginia FBLA's Vice President Representing the Northern Virginia Region and Northern Virginia Regional President. Jorge and his team have passed the torch to a new team of state officers. I am proud to announce that freshman Katrina Chen will serve as an at large state officer, and freshman Yaqeen Bahjat will assume Jorge's position as State Vice President Representing the Northern Virginia Region/Northern Virginia Regional President.
Our chapter's projects this year received outstanding awards. In the following chapter events, students plan, implement, and run projects around a specific topic, and then must document their project's successes and growth opportunities through a 15-page report.

EHS Recognized for Improvement Achievement
We have been recognized for high student achievement or continuous improvement by the Virginia Board of Education. This award is based on performance and practice during 2018-19 and prior years. We were honored based on the following criteria:
• A 10-point increase in the combined rate in reading and math, and in the pass rate in science;
• A 10-point increase in the combined rate in reading and math for two or more student groups across three years;
• A decrease in the chronic absenteeism rate for three years; or
• For schools with a graduating class, an increase in the Graduation and Completion Index and a decrease in the dropout rate for three years.
We appreciate that the support of our Edison families to their children’s education is critically important in reaching this milestone.
