Thomas A. Edison High School Named Recognized by the Virginia Board of Education

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.
