Facilities

Edison Environmental Science Academy features classrooms that develop real-world skills. Our technology, hands-on earth education, and learning labs provide children with a strong educational platform on which to form their futures.

Our facilities include:


Technology-based classrooms
Technology is an essential part of our world, so it is an essential part of our curriculum. In every classroom, we have new and emerging technologies such as:

  • Digital projectors.
  • SmartBoard Interactive Systems.
  • Discover Streaming Video.
  • Classroom Performance Systems.
  • Web 2.0.
  • Full-time staff technologist.

We bring today's world directly into our classrooms with our technology. Whether a student is researching on the Internet, recording a podcast, or interacting with SmartBoard, we are surrounded by technology and the opportunity to use it.

Every month, Edison Environmental Science Academy offers "Family Tech Class" for parents and members of our community. Contact our school if you or someone you know is interested.

Water Sequestering System
We learn that water is a valuable resource through our water sequestering system. All year, the students watch this 1,550-gallon storage tank collect rainwater to keep our garden beds beautiful, alive, and productive.

Garden Beds
At Edison Environmental Science Academy, our students are hands-on environmental scientists. They plant, maintain, and harvest both produce and flowers in our 13 raised garden beds. As we grow, we watch our gardens grow, too.
