Curriculum Overview

Edison Environmental Science Academy has a curriculum based on Environmental Economics. We teach our students to ask questions, make decisions, and be active citizens while learning:

  • Relationships between living organisms.

  • How local, state, national, and global economics work.
  • The impact of a market economy.

Our curriculum is broken into three parts:

  1. Ecological Awareness helps children learn about the organization of living things and about change and interaction in ecosystems.
  2. Earth Science promotes the understanding of solar energy, weather, natural resources, human impact, and land and water.
  3. Economic Development encourages students to become familiar with all aspects of market and global economies.

Our goal is to provide lessons that will challenge learners at all levels. These lessons engage students in meaningful experiences that will support critical thinking skills with a global perspective.
