Established in 1863[edit]

Edison was established in 1963. My sister was in the 25th anniversary grad. class of 88.

Reads like an advert.[edit]

I flagged this article for reading like an advert. The article highlights only the positive aspects of the school, and does not mention statistics regarding drug offenses (quite numerable), school violence, and other disciplinary offenses. Furthermore, the claim of where students go after graduating is unsubstantiated. Joshua 17:38, 26 September 2006 (UTC)

Would you be willing to substantiate your claim that drug offenses are "quite numerable?" Can you provide documentation or a link to support this statement? Limited information on school violence statistics, as well as demographics, testing rates, etc., can be found on Edison's school profile page at Phimu222 17:58, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

Anyone who goes to this school[edit]

If anyone goes to this school, I have 2 questions: I have heard 2 rumors: Edison HS has a bomb shelter and Edison HS has an elevator to their scene storage loft in the theater. Can anyone confirm either of these? Thanks-KeepOnTruckin 00:29, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

No, Edison does not have a bomb shelter. If they do, they kept it a secret from us. And I think the elevator thing is a lie, but I wasn't involved in theater. The only rumors about Edison you should believe are the drug ones. Pancakekiller 18:12, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

Hahaha, Amanda, I love you. Anyway. Both rumors are just that: rumors. We have a genie in the theater department, but that hardly contitutes an elevator. Joshua 17:03, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

Very interesting. I am on a quest to find all the schools with bomb shelters and freight elevators. I heard edison had both of those, but o well. KeepOnTruckin Complain to me | my work here 21:37, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

Actually, a genie lift is technically a hydralic elevator/work platform. But, meh. KeepOnTruckin Complain to me | my work here 01:10, 28 March 2007 (UTC)

I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.
