Thomas Edison Accelerated Elementary School

by Gene Chasin & Henry M. Levin - 1995

Thomas Edison Elementary School in Sacramento is a prototype of the California challenge. Edison is one of fifty-one elementary schools among the eighty-nine schools in the San Juan Unified School District. Edison's early success in meeting its challenges are due to a major transformation of the school that has been undertaken by Edison staff, students, and parents. Edison is one of the growing number of schools that are following the Accelerated Schools process to bring all students into the academic mainstream by the end of their elementary schooling and to give them further support at the middle and secondary levels.
