Thomas Edison Charter School
Welcome to the Thomas Edison Charter School website. We are located in Wilmington, Delaware and serve students in Kindergarten through 8th Grade.
Message from our Head of School:
Welcome to the 2013-2014 school year at Thomas A. Edison Charter School.
We want to thank you for sending your child to Thomas Edison and entrusting us with their education. It is something that we treasure and we will do everything in our power to live up to your expectations.
We have many exciting activities planned for our school next year that your child will get to experience. First, all students will participate in the 100 Book Challenge Reading Program, where students read for a minimum of one hour per day (http://www.americanreading.com/products/100bc/). Research shows that students who make reading a daily habit perform better in school and become more successful in life. Thomas Edison is also a Leader in Me school (www.theleaderinme.org), where students will learn about and experience Franklin Covey’s Seven Habits of Highly Effective Students. We have a National Champion chess program at our school where students learn all aspects of chess, both during the day as well as in our after-school program, and compete nationally in tournaments. Finally, our graduates have gained acceptance into some of the best private, charter and traditional public schools in Delaware.
Thank you again, for choosing Thomas Edison for your child. I look forward to seeing you often this school year.
Thomas Edison..."Educates and elevates every student, every day, to attend the best high schools and colleges. No Excuses!"
