The Need

We are Far Beyond

Capacity

Students in Edison School District are experiencing overcrowding, which results in:

Congested Classrooms

Community & Property Value Depreciation

Safety & Discipline Concerns

NEED LONG-TERM SOLUTION

Edison School District has been making use of what they have frugally and strategically. However, these short-term solutions are, in fact, short-term and in need of permanent solutions. Currently:

  • Hallways and entryways are used for makeshift classrooms and cafeterias
  • Special elective classes such as music and art are held from rolling carts
  • Detached trailers are used as classrooms to accommodate students
  • Students share desks
  • Lunch time is cut short to alleviate traffic in the hallways
OUR KIDS ARE WORTH IT

Edison is experiencing a steady growth in population. Edison’s proud history has not gone unnoticed. To date, Edison, New Jersey is:

  • Named one of “American’s 10 Best Places to Grow Up” by U.S. News & World Report in 2009
  • Ranked one of the top four places to live in New Jersey by Money Magazine
  • Ranks 28th as the most-livable small city in the United States by CNN’s Money Magazine
  •  The home of John P. Stevens High School, ranked 35th of all high schools within New Jersey, according to the 2019 U.S. News & World Report.
THE SOLUTION

Our students deserve for their schools to be updated and renovated to better provide great education, improve safety, and accommodate for the future growth in students in the years to come. That’s why the Edison Board of Education came up with a 4 point plan for the long-term growth of a better community.
