Welcome to Edison International Academy
We would like to extend a warm welcome to all parents and children to the Academic Year 2015/16. This handbook has been written as it has become clear that the ‘little things’ about the daily life at school sometimes tend to be a bit of a mystery to parents, especially those new to the school. Rather than wait for everyone to work things out for themselves, this handbook has been put together, so that all parents, as well as children can start the school year armed with a better understanding of how it works and what the school’s expectations are. We hope that it provides you with all the information you need; however, should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the School Office at any time. As you know, Edison International Academy aims at offering all children in its care a warm, nurturing, and above all, fruitful learning experience. Our teachers are committed to creating an active, hands-on, and exciting learning environment, which gives children a wealth of exciting experiences that capture their imagination, motivate them to work hard and make them into independent and mature thinkers from Pre-School all the way to Secondary School. However, as your child’s ‘first educators’, we often require your full cooperation, so that your child is able to achieve his/her learning goals. We are therefore particularly keen to involve you in your child’s learning, by letting you know what is happening in class, and by supporting you to be able to help your child. We hope that this handbook brings the school’s daily routines and procedures closer to you, and brings us one step closer towards establishing a productive working relationship with you in the best interest of your child.
