Edison Advisement Conference Schedule



Dear Parent/Guardian:


In 2013 our Texas Legislature passed House Bill 5 (HB 5) changing the graduation requirements for students entering the ninth grade in 2014 - 2015.  Beginning in the 2014 - 2015 school year, school districts must ensure that each student, on entering ninth grade, indicates in writing an endorsement that the student intends to earn.  As per state mandate, high school counselors are to review the Personal Graduation Plan and endorsement together with the parent and each student entering 9th grade.  The Personal Graduation Plan must be signed by the student and parent.  Below is the Advisement Conference Schedule of date and time of your scheduled conference during the week of August 11 - 14.  It is imperative that you and your child attend at the designated time indicated below based on your child's last name.

Thomas A. Edison High School is an award-winning high school in the San Antonio Independent School District in North Central San Antonio, Texas. The school was opened in 1929 on what is now the present-day campus for Benjamin Franklin Elementary School. In 1958, it was relocated to its current location on 701 Santa Monica Blvd. Serving SAISD, Edison boasts an enrollment of approximately 1700 students. The faculty to student ratio is approximately 1:15 in core subject classes with a non-core class ratio at 1:20. Their mascot is the Golden Bear. The school's principal is Charles Muñoz. Edison has three schools-within-a-school-EHS.  The student population is equally divided among the three schools.  Each school has an administrator, counselor, campus instructional coordinator (CIC), and core teachers.  Elective teachers service all three schools.  We offer 13 Advanced Placement courses (AP-College Board) and 14 Pre-AP course.  Students also have the choice of enrolling in Dual-Credit course if SAC Accuplaser is passed.  UT of Austin Chem-Bridge college chemistry classes are an option for students interested in science. The college-bound program, AVID, is a great choice for students wanting support preparing for college.  Other college-bound support programs are in place on-campus at Edison. We also have a Health Professions Magnet Program to which students must apply and be accepted.  Enrollment is limited. 

GRADING SYSTEM All grades are recorded numerically.  Courses are generally divided into semesters, with each semester grade of 70 or higher earning 1/2 credit.  Semester grades are averaged and one unit of credit is awarded for the course if the average equals 70 or higher.  For GPA computation, Pre-AP classes received 5 additional points; AP classes receive 10 additional points. 

TAKS REQUIREMENTS As part of the requirement for graduation, all Texas students must demonstrate proficiency in writing, reading, math, social studies and science as measured by the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS). 

GRADUATION REQUIREMENT There are three graduating programs endorsed by the Texas Education Agency.  The student’s final transcript will show which program the student followed.
