NEIGHBORHOOD NOTES | Welcome to Edison High School!


Eighth graders choosing among their high school options can be assured of one thing – the red carpet is rolled for them at Thomas Edison High School in Northeast Minneapolis.  If students and their families want to learn more, they are invited to join Principal Carla Steinbach for coffee, lunch and/or dinner.  These social gatherings offer a chance for entering freshmen and their families to get to know each other and to ask questions about Edison.

Correction and apology
I apologize. I changed the headline for this article to Edison on June 14. Apparently there was some kind of software glitch that erased my edit. I have re-edited it. It has now been changed back to Edison – twice. And if the software puts Henry back in the headline again – let me know.
