About Our School

Edison Elementary School is a neighborhood school located just a few blocks away from Alameda’s bustling Park Street and Central Avenue shopping and dining district.  With a population of approximately 480 students in grades Kindergarten through fifth and a robust Parent Teacher Association, Edison Elementary School is a thriving and vibrant community.  The staff is made up of highly dedicated individuals who bring years of experience and knowledge to teaching each child at Edison.  Edison Otters are active and hard-working students who contribute to the school community in a number of ways.  Our students strive to uphold the Edison Citizen Agreements and are committed to our Go Green efforts.  Edison’s PTA further enhances the learning environment at Edison with many programs, funding, field trips, technology, classroom materials, and other essential resources. 

Please explore our website to learn more about Edison Elementary School and our outstanding Edison Otters.

Boy Scouts Improve Edison Campus

Boy Scouts Improve Edison Campus


Two former Edison students were honored for completing Boy Scout Eagle Scout projects at Edison Elementary School this week. Brendan Mills restored a map of the United States painted on the school’s blacktop. Carl Howell created an outdoor classroom to enhance the teaching and learning that happens at Edison.

Such projects give boy scouts opportunities to learn to lead others while also helping the community.

“Both of these young men have exemplified the traits of cheerful service and unrelenting pursuit of getting these projects completed,” Principal Robert Slauson said in his remarks. “In spite of red tape, obstacles, and challenges, they managed to complete these wonderful projects. We are better off as a school because of it!”


“We are grateful that these students have returned to give back to their elementary school,” said Superintendent Sean McPhetridge. “And we thank them for their perseverance and contributions to others.”

School Smarts

School Smarts

School Smarts is an investment in your children, yourself, and your family.


By attending the seven week course, you can get solutions to your questions, including: 

— why is my student not approaching homework the way I want them too?

— how can we, as a family, be on the same page when it comes to parenting and education?

— am I setting my child up for success or failure for the next school year and all the years to come?

— why should I, as a parent or guardian, be thinking about middle school, high school, and college now?

— why does my participation at Edison make a difference?

— why does it matter how I contribute in my community?


School Smarts won’t solve everything, but it’s a terrific start.


Please, feel free to ask Sarai any questions through Konstella (preferred), at EdisonSchoolSmarts@gmail.com, or any time you catch Sarai on campus.

Annual Back-to-School Registration for 2017-2018

AUSD uses Back-to-School Registration every year to confirm that a student will be attending a district school in the upcoming school year. The registration also gives parent/guardians a chance to update emergency contacts, acknowledge annual authorizations, and review the district’s policies. We ask that parent/guardians complete the registration via our InfoSnap online system as soon as possible.

To get started, you will need your student’s unique 2017-18 SnapCode. We will send these out by email starting July 26. (If we don’t have a valid email, we will send the SnapCode to you via postal mail.) If you do not receive this information by August 7, please contact your student’s school site directly for assistance. The easiest way to access registration is to click the snapcode link in the email. If you receive a letter or need to log back into InfoSnap click here:
