Mr. Paul J. Saxton
Superintendent of Schools
The Mission of the Public Schools of Edison Township is to ensure that all students achieve at the highest level of academic success. The district, in partnership with the community, will provide a safe, supportive learning environment which promotes self-worth and encourages productive contributions to a diverse and constantly evolving global society. The Edison School District Class of 2010 had 95.7% of graduates attending college. Our students annually receive millions of dollars in scholarship awards. In national and state testing, our students do remarkably well. At John P. Stevens High School, the SAT scores are outstanding with an average of 1165 for combined verbal and math. At Edison High School, 81% of students who took Advanced Placement exams scored a 3 or better. Our two district high schools had a total of 28 National Merit Scholars. Aside from academic achievements, our schools are recognized for their co-curricular programs. Our district continues to have high numbers of students excelling in Odyssey of the Mind, Model United Nations, New Jersey Regional and All-State Choirs and Bands. Our student leaders hold offices in National and State-level organizations. In athletics, our students excel as well, competing in one of the most challenging conferences in New Jersey, maintaining a tradition of sportsmanship and winning against highly competitive teams. As we look toward the future, we are proud to continue the Edison School District’s tradition of NOTHING LESS THAN EXCELLENCE for our students.
