Edison is a Career and Technical Education (CTE) school. In 9th grade, students participate in a CTE Foundation Pathway Rotation, where they explore and learn about the three CTE Pathways, Construction/Architecture/Design, Engineering and Manufacturing, and Digital Media Arts and Communication. At the end of 9th grade, students select the CTE Pathway in which they choose to concentrate. In 10th grade, students participate in a CTE Pathway Modules Rotation, where they dig deeper into the components of the pathway they chose. At the end of 10th grade, students choose one CTE program from within their Career Pathway for 11th and 12th grade. All students participate in work-based learning experiences, including paid work.
