Values and vision
Edison International Academy is fully aware that all children in its care are growing up in a fast paced, multi-cultural and international society. It is, therefore, incredibly important to provide a strong educational background, but also sound social and emotional skills, so that they can withstand the pressures and challenges they may come across throughout their life.
All staff aim at providing the children in its care with an education that equips them with the skills to become lifelong learners and successful global citizens. It is expected that upon gradation, many students will go on to study at some of the most prestigious universities in the world.
