About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Edison Charter Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.
A school's Academic Performance Index (API) is a scale that ranges from 200 to 1000 and is calculated from the school's performance in the Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) Program. The state has set 800 as the API target for all schools to meet.
Edison Charter Academy had an API growth score of 782 in 2010. California uses the Academic Performance Index (API) to measure annual school performance and year-to-year improvement. Edison Charter Academy's 2010 base score was 774 and the school did meet its 2010 school-wide growth target.
In 2010, Edison Charter Academy had 20 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The California average is 24 students per full-time equivalent teacher.

Edison Charter Academy Reviews
It is true that ECA is NOT the school it used to be!!! We are now well on the path to becoming a fantastic and vibrant model charter school for SF and the 21st century. The staff changes have been limited to the principal and finding an individual with the same commitment and vision that the staff and community holds. That being said, the majority of the teachers have been at the school for at least 5 years and are committed to top notch education in a great K-8 community setting!! We are NOW a fully independant charter school and are no longer held back by being run by a for profit company! Our future is limitless!
Not the school it used to be. With the numerous staff changes the students as well as the school have suffered. I would steer clear of this school. Unless you have lots of time to monitor the teachers and staff. No one else is doing it!
