Edison is currently offering tours to all MCPS high schools with a special focus on the south 16 high schools in our region. If your school or group would like to coordinate a tour, please contact Ms. Heather Bradley at email@example.com or (240) 740-2009.
The new Thomas Edison High School of Technology is Montgomery County’s central hub for career readiness sharing a 26-acre campus with Wheaton High School. Programs are offered in construction, automotive and information technologies, medical arts, cosmetology and restaurant management, all housed in professional grade lab spaces to give students hands-on learning experiences. The top floor of the school is also home to the Junior Achievement Finance Park; an immersive personal finance simulation that will host half-day programs for every MCPS 7th grader each year, showcasing Edison’s programs to potential recruits.
Edison’s programs are all organized around a central Showcase space that is the school’s hub of student activity. Students gathered at the Showcase have access to a tiered seating platform, a snack counter, Cafe Edison, and projects on display from each program. Student work and projects activate the circulation paths, with abundant glazing into the labs to showcase the hands-on activity within.
