I would like to welcome you to Edison Junior High School. Edison Junior High opened in 1953 on the north side of Pekin at 1400 Earl Street. Please disregard the name because Edison was organized as a middle school in 1994 and recognized by the state as a Lead, Demonstration and Partnership Middle School. We have four teaching teams composed of seventh and eighth graders that offer block-scheduling, inclusion, Title 1, tutoring, looping of students and a gifted curriculum. We offer many extended activities, which include liberal arts and athletic programs. Edison is committed to developing enthusiastic, life-long learners. We expect our students to take an active role in their own education, home and community by offering them diverse learning experiences. We use the Malcolm Baldrige Quality Improvement Model to identify our strengths and opportunities for improvement.

Please continue to visit our website and if you would like to visit us please contact me at bill.heisel@pekin.net or call our office at 309-477-4732 between 7:30 AM and 3:30 PM.

– Bill Heisel, Principal
