At Edison High School, we believe that every student is capable of achieving at high levels, and we provide rigor across a variety of programs to ensure that students are being challenged in their area of interest. We provide a unique learning opportunity for students through our endorsements of business & industry, public service (law, fire, teaching), STEM, health professions, and multidisciplinary studies. These endorsements are organized into three smaller learning communities that each have its own administrator, counselor, and team of teachers. In our Health Professions Magnet Program, students can choose between a certification as a dental assistant, pharmacy technician, emergency medical technician, or certified nursing assistant.

  • Career opportunities in the health industry and opportunity to earn an endorsement in either Public Service or STEM
  • Clinical Observation opportunities for all fields through Metropolitan Hospital, San Antonio Christian Dental, St. Francis Nursing Facility, San Antonio area fire departments, and various pharmacies
  • Certifications offered: Medical Assistant with Phlebotomy, Dental Assistant, Pharmacy Technician, Fire Fighter, Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), Hallmark Aero-CHI dual-degree program

San Antonio ISD is hosting virtual and in-person Parent Information Sessions every month! These are interactive, family conversations that help you understand what Choice Schools & Magnet Programs are and how to gain admission. We share important dates and deadlines, tips on how to apply, and resources to learn more. See dates, times, and locations of all District Info Sessions here.

  • Virtual Sessions: Join by tuning in to our live broadcast on the SAISD Choice Schools & Programs Facebook page. Parents will be able to post questions directly in the comments during the presentations, and we’ll answer in real time! Questions may also be sent ahead of time by direct message through the Facebook page, or by email to
  • In-Person Sessions: No sign-up is needed. These sessions take place at our neighborhood high schools, so parking is free. To make sure seating can remain socially distanced, we advise just 1 parent and 1 child per family attend each event. *Masks are required due to COVID-19 safety guidelines.
