Who we are?
The Edge Governing Board serves a much greater purpose than acting as the legal decision making authority for the school. The Edge Board makes up the ethos of the school in our dedication to our mission and to the vision of the school in creating success for every student every day. They strive to be a diverse group of individuals who share the same belief in the power of partnerships between the school community and the Tucson community.
