If you're in the US, I think it has definitely gone to the girls. If it doesn't bother you that there would probably be girls named this in his class, I'd still use it though. I think it's a nice name for either gender.
I tend to like it more as a girl's name, but here in Illinois there are lots of boys and girls who have this name since Wrigley Field where the Cubs play is on a street called Addison. So, lots of fans name their kids this.
I know "son" names are traditionally for boys, but Addison is sooo popular right now for a girl. Kids growing up now are likely to see it as a girls name. I think for some reason that it is easier for a girl to pull off a name that is seen as a boys name than it is for a boy to pull off a "girls" name. Reminds me of that song "A Boy named Sue"
