I am very pleased with Iddings Elementary school. A year ago I pulled my child out of a charter school, because I felt that the school's academic standards were poor. My daughter started first grade last year with a new teacher, who had just moved down from teaching fifth grade. My daughter really ...  Read more

I am not very pleased with this school. I agree with some of the other parents, education is not a top priority. When my son started in Kindergarten, he had a great teacher- she communicated with the students and learning was easy and fun, because she was personable. This year, I have one of the worst ...  Read more

I moved to Merrillville Indiana from another state. I have two children in the corporation and am very pleased with the curriculum that is being taught.

I strongly agree with the other mother the principal and teachers like to cover up when their in the wrong. I have confrontred the principal and the teacher about problems that was going on they turned their head. So good luck at this school!

My daughter was a transfer student from a top notch district in a different state. When she was a student here, her grades dropped big time, because she had already been through the same material the year before we came to the area. The school district is behind the rest of the US in education. Simply ...  Read more

This schools cares for the future of your children. They are strict and have many extra classes to better your childs education. They have many family activities as well.

The principal of this school is the worst I've ever seen. She never returns phone calls. She illegally holds childrens report cards for failure to pay fees. She doesn't take responsibility for her bad teachers. She doesn't have follow up when it comes to parent's concerns.
