Eads is an amazing school with caring, dedicated, and gifted teachers/staff. The atmosphere of Eads is warm and welcoming, and student learning and well-being are paramount. At Eads we teach strong academic standards, but also strong character building.

I'm not sure where this site gets their data from, but Eads should be ranked a 10. There is no other building like Eads in Munster. Caring staff, love of learning and character building are taught daily. I feel blessed that my kids are having this educational experience. Fix the rating!

The last 2 years (4th & 5th Grade) have not been the best for my son. The homework is piled and we're doing 2-4 hours a night!
