This school may be good academically but it lacks real leadership and discipline for bad behavior is practically nonexistent. Also, if you are a parent and have an issue with the school for example a teacher or a procedure/policy of the school you will be brushed aside. The best you can expect is a "political" answer, the subject is danced around but never really addressed. If you try to push the matter then you are completely ignored.
I teach an extracurricular, after-school class for students at this school as I do for other schools throughout northwest Indiana and I can always tell in about two minutes just how dedicated the day-long teachers are to teaching and maintaining appropriate discipline in their school ... This is a school that plainly has a dedicated and consistent day-long teaching staff as well as administrators who expect the best in their teachers and their students (as well as the custodial staff since this is a very clean school in one of the older buildings I teach at) ... the students are respectful and adhere to instruction from me quite willing ... they are enthusiastic and interested and while the subject i teach can be a bit tedious at times, they give their best effort ... as with any group of students who just finished a day of school and are ready to explode into their after-school lives, they do on occasion have an extra energy that needs to be reigned in but it doesn't require more than a simple reminder from me and they are back on task This is obviously a well-run school with educators who care and give their best to their profession, their students, and their school.
My son is in his 4th year at Eisenhower school and we have had an excellent experience. The principal is fantastic. She is highly involved and that makes such a difference in the quality of the teaching. I would highly recommend this school to any family moving to Crown Point.
it was my son's first year at eisenhower it is a really great school. the teacher are all about parent teacher communication and the principal is really nice and is great to the kids, i would reccomend this school very great.
