A message from Superintendent
Welcome to the Eastern Howard School Corporation website; HOME OF THE COMETS! We believe that you will find the information contained in this website helpful and informative.
The Eastern Howard School Corporation has two outstanding schools; Eastern Elementary and Eastern Jr. Sr. High School. Our students compete at the highest levels academically and have many opportunities for development beyond the academics with numerous co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. We are very proud to offer a world language curriculum k-12; a nationally recognized robotics team; the only high school orchestra in Howard County; and an iPad for every K-12 student to use at home and at school as part of our “everywhere-all the time” mobile technology initiative. Eastern is recognized as a technology leader with an Apple Distinguished school designation at Eastern Elementary and our corporation has presented at the National Model schools Conference, the joint superintendent/school board conference in Indianapolis, and the State Board of Education. For students wanting to jump-start into higher education, Eastern offers collaboration with Ball State University with the “Comet College” an on-line format where we have saved parents thousands of dollars in college tuition costs. Eastern Jr-Sr High School has been named multiple times “one of the best high schools in the United States” by U.S. News and World Report and this year we are continuing our desire to be innovative by being the first school in the Howard County to pilot “blended learning".
Eastern encourages parents who live outside the district to consider our corporation as we do accept students who want to become part of our Comet family. Our focus on literacy is a very attractive component for parents with young children as our third grade reading assessment passing rate is one of the highest in the State. Our Language Arts and Math ISTEP scores historically are above the State average and our graduation rate and end of course assessments typically lead the area. For parents interested in the arts, Eastern has a fantastic reputation for proving an outstanding experience in art and music with State recognition for our band, choirs, and orchestra. Our annual musical is not only one of the highlights of our school year but is eagerly anticipated throughout Howard County.
