Welcome to Edwardsburg Public Schools! Edwardsburg is known statewide for providing an exceptional educational experience to all students. The creed, “Once an Eddie, Always an Eddie,” really embodies what it means to be a part of the Edwardsburg school community. We truly care about our students, our families, our staff and our community, all of whom make our district what it is today.
Edwardsburg is a special place that honors past traditions while celebrating all that the future has to offer our students. Edwardsburg continues to seek out and provide a wide array of programs, experiences and opportunities for our students, both in and out of the classroom. At the elementary level, families have the option of choosing Traditional, Gender Specific, Multi-Age and Looping classrooms for their children. At the Intermediate School, fifth grade students are able to take advantage of our Beginning Band program. In all of our elementary buildings, students are provided with age appropriate enrichment experiences in many areas, including fine arts and athletics. Through the Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP) offered by the Heritage Southwest ISD, some of our littlest Eddies are able to take advantage of a pre-school program that is conveniently located within our district.
At the secondary level, students have the opportunity to take a variety of classes and Advanced Placement courses in core areas as well as fine arts, manufacturing and engineering. Through dual-enrollment at Southwestern Michigan College (SMC), Indiana University of South Bend (IUSB), Glen Oaks Community College, and Berrien Math and Science Center at Andrews University, students are able to earn college and high school credit simultaneously. Students can also take advantage of our Middle College option where they have the potential to earn an Associate’s degree while they are completing the requirements for their high school diploma. In addition to accessing opportunities at the college level, students have the opportunity to attend the Elkhart Area Career Center to pursue a hands-on, work-based learning experience. Outside of the classroom our students have the ability to compete in middle school and high school athletics as well as the option to participate in a number of activities and clubs including robotics. To ensure that EPS is reaching all learners, Edwardsburg also has the successful Alternative Learning Center for our Eddies who need something a little different than the traditional high school experience.
We take pride in the fact that all of our buildings have received Blue Ribbon recognition by the Michigan Department of Education. At all levels, Edwardsburg Public Schools is committed to providing our students the opportunities and experiences both during and after the school day to find their passion and success in the world. The future is bright, knowing that our Eddies will be prepared to pursue their dreams when they leave EPS.
