Is there a way to set up facetime on ipads between say two users or more in the same house or classroom ?

Thanks

It doesn't matter on which connections they are (same wifi not a problem), just set up every iPad with it's own AppleID.

If you mean, one iPad (and multiple AppleIDs), then you have a add more emails in the Facetime setup window.

Ahhhhh, there is more than one ipad. So basically each ipad needs a separate AppleID. I have read that when setting up facetime instead of using AppleID you can setup each ipad for facetime with a separate phone number and email address ?

No, you can setup up another iPad with the SAME AppleID (though I think there are limits to that too, probably 5 or 10 devices on one AppleID). That's better especially if you bought some apps.
If you use this AppleID to call Facetime, all those 10 iPads will ring. Therefore, you usually associate an new email address (needs verification of course, check mail and verify), and remove the AppleID as incoming. Now each iPad has one or multiple email address to use Facetime with, and only that iPad will ring.
