Both of my children have attended ECS. My son graduated last year and in retrospect says he is very glad he attended. My daughter on he other hand never liked Eastland and so we took her out and let her attend an orange county charter. Needless to say, after that school year was over, we put her back

So while the school is small, and strict on behavior, and perhaps cannot offer all the bells and whistles that a larger school can offer, there is no denying that she is safe. The staff cares, oppositional behavior is not tolerated, students can't wander off or others wander onto the property, and I know she's safe. I have found outside programs to satisfy her desires for extra curriculars, and there are ways to ramp up the scholastics if we want to. I think they can raise the bar on academics but I see they are working on that. Ecs is a great option if you are concerned about the environments in public schools. Read less

ECS excel on academics , spiritual development and guide them the biblical truth of Christian living. Both my kids started pre K, now will be on 5th grade and 1st grade. Their Christian teachers are very caring, patient ,knowledgeable & go to seminars.SAT scores of my daughter is 4 level & my son 1 level
... Read more above national ave. We're very satisfied on how they discipline them, they are very obedient & loving kids. I remember on 1st day in pre K, my hyperactive son ran out of the class, Principal Mrs. Green went on her way to get him & calm him down , my son at first doesn'tlike to go school that I need to carry him inside and Mrs. Green saw that we are struggling to bring him. She find time to talk to him and convince him to stay in school. Now he love to go to school and he is a discipline boy. Bullying is not allowed , respect is valued , patriotism & to love God above all & Christ centered living is being taught. Charity works of school & church are great help around the community , students learn how to be compassionate & mindful of others.I feel secure bec FBI clearance is required before any parent can partipate in escorting students in field trips or any school activities.

After we left the school, we ran into one of the teachers who was fired because the school was having financial problems. She said that they've had shocking behavior issues that one would not usually associate with a Christian school. While they will fire good teachers because of money, they'll also

I understand that Pastors don't make much but I really wish they'd stay out of the education arena if the quality is not there either educationally or spiritually. Please get on your face before God, get some Holy Spirit power in your preaching, and try to change the community that way. Win them to the Lord and disciple them- that is the Great Commission. That is how to build a church- not through a school whose enrollment is padded through government handouts... Read less

Overall this school has been great to my daughters. The teachers are engaging and there are lots of physical activities for the kids. The only HUGE unfortunate drawback is that there is no governing school board or council. Currently the principal is the authority and in the case of my daughters I

My child has learned a lot. His teacher is wonderful and caring. I feel he is in a very safe environment. My child has done very well at the school. With that being said there are some drawbacks. The administrator allowed several kids into the K class that were not 5 by September 1st. I feel this
... Read more might be holding the other kids back. I see the children that started at 4 and almost all of them are in the "slower" reading group. Also class size should be considered. A private school does not have to adhere to the class size amendment so they have more than 17 children in the K class. Also there is some communication lacking. The administration does not embrace technology so we are not able to email teachers and the website does not stay updated. Read less

A graduate of ECS i have to give my insiders opinion, and i would strongly suggest thinking twice before sending your child here. The teachers and faculty are amazing people, however many of them aren't qualified to teach what they head up. The School is good until about 8th grade when the learning experience
... Read more declines greatly. Don't be fooled when your child brings home better grades and didn't before, the workload is little to none and the teachers don't encourage to go above and beyond studies. You learn the basics and nothing else, putting you at a HUGE disadvantage in College. College advising is completely absent at this school: I'm the only person in my class who didn't opt to skip college or go to community college. Around 4 grads of the 09 class scored less than 900 on their SAT, if that doesnt speak volumes I dont know what does. Read less

Eastland is wonderful. The teachers go out of their way to help the students and they have a great sports program. Sports is Christ centered not school centered and the kids enjoy participating. I feel my children are safe and bringing home great grades with it still being affordable.
