Eastside Christian School gives my child the loving, Christ-centered, quality education we want for him.
They are teaching my kids responsibility, integrity, and educating them, and loving them all at the same time, amazing
I have a student who entered Eastside Christian School in their pre-first program and continued there until he graduated from eighth grade. He is now a sophomore in high school. I cannot say enough about how equipped he was spiritually, emotionally, and academically for high school. To this day, when challenging and difficult situations arise, he will often draw on his Eastside training to see him through! Each and every year that he had at Eastside was special in some way; each classroom and special teacher brought a unique gift or talent to the table. And what a bargain for the very reasonable tuition! I'm convinced that Eastside Christian is one of metro Atlanta's best kept secrets in private and Christian education! Is it perfect? No, but it truly has a staff and new administration that have the desire to move this school forward--watch out for exciting strides!
I have my daughter studying at this school. This school has great reputation being a good academic , however i found that it lacks more unprofessionalism towards parents. The staff are not friendly either to the childerens nor to the parents. I will not recommend this school to anyone.
We have two children at Eastside and they have been there since Pre-kindergarden. I know there must be a so-so teacher at Eastside but we've never had one. They have all been excellent and all different. The biggest thing to us is that our children are surrounded by children whose parents have raised them in the same structured and christian fashion that we have.
We have been at Eastside from Preschool through the 8th grade and having nothing but praise to say. Eastside has been the perfect place for us because of the high academic standards and loving enviroment. The middle school years have been great and the work load has been managable. The High School preparation has been second to none. I know that many Private High Schools, including Magnet schools, in the area look favorably to our school and acceptance of our students. Our new principal has a high level of experience and I feel the school continues to move in the right direction. The facilities may not be up to par with other Private schools, but I have always believed that it is the best kept secret due to great academics and very affordable. The Chirstian environment is fantastic and they practice what they preach.
We have attended ECS for 9 years with 2 children. It is a place where my kids have thrived, their character has been formed well, and they have been challenged academically. ECS has become my family with great people here on the faculty and who are my kid's friends who would do anything for any one of us. It's great to get a superb education. It's another to get that AND be part of this awesome community of people....
We have two children at ECS and we have been very pleased with the school. The teachers are warm and loving and try to encourage each child to excel in their own special way. I also appreciate the way the teachers challenge the children and equip them to meet those challenges.
We currently have a 3rd grader at Eastside Christian School (ECS) and have another entering Kindergarten at ECS. Like most schools in Atlanta, ECS has been through transition. We have found a safe haven for optimal learning at ECS. There is new leadership in place and we strongly believe that this leadership has a handle on dealing with transitional times and difficult or challenging days. If you want your child to be safe, encouraged and pushed to be the best person they can become then ECS is a great place to start. Every child is different. We have many choices in the greater Atlanta area to challenge our children in a safe environments. In my family's humble opinion, ECS is a great place to get a firm and lasting character foundation.
We currently attend ECS. The elementary grades and teachers are GREAT, but your child must like structure and to sit and work almost all the time. The middle school is not nearly as warm and nurturing. Older grades have a heavy work load and little or no study skills assistance. The middle school environment is not nearly as nutruting as it should be for a small school. Admin/principal not very helpful or open minded to 'out of the box' kids that are out of the schools rigid mold. My opinion is that if your child likes paperwork and rigid structure this is your school. The school really should work on building kids up that are in need of help.
The learning atmosphere is second to none: not too small, not too big, clean, safe, and full of friendly people. We appreciate the rigorous yet reasonable workload teachers give our students. We also know that our children are receiving a top-of-the line education: when they graduate they will be prepared well for any advanced high school curriculum. Last, but not least, the Christian philosophy and education has been a key component to the wonderful experience at ECS. Our children are blessed by teachers who study the Word, and pray for their school and children. Our children continue to benefit from the high behavioral standards that ECS expects of all students and teachers.
