This is our first year at ESC school and we couldn't be happier! Not only are we pleased with the academics and high standards at the school but how respectful and loving each child and teacher is! We weren't sure about which school to pick moving from out of state, but feel very fortunate that we chose ECS because our children have been thriving and flourishing both academically and spiritually!

My daughter attended Eastside Christian School from Jr. Kindergarten through 8th grade. She had an excellent experience at Eastside, and was well prepared both academically and spiritually. She is currently a freshman in a Math, Science, and Technology Magnet in the Cobb County School system. She continues to do well, and her transition has been very smooth. I am grateful to Eastside Christian School for instilling in my daughter a love of learning, an understanding of who she is in Christ, and a desire to succeed.

My son has been attending since pre-school and he's now in first grade. He's learned so much already. I love the uniforms. The students look so nice and I'm proud to walk around with my son decked out in his uniform. I think it gives him pride too. Older students are always respectful of adults which is nice to see these days. Shaggy hair or baggie/falling down pants is NOT tolerated (thank goodness!). The Christian values that they are teaching our children are priceless. Gives a child a firm, solid ground to build his beliefs on.

I love Eastside because the primary focus is teaching about God and learning about the world from His perspective. The academics are challenging. And finally, the teachers are passionate about our children, about teaching, and about God!

I love everything about Eastside Christian School! From my child's pre-first class that has eight students to Principal Cripps who brings tears to my eyes when she speaks. I love that my 6 year old son is spoken to by name by eighth graders. They teach responsiblity, accountability, respect for others and a love for both education and God. I love the fact that my child loves to go to school.

This is our first year at Eastside for our 7th grade son. We have been so impressed with the professionalism of the adminstration and staff, the concern and dedication of the teachers, and the quality of the physical property. We're thrilled with our decision to try Eastside and feel like it was an answer to prayer.

At least one of our three kids have been attending Eastside Christian School since 1997. ECS is a school that challenges our kids, academically as well as personally and spiritually. They hold the students to high expectations in a loving manner and the kids respond by rising to meet those expectations. It is a great school.

Eastside Christian School is absolutely awesome!! My twins are in 2nd grade and love going to school everyday. We love the fact that not only are they learning strong academics, but they are learning God's Word and how to apply it in their lives. It is wonderful knowing that your children are prayed over the entire time they are in school. ECS has a wonderful, Godly staff.

Eastside Christian School requires their students (regardless of age) to be accountable for their behavior and personal development. Each person on the staff loves the children and wants the best for them. I am impressed with their dedication to the Lord and the fact that the children are individuals and seen as such. Eastside is the best choice of schools for my child and, more than likely, yours too!

Eastside Christian is such a wonderful school. The environment is very loving and nuturing while maintaining high academic standards. I have had children at Eastside Christian for the last 13 years. My oldest went to Marietta High after attending Eastside and graduated with high honors and an International Bac. degree. He now attends GA Tech. My younger children are still at Eastside. I couldn't recommend Eastside enough.

I love ECS for many reasons. When we began our search for a Kindergarten 10 years ago for my oldest daughter we looked everywhere. We live in metro Atlanta, so our possibilites were endless. We searched high and low, but when we walked out of Eastside Christian School we knew we had found our home! It was actually the only school we applied to! Yes, that was very risky but it just felt right, and boy were we right! From the academics to the teachers to the administration .. ECS is the best school around! My oldest has now graduated from ECS (we go through the 8th grade) and I have a daughter in 7th grade and one in the 1st grade. We are on our 10th year at ECS and when all is said and done I will have been at ECS for 17 years! You gotta love a school when you are willing to stay that long and did I mention I live about 30/45 minutes (depending upon traffic) away from the school? I love ECS and am always more than happy to tell everyone about it!

I love ECS because of the amazing staff of teachers and administrators who serve there every day. Each and every one of them works as a team to give my son a loving, strong, and unique environment in which to learn and explore. They expect excellence from him which I so appreciate, because we do live in a world of mediocrecey. He has been at Eastside Christian School since first grade and thinks it's cool to do your best and be smart, which is often not the case in other schools. I am so thankful that ECS is an extension of the values that we have in our home and I appreciate the safe haven that our son has to learn in every day.

Eastside Christian is a school that supports what we are teaching at home to our children. We are blessed to be a part of a school that incorporates biblical principles in to every academic subject. The relationships we have with the teachers, staff and other families is such a blessing. We have been at ECS for 7 years and are thankful that we still have 5 years to go!

ECS is a wonderful school. The staff is amazing. They provide wonderful academic guidance while promoting the values we instill at home. My daughters kindergarten class is small - it provides a safe, nurturing enviroment where she is getting a wonderful academic foundation. We feel we were led to ECS for her. It feels like a neighborhood school with the benefits of a Christian foundation added.
