We could not ask for a better school to send our children to. ECS is not only top notch when it comes to academics, but there is a focus on building character and learning biblical truths which is extremely important to us in this day and age. This school is truly unique and is staffed and led by Godly people. We love ECS!!

My daughter goes to ECS. She loves it and so do I. The teachers are great. She learned so much more than I thought was applicable for her age.

I went to Evansville Christian School from K through 3rd. The difference from ECS to public was ridiculous. At ECS the teachers and staff keep smaller class sizes and focus on individual attention for each student. I didn't see this at all after leaving, minus a couple exceptional teachers that cared. I have a 3 year old and hope to send my child to ECS when he starts!

Excellent school in every way. Outstanding academics, plenty of extra curricular opportunities and teachers/staff that truly care about your child. I could not recommend it more ~ we simply love ECS!

We are so happy with ECS.The teacher don't stop being teacher just because a bell rings. That was something we found alot a public schools. This a great school!

I have had 3 children attend ECS. The school's reputation for outstanding academics is very well known and evidenced by their high standardized test scores. What's unknown, though, is that they have one of the most competitive youth wrestling programs in town that is designed to build character outside of the classroom.

My son has attended ECS since preschool, he's in fourth grade now. I love this school, everyone from the principle to the teachers are very dedicated to the education of the children. I love that my son can freely learn about Jesus and the Bible in school. He has been on the honor roll every year due to his and his teachers dedication.

I have had children at ECS for five years now and am very pleased with it. The students' ISTEP scores are in the top 5% of the state. The teachers are caring and Godly people, as is the staff. The classes are small and there is great comradery among classmates. They offer the Accelerated Reading program, as well as, many sports and academic extracurricular activities. It is a safe place for children to receive a quality education.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
