Too many ECS high school kids throw and attend wild parties. Parents and school seem to be in denial.
ECS is an outstanding school. My child has been at ECS for 8 years. We love ECS! The faculty is great! The curriculum is vigorous, well rounded providing a real Christian Worldview, First Class education. We have built solid, good, fun relationships with families of ECS. The sincerity of teachers and faculty to really mentor, build relationships, and instill good character in ECS students as well as assisting them to ensure students excel is amazing. I watch the seniors year after year. They are all such well rounded quality individuals. That speaks the most for ECS.
Most of the teachers are great but the students and parents aren't the nicest. They need a fresh perspective to see what they aren't willing to see or acknowledge. Wasn't a friendly environment.
Our children have attended ECS for 8 years, and I can honestly say I have not regretted it for one second. While ECS is not perfect (no school is) the leadership, including faculty, staff, administrators, coaches and support personnel, are all committed to providing a top flight education centered around a Christian worldview, and caring and mentoring to each child and their unique needs. The teachers are all genuinely loving and caring, provide a great mix between discipline and "grace", and do all they can to encourage each child to develop their unique strengths and abilities. The school is a fantastic steward of its financial resources. While the facilities are not the biggest or shiniest, they are all high quality and effective, and the school continually looks to upgrade and improve. The school offers a very strong variety of programs across the spectrum sports, fine arts, academic extra cirricular and leadership development. But above all, this is a school whose community looks to honor and glorify God through all it does, and provide an excellent Christ-centered educational experience.
ECS is outstanding. A rigorous college-prep curriculum is infused with Christian worldview for a truly unique education. ECS is large enough to offer a full academic, athletic, and fine arts program but small enough that every child is known and cared for. My children have flourished at ECS.
This school is the greatest school on all of the planet! The teachers are involved with the students, working with the students who are struggling or need help. The English department is one of the greatest the city of Memphis has to offer. All of the teachers in that department speak with great intelligence and great wisdom. They teach students to love knowledge and to pursue knowledge, not just for the sake of getting the best grade but for the sake of seeking out Truth and pursuing ultimate Truth, or God. The Science department also excels, bringing students to a greater understanding of the natural world. ECS also offers a fantastic foreign language program that offers Latin, French, and Spanish. I would put more but this website won't let me. Great sports, teacher involvement, focus on God, and many clubs offered at this fine institution.
ECS provides you with a challenging curriculum and a Christian atmosphere. It truly is one of the last Christian schools in Memphis. While it may not be the cheapest, it provides you with a good environment for learning. We have very few students who smoke, drink, etc. unlike some other schools in the area. The students are truly kind and really care about the community around them. They have a high participation in all events and a great student section. The lunch program is amazing, with tons of healthy options and good tasting food.
This school is a great school where your children can excel. The students are friendly, good kids. The teachers really care about your children and will help them by providing tutoring before school and by keeping contact with you. The food is great and has tons of options. There is an activity for every child. ECS really wants every child to succeed. The academics are challenging without being impossible and will provide your child with a top-notch education that prepares them for college.
One of the best schools our children have ever attended. After our previous school experience, we were a bit gun shy. That fear was quickly put to rest. Excellent leadership, teachers, friendly parents and students. Rigorous academics.
ECS has become our family! Their commitment to have a strong focus on both academic and spiritual matters without sacrificing one for the other is apparent. We love the highly-educated teachers, small class size and the commitment of the faculty and staff! WE LOVE ECS!
ECS has been such a blessing to us as a family! It's so refreshing to see a school actually doing what they are supposed to be doing: teaching to various learning styles, using lots of hands on materials and technology. The staff is highly qualified and the curriculum is the best I've seen put to use in this city. By providing christian families a great school with strong academics, ECS partners with parents and churches to develop a strong Biblical Worldview. After much prayer, we found the school I can be proud to send my children to and know they are being taught a rigorous academic curriculum and Truth from the Word of God! Best in the city!
We have been delighted with ECS and the character and integrity they develop in young people. They work with Christian parents to establish qualities that will serve children for the rest of their lives. The teachers and curriculum are outstanding.
We love this school. The education is so much better than the public school system, and there is also the added bonus of the Christian atmosphere.
overpriced, arrogant families who think their kids are better than anyone else. In Cordova area, you can get just as good or better education at the public schools
This is the finest school my daughter has been to. It has wonderful teachers and a loving and learning environment. The curriculum is outstanding.
