ECS Ridge Lake is a wonderful learning community of students, teachers, and parents who work together for academic excellence with Biblical worldview integration. The academic rigor stretches and challenges students, as they are taught and mentored by gifted educators who are passionate about learning and about helping students to view all of their experiences through the lens of Scripture. The students consistently score very well on nationally normed academic tests, while also growing through exposure to fine arts and athletics. The ECS experience is life-changing!

RARE! We are a small campus at RL and we love each other like family. Our teachers see their role as a mission to teach our children strong academically while teaching them a biblical worldview throughout the day. If my children are going to spend 7 hours a day away from home there is no other place I would want them to be.

Being a teacher for 10 years before staying at home with my children, I was very aware of what made a school excellent. ECS has not disappointed. The teachers are wise, encouraging and, yet, challenge their students to do their very best. The principal is outstanding and warm. The school community is inviting, caring and service-oriented. My family is extremely blessed and thankful to be a part of the ECS Ridgelake community.

We love ECS!!! The teachers, staff and environment are so positive and encouraging. My child loves his school. He has matured before our eyes since starting at ECS. We have been impressed by the curriculum and service minded philosophy that ECS stands behind with great support. We encourage any family in the Memphis area that in considering a private school education for their child or children to attend an Experience ECS tour.

ECS is by far the greatest education in all of Tennessee! They have won athletic best of preps numerous years, the teacher involvement in the students progress is outstanding, the challenges students face in the classroom are great, and they even have a Philosophy class taught by Noah Brink. The classes are outstanding and students engage in rhetoric and logic and learn how to use those skills in life.

We are completely thrilled with the education our son is receiving at ECS. From day one in Junior Kindergarten, your child will experience subjects such as art, computer, Bible, physical education, music, foreign language, math, science, and reading. The teachers are caring and well prepared, and the students are well behaved and respectful to one another. This wonderful school provides a Christ-centered education and challenges its students to know the Lord Jesus Christ. Our son loves it!

I transfered here from a public school in the 8th grade. The academics are slightly more difficult than the honors classes at my previous school, but the teachers and students helped to make it an easy transition.

An excellent school with above average academic requirements and a great extracurricular program. An excellent mission which the faculty, staff and administration wholly support and try to model.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
