My son flourishes at ECS. . . Everyone at this school is committed to providing a Christ centered education for the children. You can see and feel the Lords love flow thru them and into these children's lives. Escondido Christian school has been a huge blessing to us. I am thankful the caring staff and enrichment my son is receiving.

My son is now in his second year attending ECS. There are no words to describe the LOVE... attention, compassion, and support... my son and we as parents receive from all the school staff ongoing. Because of this CARING... eviroment my son is thriving....educationally. We as parents need to relaize this is the most critical factor in selecting a school. Somewhere where it's not just said ....or in a mission statement but truly demonstrated..... "Every child is unique and supported in their own individual way". My son previously attended two very high cost "Christian" schools south and west of the Escondido area and all along ECS was tight here in Escondido where we live! My son, still often ask me, "Mommy, why did it take you so long to find ECS"? My answer is always the same, I''m sorry....but here you will stay.... until you graduate!! Annamarie

My three children have all blossomed at ECS. I am so thankful for the caring staff, wonderful enrichment programs, and exciting sports. The reasonably-priced before-and after school daycare is a godsend!

The only way private schools can build their financial security is through gifts. Major gifts offer proof of how deeply many donors feel about their private schools. Their munificence is a wonderful example to others.
