School Notes:

“Educating Children in the Christ Inspired, Joyful Pursuit of Excellence”


Eastside Christian School has focused on creating an environment of academic excellence and joyful discipleship. Our goal is to help children develop both the skills and character necessary to lead lives of significance. We offer an outstanding academic program, proven time and time again by the achievements of our students.  They read well above grade level, take accelerated math classes, and score exceptionally well on the Washington MSP state test. Academic success is unquestionably a high value at our school, but what truly sets us apart is our Christian program—our commitment to discipleship. It impacts everything that we do.  ECS students pray and hear God’s word daily. They are growing in their understanding of Christ’s teachings and are learning to live them out with classmates and staff.  We are committed to honoring God as a community and embrace our faith with enthusiasm and without apology. As Eastside Christian School’s Principal, I invite you to visit our campus, experience our community, and sit down with me to discuss your child’s education. See if this isn’t the very best place for your child to learn and grow as a student and follower of Jesus.

Christ be with you. Mark W. Migliore Principal – ECS

Parent Testimonials:

"Six years ago, my oldest son came home from Kindergarten one day very concerned. He looked me in the eye and asked "Dad, do we have enough money to go to this school for all of the years? I love this school". Three enrolled kids and all of this time later, the sentiment is still echoed by my kids all of the time. The small class sizes and phenomenal test scores don't hurt either!"

"After struggling for two years at the top-ranked public school in Bellevue with bullying and curriculum concerns, we made the decision last year to transfer our kids (now 1st and 3rd grade) to ECS. My kids are now thriving academically, spiritually, and socially. ECS isn’t just a school…it’s a loving, supportive community of teachers, staff, parents, and students. Two kids in private school isn’t cheap but the education and environment @ ECS is worth every penny. ECS gets my highest recommendation!!"

"Yes, I work at ECS, but I'm also a proud parent of two alumni, now thriving spiritually, academically, and socially in public high school and college. Given any amount of money and the pick of any school, ECS is my hands down, enthusiastic, no-bones-about it #1 choice. ECS is a priceless investment in not only children, but also in God's kingdom!"

"My boys are both ECS grads and the solid foundation of commitment to Christ and His church, as well as, to learning about His world have made them into the incredible people they are today."
