I have had 3 children graduate from East Hill Christian School and I cannot say enough good things about it! The teachers really get involved in the students' lives and genuinely care for their students. Great academics and sports and extracurricular activities.

This is a school that promotes academics presented in a Christian environment. It also welcomes and encourages parent and family involvement. There is always open communication between teachers, faculty and parents.

My child has been attending this school for the past two years. The school is outstanding. I appreciate the constant communication that I receive from the staff and the individualized attention that we receive from the teachers. The staff are very patient with the children and they take the time with them. They know the names of the kids (even if they're not the kids' teacher) The morale within the school is very high. Each year I ask my child if they'd like to move to another school and they've said no because they enjoy Easthill just that much.

Fantastic school! We are getting ready to enroll our girls for a 2nd year, grades 8 and 10! Small classes, great enthusiasm and highly recommended if you want a quality education and balanced extracurricular activities.
