ESCS is an outstanding school with a huge heart for the children. It's truly a community where staff, teachers, students, and parents can communicate effectively and thrive. The staff and faculty go over and beyond. Tuition is reasonable, and there are fun fundraisers to engage with the community.

have a daughter entering the 8th grade and she has been with this school since kindergarten. I also had a brother who graduated this school over 15 years ago and is now a successful Senior FInance Analyst for eBay. Many of my friends and family has gone to this school as well and now are either graduating college or have an excellent career. As you can see already see this is the place to put your young teen in. This has many way to grow your teens mind in culture, religious values and future career. I have seen many students come back to the school, either as instructors, child care helpers or even investing in their own children. There is a very vigorous curriculum for the kids and at times very challenging. The staff loves to keep young minds full running motion but keep fun where the kids do not lose interest. My daughter started with a 3.87 GPA and ended up with a 4.0 on the second half of the year. As I saw her struggle at first, I saw her grow after and with a huge smile on her face. There are many things the school does to keep these mind fresh and waiting to strive. like a Principal Honor Roll, Presidential Award and etc. Also the school takes the kids off campus to see the world grow, like Washington DC, Mount Hermon. the Opera. For sports. My daughter played softball, volleyball and soccer but many other sports are offered as well like football and basketball. This is huge on parent participation. We have our own PTA, Sport Booster Club and more. Parents love to be with their children at home but love to support them at school also. We have a new Pastor Russ Sturm, a new Principal Derrick Leonard and we will see a new Vice Principal. I have talked to them and see a lot a future investment the school will bring like technology, college advisor, spiritual advisors and much more. I cannot wait to see 2014-2015 will bring to our campus. If you want a great school just come and visit this one and you will be easily convince it will be a great decision for your coming young adult child.
