School Reviews

I went to this amazing Christian school from 3rd to 6th grade. I was born in a Christian household, so I already have the foundations of Christianity in my young life. This school reinforced the principles and love for Christ. I am currently twenty years old, and I am completely grateful for being able to experience Engleside. I still remember all of my teachers and how compassionate they were towards each student. They helped each student evolve academically and spiritually. The school may be small, but the quality of education you receive is incomparable. I'm thankful for everyone that helped me become the person I am today. I hope in the future, my future kids will be able to attend Engleside Christian School.
