I absolutely love this school, the staff is caring and know all the students by name. The principal is at drop off early in the Morning and greets the children and parents. My son has attended since kindergarten, he is now in high school and ECS really helped set a good foundation that my son is able to carry with him through high school and values that will help him through adult hood.

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!

If you live outside the United States, choosing an American private school can be a confusing process. Here is an overview of the process.
Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
