Overall this school has been great to my daughters. The teachers are engaging and there are lots of physical activities for the kids. The only HUGE unfortunate drawback is that there is no governing school board or council. Currently the principal is the authority and in the case of my daughters I have been threatened with expulsion when respectfully questioning the Principal's actions as it refers to my children. There is a clear abuse of Power that is going on unchecked.

Teachers got upset when students asked questions. I moved the kids to another school in the middle of the year and its like flicked the switch to turn the light in their brain on...
Eastland over all is a great school! it is focused on Christ and is such a blessing to have.It has many activities and oppertunities to be apart of above all being one of the greatest private christian schools around.The teachers are caring and very helping to students the students are all growing in faith daily and the school itself is a well built organized structure.The Eastland Difference is life changing and i encourage everyone to be a part of it.
My child has learned a lot. His teacher is wonderful and caring. I feel he is in a very safe environment. My child has done very well at the school. With that being said there are some drawbacks. The administrator allowed several kids into the K class that were not 5 by September 1st. I feel this might be holding the other kids back. I see the children that started at 4 and almost all of them are in the "slower" reading group. Also class size should be considered. A private school does not have to adhere to the class size amendment so they have more than 17 children in the K class. Also there is some communication lacking. The administration does not embrace technology so we are not able to email teachers and the website does not stay updated.
A graduate of ECS i have to give my insiders opinion and i would strongly suggest thinking twice before sending your child here. The teachers and faculty are amazing people however many of them aren't qualified to teach what they head up. The School is good until about 8th grade when the learning experience declines greatly. Don't be fooled when your child brings home better grades and didn't before the workload is little to none and the teachers don't encourage to go above and beyond studies. You learn the basics and nothing else putting you at a HUGE disadvantage in College. College advising is completely absent at this school I'm the only person in my class who didn't opt to skip college or go to community college. Around 4 grads of the 09 class scored less than 900 on their SAT if that doesnt speak volumes I dont know what does.
Eastland is wonderful. The teachers go out of their way to help the students and they have a great sports program. Sports is Christ centered not school centered and the kids enjoy participating. I feel my children are safe and bringing home great grades with it still being affordable.
I love Eastland. This is my kids first year there after many years somewhere else. I cannot believe the difference! The kids are striving for high grades the teachers help the children after school if they need it the administration doesn't tolerate things I have seen in the past. I They have football cheerleading volleyball baseball softball golf basketball and they bring home alot of ribbons at the academic competition!
my son is a student at eastland christian school and i absolutely love it! the teachers are fantastic and they are always in a very loving caring enviorment.i feel so relaxed knowing that my son is in school here where i know he is safe and recieving a wonderful education.
Excellent school! Great education and learning experience for both of my kids.
My son spent four wonderful years in Eastland Christian school.Great education cating people and atmosphere. Wish they will integrate other type of sports like soccer wrestling etc...
The best thing I have ever done for my son is enroll him at Eastland. He's been a student there for 2 years now and we love it. I'm completely amazed at how much he has learned in that time. In K-3 he learned the alphabet colors and shapes and I don't just mean the basic ones he knew what an octogon was. In K-4 this year he has learned to identify the letters of the alphabet write them write his name short words. He's learned the vowels and the long and short sounds of them. They have party days Christmas programs etc.and parents can participate as much as they want. The firm and loving staff is wonderful. The faith base is very important and I just can't say enough good things about this school I love it and as soon as my daughter turns 3 she will be enrolled also.
I have been going to Eastland since I was two. I am now sixteen and can't imagine going anywhere else. The teachers are exceptional and the administration truly cares about the students. The academics there are fantastic and I feel very prepared for when I go to college. Eastland offers a variety of sports for guys and girls. Guys can choose from football basketball and baseball. Girls can choose from volleyball basketball and softball. The coaches are great and put an emphasis not on just winning but being an example of Christ on and off the court/field. There are music and art programs for the younger grades and choir is extended up throught the twelfth grade. High school is given the option of participating with yearbook or library. The level of parent involvement from my viewpoint is very high. The parents are able to get as involved as they want to.
Awesome School that lays foundation for our children to learn about Our God and love others!
