At Eastern Christian School, student safety is our first job. We have a unique perspective: every student in our halls is created in the image of God. This means that every student has unique and inherent value. We work very hard to protect every student’s physical, emotional, social, and spiritual safety.
There is an immense amount of trust that parents place in the hands of their child’s teacher. Children spend more time with their teachers on a daily basis than they do with their parents. Who do you trust with your child’s spiritual development? At Eastern Christian School, this question is at the very heart of our mission. Our faculty and staff are amazing Christian leaders. Our teachers cultivate a classroom environment that allows students to safely ask tough questions as they develop and learn and grow in their faith. Every student in our school community comes from a Christian home. While we’re still sinful people and obviously not perfect, it is amazing what you can accomplish when everyone in the school community is pulling in the same direction!
Emotional and Social Safety
We regularly hear from new EC families that our student body is so welcoming and friendly. Common concerns in other schools like theft, bullying, and other major issues are virtually non- existent here. If we do need to intervene, we seek to stop problems before they start and we involve parents very early on in the conversation. This really is one where you need to see it for yourself. Come by our campus on any normal school day. Schedule a tour or a shadowing experience and you’ll see exactly what we mean.
With our partnership with the Christian Health Care Center, we have counseling services for all EC students (P-8) and (9-12).
We take the safety and well-being of Eastern Christian School students very seriously. Under the guidance of our Director of Security (interview here), we are continuously evaluating and investing in facilities, equipment, and training to make sure students remain safe while in our care.
