What do you love about Eastern Christian School?
I love the christian environment and the fact that I can express my christian values and my passion for the word of God and the things of God without being secluded.
Describe one of your favorite teachers and tell why he/she is a favorite.
My favorite teacher would be Mrs. Troast because I love her vibe. She understands how to make understanding history seem easy. Which is huge because I typically find this subject challenging. Not with her!
In what ways have you grown in your faith as a result of your experience at Eastern Christian School?
I have really grown both spiritually and mentally because I grew closer to God. I have developed a deeper perspective and I became bolder in my faith. I stopped caring what people thought of me. My experience at EC grew me to become a better person.
How do you feel that EC prepared you for graduation, college/career and life?
EC taught me the importance of responsibility and time management while also trying to enjoy what i do.
What opportunities did you experience at EC that you don’t think you would have gotten to experience anywhere else?
I think the opportunity to learn more about God’s word in detail.
What would you say to a prospective student considering joining Eastern Christian School?
I would say that you should ignore the stereotypes that are put out there about Christian schools and just go for it and see how it is for you. Everyone’s experience is different.
