What do you love about Eastern Christian School?
I love the integration of Christianity into every subject. In the midst of writing papers and taking tests, it is easy to forget my beliefs. However, since God is at the core of every subject, I am reminded and kept on track.

Describe one of your favorite teachers and tell why he/she is a favorite.
Intelligent, wise, and understanding are three of the many admirable qualities Ms. Bazanowksi exudes. Ms. Baz is able to capture my attention in her lessons, and never fails to connect a lesson back to Christ. Her passion for both teaching and for Christ makes her one of my favorite teachers.

In what ways have you grown in your faith as a result of your experience at Eastern Christian School?
As a result of chapel, daily devotions, Bible class, and Little Hours, I have learned that there is a power in community and prayer. Praying for people, and people praying for you, is the backbone of our faith and has helped me grow closer to God.

How do you feel that EC prepared you for graduation, college and life?
I feel well-prepared for graduation, college, and life. The grading system has taught me to be diligent with my work; the Humanities program and honors science and math program has given me the preparation I will need to survive in any college writing seminar, lab, and math class, and thus succeed in my future career.

What would you say to a high school student considering joining Eastern Christian School?
I would encourage the student to join the community that is Eastern Christian School. There is a sense of community that is prevalent in the classrooms, hallways, and courtyard of the school.

What opportunities did you experience at EC that you don’t think you would have gotten to experience anywhere else?
The faith integration, along with teachers who are passionate for Christ, is something I would not have experienced at any other school.
