Eastside Christian School has historically been a leader in academics, and this past year was no different.

In 2018, Eastside Christian School’s 3rd and 7th graders participated in the Washington State Smarter Balanced test. Please click on the following link to see the Smarter Balanced Test Results

I, Gabby Starkenburg, was put here for a purpose by my Heavenly Father. Jesus has blessed me with the spiritual gifts of faithfulness, service, and leadership. However, sometimes in life, I haven’t been so faithful. One Saturday night in 5th grade, I was seriously doubting God. I had just broken my leg, and it looked like I might have to undergo a surgery. I didn’t think there was a God. If there was, why had this happened to me? I prayed to the Lord that night, “Please show me a sign that you’re real.” The next morning, at church, a girl came up to me. I had never seen her before. She said to me: “I was praying during the service, and Jesus put it on my heart to tell you this verse.” The girl then proceeded to read me Jeremiah 29:11. “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.” Ever since that day, I’ve had no doubt in my mind that there is a God. As I go into high school, I will be searching for ways that I can use my spiritual gifts. The best way for me to serve God is by showing mercy, love, compassion, and respect to those around me. I am able to go into high school without fear because I know that ECS has prepared me both academically and spiritually for a great high school experience.
