Transfer Students

At Eastside Christian School, we understand that changing schools can be a difficult time of transition for young people. When a child enters K-8th during the academic year, we have steps in place to help welcome your child and make his or her initial time at ECS a positive and enjoyable experience. Like you, we want your child to be successful and love coming to school. The supports listed below can help achieve this.


  • Your child will be welcomed on the first day of class and paired with a student buddy for the first week.
  • You will be contacted by your child’s Room Parent.
  • After a few weeks, ECS will follow up with you and your child’s teacher to make sure the transition is going well.
  • If desired, the Principal will meet with the family to address any questions/concerns about academics and student life.

Middle School

Middle-schoolers transferring to ECS will have the additional benefit of meeting regularly with an adult mentor to make sure things are going well both inside and outside of the classroom.


I, Evan Lam, am a child of the Lord who heals. My spiritual gift of mercy stems from being homeschooled for the majority of my life. Weak in social skills, I didn’t talk much. But that made me observant, and allowed me to pick up on cues that told me how people were feeling. This enabled me to relate with other shy kids and be a friend. The spiritual gift of service that God has given me comes from my love of teamwork and skill of planning things out in my head; which I can thank years of playing chess for. For example, when we’re stuck on an assignment during a group project, I’ll try to see the bigger picture to help unstick us. Looking at my spiritual gifts, I can see myself being open to God to be used as a blessing and an available friend to others.
