Mission Statement of Eastside Christian School

“Academic Excellence, Commitment to Christ”


  • Growing and maturing in Christian faith
  • Seeking and discovering God’s plan for our lives
  • Providing strong academics for each student
  • Becoming productive citizens for our country
  • Being a transforming influence in our community

It is our desire to seek these purposes guided by wisdom and strength from God.



Eastside Christian School was established in 1969 as a private, non-profit corporation dedicated to serving the families of Eastside communities. ECS continues to be a place where Christian educators partner together with parents to prepare preschool through eighth grade students for lives of leadership and service.

One reason we believe we accomplish this very high goal is because of the great value we place on each child as a unique individual created in the image of God. Another reason is our commitment to small class sizes, and therefore personalized attention for all aspects of optimal growth: academic, spiritual, emotional, intellectual, and physical.

ECS is approved by the State of Washington and is a member of the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). Situated on six acres, the ECS campus includes twenty-four classrooms, a beautiful chapel, a full-size gymnasium, a computer lab, early literacy library, a large outdoor sport court and expansive playgrounds.

Our caring, professional staff of state-certified teachers is committed to providing the best educational opportunities where the students develop their abilities and talents in a distinctly Christian atmosphere.

ECS is conveniently located near Seattle in the city of Bellevue, Washington just minutes northeast of the I-90 and I-405 intersection, near Bellevue College.  We serve families living and working in Bellevue, Renton, Newcastle, Issaquah, Snoqualmie, Sammamish, Redmond, Kirkland, Mercer Island, and beyond.
