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, Yeonwoo Shim, am a child of God and He has given me the spiritual gifts of leadership, knowledge, and faith. God has given me the gift of being able to be a good listener and He has blessed me with the desire to care for my friends and family. The Lord has also given me the enjoyment of making people happy. When I make someone smile or laugh, I receive joy from it. I love being able to lift up the spirits of others. By giving me these spiritual gifts, I believe that God is directing me to take up a profession that can help people to smile and be cheerful throughout their lives, like being a lawyer. I believe that I can apply all three of my gifts: leadership, knowledge, and faith to this career. I’m not sure what God has planned for me, but I know that God has given me the purpose of spreading happiness and positivity. With my positive and friendly personality, I believe that I am prepared for high school. Eastside Christian School has helped me to become a better person and this school has boosted my love and faith for God. Just as Jesus came down to this earth and spread happiness, I want to follow His footsteps. I hope to spread the glory and love of God as I uplift the people around me.
