Welcome to East Shore!

What Parents are Saying:

"This has been an amazing experience for my son. He was homeschooled prior to this year and has been accepted into the community at ESLA as if he had been there all along. I am so proud to support the teachers, staff, and volunteers who make this school shine. Thank you for making his 3rd grade year "the best year ever". He looks forward to the years ahead."
C. M.

"...From the first day I met the staff I knew my daughter's education was just as important to them as it is to me. A weight has been lifted knowing you want to help educate her the way that works best for her. Thank you from my whole family."
