First, Engleside Baptist Church strongly believes in Biblical education and underwrites facility maintenance and operation costs. Second, ECS teachers are willing to teach at salaries below their public school counterparts to minister to the children in their classrooms. Third, ECS combines classes when necessary to maintain an approximate student-teacher ratio of 15 to 1. ECS currently combines grades 2 & 3 and grades 4 through 6.
