EMS is one of the oldest private schools in the region with a century-long commitment to educating the whole student -- mind, body and soul.  With gratitude for long-time supporters, we proudly celebrated our centennial in the 2017-18 academic year. Now we are fully focused on our next century of faith-based, experiential academic excellence! 

Founded in 1917, EMS aligns with values of the denomination Mennonite Church USA: following the ways of Jesus, working for peace and reconciliation, living in community, and practicing simplicity and service to others. Our mission of faith, academic excellence, personal integrity and compassionate service is woven into every part of school life.

Our small classes (12:1) allow faculty to recognize varied learning styles, use apprpriate teaching strategies, encourage positive behaviors, and mentor and celebrate every student, kindergarten through grade 12. We value each student as an individual in classrooms of inquiry and deep learning.  
Beginning fall 2018 our elementary campus moved from an offsite location to our main campus on Parkwood Drive, combining our three school divisions in one convenient location. 
I am excited to welcome your family to explore Eastern Mennonite School! Check our calendar on the top right of our home page or our school Facebook page often to find out about upcoming events and join us to learn more!
