About Us

Eastside Preparatory School is an academically rigorous college preparatory school located in Kirkland, Washington. We are an independent, non-sectarian Middle and Upper School that serves boys and girls in grades 5-12. For international students, we will only accept applications from international students who are seeking entry into the 9th, 10th, or 11th grade. To graduate and earn a diploma from EPS, international students must meet all graduation requirements as well as attend EPS for at least their Junior and Senior year. Eastside Prep is not always a perfect fit for international applicants.
