The Stanford Graduate School of Education is honoring Eastside’s vice principal and co-founder Helen Kim for their inaugural Alumni Excellence in Education Award.
Over the years, Helen has worn many hats and has been instrumental in shaping Eastside’s culture and curriculum. In the first several years, Helen developed the curriculum for every course. She taught the majority of classes and, as the school’s student body and faculty grew, took on numerous responsibilities as vice principal. Today she is the primary point of contact for parents, leads the faculty, guides the curriculum, and has brought to fruition numerous programs on campus.
Helen leads by example, demonstrating unwavering dedication to each of Eastside’s students. Now, in Eastside’s 20th school year, in addition to welcoming our biggest student body yet, we will continue to serve nearly 500 Eastside graduates in college or pursuing professional careers, nearly all the first in their families to do so.
