School Reviews

  • Recommended July 24, 2014 - We send our children to Everest because they take care of them as an extension of our family. My almost 8 year old still runs in to school every day with excitement to see his friends, and my 5 year old would go on weekends if she could. The curriculum is right on, and both my children are excited to learn and share. I didn''t realize that my husband and I would be just as excited to be part of the Everest family as the kids. And, truthfully, we have become better Catholics because of the school It really is a place to feel welcomed and cherished for just being involved in your kids'' scholastic life. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended June 24, 2014 - My wife and I are happy we transferred our children to Everest. Our children are challenged, encouraged, and supported. The approach of developing the full potential of the child, not just the academic side was very important to us. Most importantly, our kids love it! They were welcomed in and developed a set of friends very quickly. Also, I cannot say enough about how important the overall school community is - it was an unexpected surprise. Our faith as a family has strengthened because of the school. We are big fans of Everest and look forward to the upcoming school year! - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended February 14, 2013 - We started at Everest after spending over a decade at another school. My children were nervous to switch schools, but the transition could not have been easier. The teachers, students, and staff welcomed us to the Everest family. The academics are challenging without being overwhelming, the Religious formation is second to none, and the Character Education Program is woven throughout the curriculum so my children are being challenged to grow in virtue each day. The faculty supports us as parents and works with us to form our children into responsible leaders. The teachers and staff provide a caring, nurturing environment where my children feel at home. They have both grown in confidence, independence, and spiritually since coming here a few months ago. In addition, Everest provides both social and spiritual opportunities for the parents. I highly recommend you experience the Everest advantage. - Posted by Parent
