School Reviews

  • 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
