This is our 4th year at Evergreen Country Day (ECD) and I couldn't be happier with our choice to enroll our son here. This year he is totally thriving in Kindergarten. He enjoys school and his friends and is achieving so much academically. One of the things that I love the most about ECD are the small class sizes. With a small class, my son gets a lot of individualized attention from his teachers and they are able to meet him at his own level academically. This has meant that he is offered additional challenges in subjects where he has shown advanced aptitude. We highly value the personalized education experience that ECD provides, we will be here for many years to come.

My family has been at ECDS for five years and we still pinch ourselves. We feel so lucky to be a part of such a wonderful school community. My daughters especially love all of the special area classes that are offered on a daily basis, such as Art, Music, STEM, Computer Science, Library, Tinker Lab, PE, and Spanish. I have never taught in a happier school. The teachers have flexibility to tailor the curriculum to the needs of their students and can make learning fun by adding creativity to their lessons. The class sizes are small and the teachers are able to give each student the personalized attention that they need. The parents, faculty, and staff are all supportive, happy, and work together as a team. It is truly an amazing place to work. If you haven`t had a chance to visit ECDS, I highly recommend that you take the time to see the magic for yourself.

Even among many top notch schools in the area, I believe ECD stands out in its excellence. There is true dedication in this tight knit community of faculty and families to working together to develop well-rounded children who are confident, highly capable and kind. With smaller classes sizes, enthusiastic teachers and beautiful facilities, the school can offer individual attention and experiences that are unique.

We cannot say enough good things about our experience at Evergreen Country Day. Every teacher has been truly amazing with our children. The curriculum is tailored to the student. I have children that work ahead of grade and one that needs extra help. The school has provided the resources to make sure they are all getting what they need. Older students are allowed to select their electives so they can truly focus on what they love whether that is coding or composing. We cannot imagine a better school for our children.

My children have attended excellent schools in Colorado and other states, but none compare to the education and experience they have had at Evergreen Country Day School. The teachers are amazing and the small class sizes allows them to challenge each child individually. There is ample opportunity for enrichment and the Community Meetings that involve the entire school and provide public speaking practice as well as outside speakers are not to be missed.

The welcoming environment, small class sizes, beautiful facilities, technology instruction, Spanish classes, and caring staff at the school are just a few of the standout qualities we''ve found at Evergreen Country Day School. The school is able to meet our daughter's learning challenges by offering extra support where needed. She was welcomed in as a new student and made instant friends. The teachers also welcomed her and offered to help in any way necessary. I''m so grateful we are now part of the Evergreen Country Day School family! Feel free to visit the school. They gave us a full tour and allowed my daughter to "shadow" for a day so she could see what to expect as a student at ECDS.
