Evans is a gem of a school, full of such warmth and a strong sense of community. It's like a big family where 6th graders greet all the younger students by name & every teacher cares for & supports the students like their own children.The academics are superb; setting up the kids to be confident learners and very prepared for middle & high school. The science lab is amazing and is a favorite of my child. Kids are grouped by reading & math levels starting in lower school for a very personalized educational approach , resulting in even smaller teacher-student ratios. At least once a month there is a performance of some kind - musicals, poetry readings, Christmas and Thanksgiving concerts. My kids love this aspect of the school and it has helped my shy child grow more confident, especially with public speaking. As a parent I also love these performances - in addition to the many family picnics and parent-only Christmas parties - as a time to connect with fellow parents, teachers and staff.Lastly and most importantly, the school's focus on values, integrity and character building is what sets it apart. My child comes home from school almost more proud of her 'kindness' award than any grade she achieves....and I love this message that the school promotes. I could not recommend this school more!

Our family adores the Evans School. The school environment is safe, warm and welcoming, and the teachers and staff truly care about the students. The character education that is provided at this school is invaluable. Our children were taught how to be citizens with integrity and a heart of gold. Students are well-prepared for middle school and are appropriately academically challenged at Evans.
