Our children entered 3rd and 5th grade and were warmly welcomed by the community. While the academic curriculum is rigorous, it is equally matched by a commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and social-emotional learning. Our children have developed self-awareness, a commitment to social justice, and the executive functioning skills to engage in deep learning. Opportunities to apply to learn through projects, collaboration, and real-world tasks prepared my eldest daughter for high school. As parents, we feel incredibly grateful for the opportunities the school has afforded our kids!

We've been at The Evergreen School since 2015 and I can't say enough about it. The teachers are engaged, experienced, and caring. During the pandemic, the leadership staff has been unwavering in keeping students safe while still providing high-quality education. I have a child who is a current student who loves the school and a child who is an alum and who still talks fondly of Evergreen. I highly recommend the school.

My son has been at Evergreen for two-and-a-half years and enjoys going to school. It's heart warming every time I hear the head of school faculty, students, and other parents greet my son by name. I often hear him singing songs he learned in his music and Mandarin classes. He's excited to share the projects he's worked on at school. He's made "just because" gifts to give to his teachers. The other day I asked him what he's grateful for and he said "Evergreen". I'm truly grateful for The Evergreen School as well.

The Evergreen School is a true GEM. We feel so good knowing that our kids are in a loving, supportive environment where they are treated as individuals and challenged at their OWN levels. The bonus is the thoughtfully selected peer group - having your child around others that challenge their thinking and ideas is a gift and hard to find. We can't recommend Evergreen enough!

The Evergreen School has been an amazing experience for both our children and our family. The school is a very special place where highly capable kids can thrive. We have been Evergreen parents for over 9 years and I can't recommend this school enough. It's really incredible what they are doing here and their approach to learning.

My husband and I are incredibly happy with The Evergreen School. Our biggest measuring stick is that every single day for 6 years now, our daughter comes home so happy and says she had a great day! She loves going to school and summer annoys her as she just wants to get back to Evergreen. To us there is no better endorsement.
