The Evergreen School

We believe that students are encouraged to be responsible for their own learning in a challenging, supportive environment.
We encourage a commitment to life-long learning.  The learning experiences build confidence, independence and interpersonal skills.
Student learning inspires the students to use their strengths in a responsible way to contribute to the invention of the future.
Evergreen's curriculum is designed to nurture childrens' advancement through the progressive stages of social and intellectual development. Students are presented with a wide variety of experiences and materials.
They are encouraged to develop confidence and skill in all areas, to find challenges, and to test their talents in new and original ways.
As they mature, students are expected to take increasing responsibility for their learning.
Committed to the development of the whole child, Evergreen teachers also provide opportunities for the growth of positive self-concept and awareness of self and personal values.
The school community has a family atmosphere which is expressed in close relationships between teachers and students.
By balancing a program of strong personal development with an expanding focus on the world, Evergreen fosters an appreciation of individual and cultural.
An Evergreen education prepares students to make a positive impact on the future.
Students are expected to pursue excellence, both academically and personally, and to show concern and respect for others in the world in which they live.

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.
