My children recently transfered from another school last year, so the upcoming year will their second year with Albertville City Schools. My daughter absoltely loves Evans and the teachers are great. I love the fact that the school offers so many activites. Great School!

I could never say enough good about this school! The faculty and staff are wonderful! All the way from the Principal, Nurse, Teachers, and Lunchroom- this is the best group of people for my child-She has learned so much and feels at ease with them! Thank you Evans- you all are #1 in my book- i wish she could take you with her when she goes to the middle school-

My child is in sixth grade and loves his school experience. The teachers in both 5th and 6th are really excellent and have given my child great learning experiences.

This principal cares about his students. The teachers are there to teach,and babysit-and they are gone as soon as the bell rings.I am sorry that at the current moment my child has to attend this school.
