I'm extremely pleased with the introduction of TeachingTools4kids. Some teachers are now taking full advantage of the (smart-board) technology. And the English Language Learners (ELL) are most often top of their class.

I have 3 children attending Evergreen School and I am getting an out of district transfer. I highly suggest you find a better school for your children. As this is easily the worst school in town. The principle is unconcerned with his pupils and the teachers and yard duties are very harsh to the children.

I think evergreen shcool is a good school. My child enjoys the after school program they offer. If do have a little disagreements about some issues but my experience is to nip it in the butt before it becomes a problem.

Evergreen is not that great of a school. The vice principal is not very concerned about extracurricular activites. There only is a few programs. It needs to have a better learning enviroment and more oppurtunities.

My son has been attending Evergreen Elementary since Kinder. He is now 9 years old and in the 4th grade. His teacher this year is one of the best teachers there. She really cares about her students, she contacts the parents at the first sign of any kind of trouble. She will basicly go to any link she possible can to help your child. The sad thing about Evergreen is there are only a few teachers that really care about the students. They have a slogin 'No Child Left Behind' Well they really need to find one they can stand behind with proof.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
