This is out first year at this school, my son is in Kindergarden. I LOVE all his teachers, councilors, etc. His learning is amazing and they help so much with his ADHD/ODD and potty issues. They also always inform me on updates with him. ONLY issue we have had is the Principle. I never seen him smile, never look happy, never sound excited when a student says hi to him, or anything. AND we have had issues with him as well personally and heard alot of parents having issues with him. UNLESS this is just his personality, BUT bring a principle to these kids, no matter age or grade, he needs to be cheerful. Us parents even just got a email regarding the 3-5th graders how a few "these students will miss the party of celebration due to lack of effort". WHAT Principle seriously writes that!!! That is the ONLY issue we have had. Since we have had issues together, we do respect each other otherwise, as in if we pass, usually me, says hi or good day, etc, but I always have to say it 1st. I see him do this to ALOT of people.

I find it ironic that so many folks posting here complain about the continual fundraisers and the school not being properly funded when these same people are the ones that have voted against the district's proposed bond issues the last four or five years. The district has grown tremendously, and is vastly underfunded, the facilities are stretched to breaking. Yet the community has continually declined to pass badly needed bond issues to address the problems, and then complains about the problems. The teachers are dedicated, but they have not seen so much as a cost of living increase in their salaries for five years. These are professionals with college degrees, student loans to repay, and families to support. If the community wants a top notch school, then perhaps it should support the school. For what they have to work with, and the number of kids per class they have to manage, the teacher's do an amazing job.

Verbatim from the D49 official Falcon Flyer received 8/30/2011: "Overcrowding has been a hot topic in District 49. Falcon continues to be one of the fastest growing districts in the state. We currently serve about 14,000 students. This is perhaps the first year that our overall student population has not increased, but that does not change the fact that overcrowding continues to plague our district. Eight schools in District 49 are currently over-capacity. They include Woodmen Hills Elementary, Falcon Middle School,Falcon High School, Evans International Elementary, Springs Ranch Elementary, Odyssey Elementary, Ridgeview Elementary, and Skyview Middle School. Of the remaining schools, not a single one of them is less than 75% full...Teachers struggle when thirty or more students outnumber them..."

I have notice that those who have a problem with this school hold the belief that their kid is simply a kid and should not be corrected but others should. My grandson has started his Kindergarten year at this school and I could not ask for a better bunch of teachers. They try to make the student act responsible for their actions and inform the parents of the wrong doing of their child. I belief if more parents would be active parents their would be less problems with the children. This is a great school

my son attends this school, and i am a hearing impaired parent, so whenever there are parent /teacher conferences, or when theres need to talk to principal, or anything of that necessity, an interpreter was not provided, one time my son had an altercation with another student and i demanded them get me an interpreter which they did finally provide for this meeting, but at other times i must communciate by writing which i do not really feel comfortable with because i do not get communcation points across easily . the security is no good too, also the playground staff allows kids to hurt one another and they never bother to intervene, one time my son had been in trouble with another kid and they act like its our fault, further traumatizing my son . cant wait to move out of here and have him transferred.

My Daughter has attended the afternoon Kindergarten at Evans Elementary since January 09. I was worried that she was going from full day Kindie in WA to half day and that she would lag behind the other full time students. I have been amazed at how much she has learned in the short time she has been there. She LOVES to go to school, LOVES her teachers and is just amazing me with her knowledge! Her Teachers are friendly and always ready to answer parent questions and I have never had an issue with her not being supervised after school at pick up. We are super excited about the IB program and excited to see what 1st grade brings....

This school is an exceptional school. The teachers care about the students and students are able to reach their full potential. Every interaction I've had with teachers has been positive and encouraging. The IB program is amazing!

We are very disappointed with this school. They are judgemental and there is a lack of communication with the teachers and parents. We are leaving this school.

My kids are attending there now, I moved from another state and the one thing i definitley noticed is that there not so friendly . When i picked up my kids in there old school, i was greeted by name by the teachers and staff. there was always a staff member or teacher waiting outside to get your kids, even when your late by a couple of minutes. They worry that your kid is not completely reading in kindergarten which to me is minor, and you have to pay 200 dollars a month for your child to go to kindergarten on top of supplies and fundraisers and everything else. That is crazy. Paying for college but not kindergarten. I didn't pay anywhere else. The office people are very friendly and helpful but the teachers show less care.

Evans now has a security system that does not allow anyone in (except students). I think the sucurity is just fine for our children. Every school has fund raisers, no matter what district and the teachers care a great deal about the students. As far as the school district distributing the wealth evenly, they aren't any different than any other district in Colorado Springs. In fact, this school is small, but that doesn't mean it is lacking in educational needs. The interbaccalaureate program is making Evans appear on the map and I am very pleased over all!

I feel that they are pushing the ccap testing too much. All the focus is on the scores and not the needs of the children.

My daughter has attended this school the last four years. The school is horrible. The school district has neglected Evans and focuses more of its money on higher income developments. Every other month your child will come home with another fundraiser. The security in the school is very poor. You can walk right in the school and avoid being seen by the main office staff.

Very poor environment for the students. Classrooms are very small and packed. Too much focus on behavior on the playground and not enough guidance. This school is horrible and I can't wait till my child is out of it. The teachers don't seem like they really care. They care more about selling stuff than teaching our kids. I would not recommend this school to anyone.
