This school is absolutely amazing. I can't express how pleased our family is with this school. My daughter started going in 6th grade and is now at the end of 7th grade. She has really flourished academically and taken a true interest in her education. She has interests that I never expected including The Debate Team. It s so exciting as a parent to see the positive influence the school has had on my child.

This school is amazing!! I am new student to this school after transferring from MSE. I am absolutely thrilled about going to school each and every day. The students are so kind and thoughtful as well as considerate. The teachers are the best, they are ALWAYS there to teach and help you to be the best that you can be. This is an amazing school!

Evergreen, Colorado is known for its excellent schools, so it is hard to fathom a place for an independent school. Yet one look at the public schools and you soon realize that they are not that great. large class sizes, low taxpayer funding, 20th century teachers in a 21st century environment. We moved our daughter 5 years ago to ECDS and she has thrived at the school. The small class sizes, excellent curriculum, excellent teaching staff, and the extended school community make this an excellent choice for K - 8. The school has a 100% success rate in graduating students making Honor Roll in high school. This is a choice we would make again.

After reading the reviews, I am compelled to set the record straight. Evergreen Country Day School began as a preschool - Children's Center of Evergreen in 1971. My children entered the program in 2000 when it was Evergreen Mountain School (PS-Middle School). When a permanent campus location was identified and significant donations were realized, Evergreen Country Day School grew as a result. All three of my children were tremendously fortunate to have been a part of this wonderful school community. They are confident, academically prepared and socially mature due to the caring, nurturing environment, small class sizes and high expectations. The school has always delivered a top notch academic program and, beginning in 2008, a state of the art facility. My daughters have never been witness to or associated with bullying. The administration, faculty and staff provide a welcoming atmosphere that is unlike any school I have been associated with. I am proud of my children's success and the choice that I made to send them to this school 11 years ago.

Our family has just finished its third year at the school in both early childhood and elementary. Our two greatest goals were a strong academic experience and a strong social environment for our children. Our experience has been nothing short of outstanding. There are many areas that I could comment specifically on, but my greatest appreciation is of the individualized attention that my child receives on a daily basis. My children are excited and ready for a summer of rest, but will be ready and excited to return in the fall. So will I.

Excellent school, outstanding teachers, devoted leadership, and appropriately challenging program. I strongly recommend Evergreen Country Day School! We've been very pleased and will continue to send our children to the school for years to come.

I have had children at the school for almost 7 years now. The school is warm, welcoming, challenging and promotes creativity. The teachers are very approachable and, in my experience, have gone out of their way to create a feeling of family. What I most admire about the staff and administration is their dedication to character education, meaning honesty, integrity and a sense of honor. This education begins in early childhood and continues into the eighth grade. The administration deals with challenges to this appropriately and creates a teaching experience for our students. We love it there!!! And would not consider any other educational option in the area.

I have had children in this school for six years and despite the posting regarding bullying I have never seen any bullying, heard about any bullying and my kids have not experienced any bullying. Rather each of our kids have developed great friends and good social skills to deal with conflicts with their fellow students. Each of our kids have also had a lot of individual attention from the teachers who have been excellent. They have challenged our kids as needed, and supported them when needed. The environment is very supportive and welcoming. I highly recommend this school. Also the school has been around for over 20 years and was formerly called Evergreen Mountain School.

Evergreen Country Day School is an outstanding school. The academics are second to none, but even more importantly students at the school experience a sense of belonging. The small classes and supportive teachers have been a real asset in our daughter's education. We enthusiastically recommend ECDS!!

From the moment you step onto the campus, you are sure to feel it .the collective energy of students and faculty!! ECDS is an incredible school .and each semester/year the caliber of faculty and education continues to improve. It's a unique atmosphere of warmth, safety, and vibrancy. An undiscovered wonderland for Colorado children. I have 2 children at ECDS and wouldn t go anywhere else. Growing up on the East coast and valuing a child s education, I highly recommend Evergreen Country Day School.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
