Not a school that prepares students for collage! It was very easy for our kids to get A's but not so easy when they enter Collage!
This school is great if you just want to get by in life. But if you want to learn or ask question well you better find a different school. Just look at all the kids that live here and don't attend this High school. Also check how many kids not only go to collage but complete with 4 year degree?? In less then 10 years? Scary place but great Dr--s! So glad to get out of this school.
Our two youngest have had the advantage of growing up in Jeffco. EHS offers tons of opportunities because of passionate teachers and involved parents. Arts & Music are very professional, sports/cheerleading/poms have great participation. The school partners well with Red Rocks and Warren Tech for things it doesn't provide, This is a top 20 school in Colorado and it shows.
This school is terrible and cliquey. The teachers seem to have taken on the stuck up attitude that the overly rich community of Evergreen all possess. If you want to do well here, you're gonna have to find a way to work your way into its screwed up political dynamics. You won't be noticed unless you do so, by students and teachers alike. Beware of this 'school'.
This school is fantastic, you are going to encounter the odd issue just as with any other school, but overall there is not a lot to complain about. Teachers are passionate and generally involved in their students learning. The curriculum can be as rigorous as you'd like it to be, honors and AP classes being much more challenging than regular classes, but both are good for the students they aim to teach. Yes diversity is low, but that's just part of living in Evergreen, if you live here you know that. Overall, the school provides a great environment in which you can thrive, but as with most things, it is what you make of it.
This is an amazing school! My kids have been to private schools and Evergreen is better than a private school. Excellent teachers and all the staff really care about the kids.
This school has been great for my Daughter i had her in a private Catholic school in middle school and she was struggling and just did not quite fit the 'mold' she's always been a social butterfly, and at evergreen she has great friends and her grades have improved by a landslide!
I agree with the student that posted yesterday - This school is awful. I have had the phone hung up on me several times by office staff when trying to reach my kids, and some are very rude and unprofessional. School personnel here obviously 'could care less' about parents too.
This school is awful. Their are so many unnecasary rules and regulations, and the students have their freedom stripped away. The administrators only seem to want to bust the us students, and always assume that we're doing something wrong. Most teachers just 'teach to test' and could care less about their students well being. The teachers and administrators are rude, and unproffesianal.
Evergreen High School is the great combination of a small community, very active parents, a dedicated teaching staff and an 'excellent' rated school. I have had kids in private schools and Evergreen High and they flourished at Evergreen. I love it.
Poor school as far as regular classes go, honors and ap classes are decent. Sports are fine and quite competitive in certain sports. Student population isn't diverse at all. Students seem sheltered due to the remote location. Parents have too much control over the workings of the school.
Excellent AP program. High level of parent involvement. Sports lack somewhat because of the remote location.
EHS provides great opportunity for all students, in most areas. Integration of new students into the school's societies is somewhat lacking, though. So breaking into the 'cliques' may be difficult for students new to the area. I am impressed with the teaching staff, and the counselors seem genuinely involved with the students under their guidance.
Academics are extremely limited. Most all of the science and math teachers cannot teach well. Parents run the school, students and teachers have no say. Very good social studies department.
Poor scheduling of classes and programs. Office personnel rude. Poor funding of programs. Not happy with this school. Kids who take atheletics should be able to have it for thier class and get creditability for it.
Good academic programs not enough AP options. Decent sports and arts programs and some extracurricular activities. Parents tend to be very involved on average.
EHS is a good school, every chance is given for students to prepare for the college. On the down side Evergreen is small and not very diverse.
