My daughter has been at Evans for 3 years now, and we have loved every one of her teachers. She just completed the second grade, and was actually sad about summer coming and no longer getting to go to school every day. They are obviously providing a wonderful environment for the kids there!

This is my daughter's 2nd year at Evans and it has been a wonderful experience. She is in 1st grade and has excelled in academics. Her teacher last year and this year are great and she enjoys going to school. She is an AR reader and I love this program to challenge and push her further. We love Evans!

I find the school very good in taking of kids education needs. My daughter has been in Evans for 2 years and all teachers have been great so far. I have no complaints.

The school does not follow state law for student to teacher ratio. The school always has three or four extra students in class then what is allowed by state law. Look at the test scores history on this page, you can see the decline of the school slowly as the free lunch kids increase. The comment I read about the Section 8 housing is in line with the decline of the test scores and is valid to some degree. Anyway the communication is ok, but the administrative staff always seems to be reactive and planning for events are not very coordinated. The teachers like all government schools are just teaching to the CommonCore standardized test. If the subject or topic is not in the test then your child is not taught it. The whole school years focus is the standardized test not learning. Honestly its not the teachers fault they seem to be being pulled in all directions by their management, union, politicians, and corporations. So Evans is a Ok school, your child will focus on memorizing standardizing testing and fundraising but as for independent critical thinking skills look elsewhere if you can. (homeschooling or private schools)

My Kindergarten student had a wonderful experience at the school. The teacher was very creative and made my little one's learning experience fun. She looked forward to every day and was sad when the year ended. As for the staff, they learned who I was very early on and made me feel at home. My only criticism would be the after school programs, which I felt were a little lacking.

Evans is a decent school, with good teacher/student ratios. It was a GREAT school under previous leadership. However, the new principals are floundering, creating policies that don't allow you to lunch with your child (1x week only), and they do not do a good job of keeping parents informed and engaged. The Gifted program is a joke - it is only 1x week, on the "short" day. So, my child is bored the rest of the week, and likely to disrupt the others due to boredom. The front office staff has been rude to me, and to other students or parents who have come in while I've been there. We used to be excited to be at Evans and are now looking at other options.



- a
Awful place. Teachers sulk and complain. Students bully each other relentlessly with no consequences. Parents bully the teachers and administration. There is a complete lack of boundaries between teachers and parents and they can often be overheard gossiping together which makes for an incredibly uncomfortable environment. The inmates are running the prison.

My children have had a great experience at Evans. We have had children at the school for 7 years and have been very pleased by the teachers and programs.

First and foremost. This school discourages parents from wanting to be involved from its total unfriendliness. It is run like a prison. Drop your kids at the door, and do not even think about coming within 25 feet of the front door. Do not try to give the administration or PTA suggestions, as they are unwelcomed. I have even been yelled at by a "paraprofessional." Other parents have been yelled at by other staff members. Teachers are hit or miss. They assign you one day a week you can eat lunch with your child, and only that day of the week.

You know I believe that this is a good school. The staff is very friendly and courteous. They seem to really care about the well being of the children. After reading one of the postings left I was just blown away and not in a good way how unbelievably stereotypical people are. You know what its not the new complex that was built just bexause they accept hud. That doesn't five anyone the right to blame the people who lice there. So with all due respect shut up! It is not a bad school and don't blame others for yopur misfortune!
