LOVE every teacher we have dealt with and the After-Care program Director is just lovely as well! Everyone has been so amazing!

Amount of homework: Agree

They have a perfect system for homework that allows the child to manage their time and gives the parent some leeway. I LOVE it!

My child came to Evansdale from a very small, private Christian school and he has just loved it. Everyone is super connected and friendly and the academics are just the perfect balance of challenging and engaging fun. So very glad that we found Evansdale!

They are becoming a Magnet, Language immersion, STEM-certified school. Principal is forward-thinking and improving the performance of the school. Parental involvement is strong. Strong PTA. Redistricting changing the demographics and dynamics of the school. Probably the best elementary school in the area.

In 2005 my family made the conscious decision to purchase a house here so that my children could attend Evansdale Elementary. This school has so many wonderful things to offer. The teachers are great across the board with very few exceptions. Administration does an amazing job working within the constraints of the county's dysfunctional school board. A strong fundraising arm (the Foundation), active parent base (PTA) help bring it all together especially in recent years where we've faced budget cuts, population shifts, redistricting and more. Test scores do not tell the full story of this school especially as current #'s are not up to date. New and innovative programs (STEM, French immersion) along with a great feeder pattern to Lakeside HS make this a really attractive choice for anyone looking to live and send their children to school in DeKalb county.

There is no argument that Georgia, and in particular DeKalb county, education is plummeting because of mismanagement issues. Evansdale is an exception. Redistricting brought in hordes of ESOL students. School management, teachers, PTA, and parents did a fantastic job of transitioning. Still a great place because of great teacher retention and parent involvement.

Evansdale Elementary is fantastic. It is a Magnet School and a STEM school. They have a great science program. The teachers and staff are excellent. Parent involvement is high. It is a great school in a wonderful community. They are starting bilingual classes with French Immersion for K in 2013. We love this school!

Great local elementary school with great parental involvement. School doesn't follow the trends of local Atlanta/Dekalb schools of poor management and declining education. School is top notch with great teachers and great results. STEM and science programs are very well handled as is the language immersion components



- a
We have two children in Evansdale and couldn't be happier with the quality of education and the community. It's cliche, but a strong education for our children takes a village and we are grateful for the village of Evansdale. Parents are involved, teachers work hard and we have strong and consistent leadership with Dr. McGuire. The school offers many programs and opportunities for the children and has done a lot of work to advance the STEM curriculum, foreign language and physical fitness as well as other programs that I'm sure I'm forgetting. The school has so much to offer - you just need to take advantage of it!

This is such a wonderful neighborhood school. The staff and administration are very receptive and the teachers are wonderful. There is a very active PTA and Foundation. Evansdale has applied for STEM certification and has a new Kindergarten French Immersion program. We are very happy our children attend this school.
