Went to parent teacher conference for my child and sat down with the teachers and they all talked shared negative details about my child to me. What I was surprised is that they didn't have a positive thing to say. When my child left the conference, he was internally crying because he didn't hear not one positive thing about him. It is ok to give constructive criticism but I truly think it has to be balanced with something positive. Everyone has something positive.
The school overall is brand new and I think it has a lot of potential. I would like to see more diversity amongst the teaching and administrative staff.
I think it is hit or miss. Some teachers have the knowledge, but teachers seem to expect all kids to fit into adapt to their teaching style. Would be nice for teachers to really get to know the kids and what motivates them and drives them. All kids learn differently.
The school does a good job with leveraging technology. I do believe that since they rely solely on technology the district should invest in better laptops for the students.
The way homework is assigned is via google classroom. However, not all teachers utilize it. Would be nice it is was consistent. The cool part is that you child is able to access assignments from anywhere.
My son attended Evans this year as a new 6th grader to Evans. For this school only being open for two years, I was impressed with the organization and level of communication, etc. that occurred this year. The pod structure that they have set up works, as it creates a support system for the students. The teachers were very responsive to communication and really encouraged the kids to be indpendent, while receiving their support.
