This school needs a more diverse teaching staff. In recent years there has become a more ethnic diversity in Evergreen Patk which means there are minority's students of all ethnic backgrounds that attend this school. However, the entire teaching staff if Caucasian. Children of other races don't see teachers that look like them which causes a lack of understanding different cultures which is key to a great school. The teachers and staff say they want parents to be involved with their child's educational journey while at the school, yet the teachers don't contact the parents when a child might be falling behind in certain subjects. They wait until the semester is over and then discuss why a student's grade is below standards. If the teachers would communicate with the parents ahead of time I strongly feel the child's academuc challenges would improve. Overall, this school is okay but they need to seriously look at the diversity or lack thereof of their teaching staff!!!

Evergreen Park High School is phenomenal. It is a community school. The parents and staff care about the children and know the staff. There is a zero tolerance policy. I love it. It keeps the children, staff and community in today's world. Go Mustangs!

This is a great "All-American" high school. They have put a great deal of money into modernizing the school in recent years. The faculty are very supportive and really care about the success of the students. This school deserves way more credit than it gets; I encourage residents to take a second look at EPHS especially if you haven't seen it in a while.

EPCHS is like a family to my children. I believe school is what you make it but when you have dedicated staff, teachers and volunteers to help guide our young adults it sure makes it easier to follow by example and be good citizens that will be a positive example to our younger children in the village and beyond.

Evergreen Park HS offers a broad range of activities for students to participate in. Academically, the school encourages taking advanced level courses by offereing dual enrollement courses (college credit is earned in addition to HS credit). The faculty, staff, administrators, and board all work together to serve the best interest of the students and the communitty. The school has spent considerable effort and dollars improving the building/grounds and offering residents an excellant option when it comes time to select a HS. No school is perfect, however in terms of a public option, EP ranks very highly.

My child is in his second year at this school. Since he has been there he has nothing but good things to say about this school. To his knowledge he has not seen one fight or heard of any thefts in the school. No school is perfect, but for this to be a public institution it is very good academically. I would recommend this school to anyone. We love it!

It may be too soon for an opinion but I love this school so far. My freshman has attended a catholic elementary school and for the 1st time in 8 yrs she likes school. Is there any more satisfaction a parent can get besides that!!! The dual enrollment courses are great as well!

This school has good teachers and its has diversity. But lacks the communication with the minority students. My child loved her experience here, but school needs more info on the diffrent cultures.

I am not sure what the other reviewers are experiencing. My daughters educational and extraciricular experiences have been excellent. The school continually qualifies the senior class for millions of dollars in scholarship offers, and many classes qualify for dual gredits at the local community college.

The school overall is just ok. Check the web site, the lunch menu is for Aug. 06, the photos are from homecoming 2005. Using the block system is great. The after school activities are great!

The atmosphere at the school has steadily gone downhill. I feel that student safety is a real issue at this school with open fights and thefts happening each day. The teachers are very good but the quality of students has rapidly declined which will eventually cause the good teachers to leave.

Well, as a student of evergreen park high school i would say that the education there is great, but it's the teachers who don't fully fullfill every student's need.

Quality of academics is good overall.Advanced Trig/Algebra teacher needs to listen to his students more.If you are having Honor students having a hard time in this class, change the teaching approach or find a new teacher. Weighted and unweighted grades,the honor or AP students get all 'B's' for a final grade get a 3.0 GPA while some of the regular students get 'A's' but have much easier classes get a 4.0 GPA that is not fair. The school should support the kids that play other sports that are not sancation, i.e Hockey, tennis, fencing. Fencing use to be tauhgt in gym class. They use the excuse of insurance. The school has it for other sports it supports. Like most schools you see the same parents all the time. There is to much poltics going on at the school at this time.This is a good school,but it can be better.

Overall, Evergreen Park is a good school. However, I don't think that the school is changing as fast as it should in relation to diversity. The number of minorities in the school has greatly increased, but the school continues to caterer to the 'majority' white student body. This is going to have to change.

Evergreen Park High School is a well rounded high school for the area which is surrounded by well known private high schools-McAuley, Br. Rice, Marist. EPCHS's student population is not very large (940) which gives the school a tight-knit feel. Unlike other big h.s you are able to probably talk to everyone in your class (2006). The athletics is not as good-basketball, football-as previous years but they're still trying. The school is also becoming more diverse w/ more students transferring in but they are strict on 'actually living' in Evergreen Park. Even though many ppl dont know about EPCHS yet it will be a school with rank soon.
