We love this school. I have an 8th grader that just graduated. She began school there in the 7th grade. She loved it and she loved her teachers. The teachers there truly care. Mrs. Kay Helfrich the 8th grade teacher is the sweetest, kindest caring teacher, who really loves her students as if they were all her children. Mrs. Guymon is amazing. She was able to help my daugther to learn to love math. The graduation ceremony was so personalized and touching for all the parents and the students. My only wish is that I had been able to enroll her sooner so that she would have more time with this wonderful school. Our other daughter has attended since preschool and again we have had a great experience with the pre-K teachers and the Kindergarten teachers. We look forward to the next years for her with Evangelical. It truly does prepare these kids for the next step into High School and provides a strong foundation. I am so happy we have the means and the opportunity to give our children the value and experience of attending this school.

My child has attended this school from preschool to present (7th grade). All the teachers and staff have been excellent! They have been wonderful throught the years. I do have to agree with the comments on cliquishness, but not with the children with the Parents. If you do not "fit" into the small group of parents that associate with each other you will be excluded! I've left very upset a couple of times volunteering for certain activities. Feel like i'm back in High School trying to fit in with those parents. I can relate more with the kids they are more adult than their parents.

I am a parent and my two children have attended Evangelical since pre-school. My children love going to school at Evangelical. Both children will be attending Evangelical through the eight grade. They are receiving a high quality education at a reasonable price. Each year the school administers the Terranova test and my children have scored above average each time. In fact on the last test, my third grader had a total score of 95 and my fifth grader had a total score of 83. The teachers, principal, and staff do an outstanding job. Parents choose to routinely help at the school as needed. My children play basketball & baseball for the school, and they have made many friends in the process. I have seen my children excel at Evangelical both academically and socially. My kids "love their school" as they say. Since the school's enrollment continued to climb, the school expanded it's facilities a few years ago, and built an addition for classrooms and a new gymnasium and multi-purpose room as well. The school has excellent facilities and a wonderful gymnasium for a private school. I recommend Evangelical School & pre-school to my friends and family.

I have nothing but great things to say about the experience our children have had at Evengelical school. Educationally & socially our children have excelled. They learn in a loving christian environment. The teachers go above and beyond to give them a quality education. Most of the teachers offer tutoring in their free time if needed. There is a lot of parent involvement and I do not agree with some of the comments made in a few of the other posts. I could not say enough good things about the school & church.

I am a parent that has 2 children that attend Evangelical. My husband and I love this school and so do our children. They have both attended since preschool and will continue through eith grade. The staff is wonderful and caring. Children that attend this school are generally above avarege when they mix into the public school system. My oldest child has always scored above average on the Terra Nova testing and my youngest is too young to take it but I have total confidence she will be prepared when she is at the grade to start taking it. As a family, we appreciate all the teachers and school staff. We are extremely happy with our choice in schools.

I have one child in her first year at Evangelical and my wife and I have nothing but positive things to say about our experience. All the staff from the Principal to the employees in the office have always treated us and our child with professionalism and a caring attitude. We especially like the emphasis that is placed on the extra curricular activities and the religious foundation that the school teaches. We have made some very good friends with other parents in the school and have always felt included and welcomed. Not sure why some of the other comments on here claim that the school is "clickish". Face it, when you have a school with 500 kids and probably twice as many parents, you can't expect everyone to be best friends. That's just life. We have two more kids that will be starting at the school next year. Very satisfied.

I have to agree with other comments. Very clickish and they discriminate against people without a claim to fame. I like the curriculum. Either they dont see the clicks or they just care about the money. We left this school due to unfairness towards our child. In the end our child will lead with kindness and without discrimination. We are saving the $350 per month and investing it into our child's college education fund.

I'd have to agree COMPLETELY with the review below mine... the Principal truly cares, the teachers are wonderful, but the social dynamic needs to be addressed. I realize you can't conquer ROME in a day... but my child doesn't have time to wait for the evolution. Education begins @ home... and what some of these parents here have taught their children will not serve them to the greater good as they progress in life. Good Luck...

Great school BUT very click "ish" for both child and parent. If you don't fit into their groups you're left out in the cold.

My grandchildren love this school. They both have learned much academically. Better study habits, interpersonal communication, and respect for others is evident. I could not have chosen a better atmosphere for their learning and growth. All of the staff, show their sincere interest in each individual student. The envolvement and sincere interest in the students by the parents&grandparents is amazing . Extracurricular activities are numerous and seem to be growing every year. Thank you EES

Great School! There is great parent involvement at Evangelical, the teachers that I have dealt with so far are very involved with the parents about their child's education. The school has great pricing, gives a better education, and what I really like about Evangelical is beginning in grade K they have Spanish, Music, Computers, P.E., etc.. Not many schools offer this to the younger years! Hats off to all the Teachers at Evangelical.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
