Evergreen elementary provides the most supportive environment you could ask for your children. Our son has flourished socially and academically as a result of the amazing Evergreen team of teachers, students, and parents.

I can't say enough good things about Evergreen! I have a 3rd grader and Kindergartener going there and have been involved as a room parent for the past three years. You can rest assured that if your child(ren) goes to Evergreen, that they will have the best experience. The teachers are very kind and really go out of their way to make sure that the children feel comfortable and are understanding the curriculum. The staff at Evergreen will always greet you and welcome you to visit any time and ask questions. There are always volunteer opportunities that allow you to be with your child in their classroom environment. I give this school the highest rating!

As a parent, I feel that my 3 children were very lucky to study in such a loving, encouraging, and caring atmosphere. Kids are always encouraged and are never talked down to. The sense of the school community is very strong! I was especially touched when my child with medical needs was accommodated beyond my expectations. I have to mention the wonderful nurse who works there. She would make a hundred steps instead of one to make sure the children are OK and safe! Overall, I consider ourselves lucky to have such a wonderful school in our district!

We moved from NY to NJ, mainly because of schools there. Our child went to first grade. So far, we are in love with his teacher, she's absolutely great in all respects. WE are being constantly updated on what's going on in class, on our child's progress. I could never imagine somuch attention and love from a public school teacher.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 New Jersey used the New Jersey Assessment of Skills and Knowledge (NJ ASK) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in language arts literacy and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in science. The NJ ASK is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New Jersey. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

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.
