We moved here 2 yrs ago and my children really adjusted well to the school. The teachers are wonderful and really try to make everyone feel comfortable and make it a nice enviroment for the children to learn in. The teachers really care about there students. There are even after school tutoring programs which the teachers stay after school to help their student catch up(they are not getting paid extra to stay after school). There is ALOT of parent involvement! They always have events for the parents and kids to enkoy together thatvis educational too. The teachers do a wonderful job keeping open communication with their students parents. I love this school and community!

Love this school. Teachers are friendly and the PTO welcomes you with open arms. I love that I can talk to my child's teacher anytime. My child is very happy here and loves waking up to go to school.

My child went to this school and felt bullied. I tried many times to get the principals to take care of this problem, but no results. He hated going to school every day. When I picked him up, he would be down about his day. The teachers seem to be caring.

We really enjoy Evans and feel as though the staff gives it their all. I would like to see more minority students in my child's class. She doesn't understand why she looks so different than most of the kids in her class. If there are 16 ethnic students in a grade level, it would be nice if 8 could be in one class & 8 in another instead of smaller groups spread out amongst 4 classes. Other than that, I can't complain. This community cares about the kids and their future.

This is an excellent school! This is our fourth year at Evans and I can't say enough positive things about the teachers and principal. Mr. Slater is fantastic with the kids, very involved and takes the time to stop in the hall and say hi to them by name. The teachers are very caring and truly enjoy teaching. I am not sure where the last review came from, it must be misplaced because it doesn't describe this school! Mr. Slater does not speak down to parents, he is a regular guy who is also a parent! It is a close-knit school meaning the teachers know all the students in the school and take an active role in their well being. The teachers, administration and staff work well together and encourage learning in a fun and exciting environment.

School does not work with parents. Principal speaks down to parents. Lots of clicks. Teachers encourage clicks.

I have 3 children currently enrolled here. We think the teachers are wonderful and my children have excelled very well. My youngest was in the PPCD class and didn't speak very well when she started now her vocabulary has improved and she is on her way to learning to read this summer, she starts Kindergarten this comming fall. The teachers care about their students and try their best to see them succeed. I know this first hand as I am an involved parent and volunteer in the classroom whenever I can. I.C. Evans encourages parents to become volunteers in the classroom. As parent involvement is your childs best defence against failure.
