My child has been going to Evergreen for two years now. I can't remember him complaining a day about his teachers. He is a part of the excellent Gifted and Talented program that goes on in the school. The 'GT' program, as it's called, really challenges the students there. The teachers themselves are involved with the students there and I feel assured that my child is going to a safe environment every weekday.

Evergreen is a great school. It provides various opportunities for the students and has an atmosphere of respect and dignity. Evergreen follows the five Community of Caring Values: caring, respect, resonsibility, family and trust. The administration, Student Body Officers, Cheerleaders, and PTSA work together with the student body and play an important role in the leadership of the school. Evergreen's mission is student success, and not a day goes by that they don't strive to fufill their mission.

Evergreen is a terrific school. The teachers are excellent to the students and teach their subject with accuracy and knowledge. I have had the pleasure of working with many of the staff at Evergreen and have found that they are welcoming, friendly and willing to help at all costs. The principal is great to work with and the kids seem to really like his leadership and respect him. I enjoy working as a parent with this group of teachers, staff and administrators and look forward to next year and years to come.

Evergreen's a good school. The students can be a little 'clique-y' and parents are often treated by the administrative staff as though they are intrusive and tolerated. Being a parent who expects to be involved in any decision a school makes with my child, i have witnessed that some staff seem to be confused as to just who is responsible for raising the child and who chose education as a paid profession. At the same time, the teachers seem very competent in their respective subjects and are willing to talk with parents one on one anytime. My student at evergreen seems to regard the teachers and counselors with a great deal of respect and, naturally, learns more from those who consider themselves professional instructors and not babysitters. Fortunately for us all, there are not many of those to be found at evergreen.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Utah used the Utah Criterion-Referenced Test (CRT) to test students in grades 2 through 11 in Language Arts, in grades 2 through 8 in Math, in grades 4 through 8 in Science and upon completion of certain courses in grades 8 through 11. The CRT is a standards-based testing program, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Utah. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
