We are thrilled to have our students attending Evergreen Mill. Our second grader and fifth grader have had nurturing teachers who have challenged them and cared for them. This school has quite a diverse population that is celebrated and supported. I love having my children learn to appreciate others for who they are, rather than by what they may or may not have. This kind of school climate is truly what we were looking for. We want our children to not only be successfully academically, but more importantly to be good people in life.
We are very pleased with Evergreen Mill Elementary. My child had absolutely extraordinary teachers here for kindergarten and first grade, and is now a bookworm. I can't thank those teachers enough. The principal has my admiration for quickly getting rid of under-performing teachers, and for listening to parental concerns. The school fosters respectful interaction with the students who come from disadvantaged backgrounds, and celebrates diversity. The art and music programs provide wonderful opportunities for the kids. The only thing I would change is the PE program, which mostly consisted of boy versus girl dodgeball. We have highly trained PE professionals, I would like to see them doing a little more teaching and a lot fewer violent games, and to nix the boy-versus-girl dynamic altogether.
