AWFUL experience! my kids teachers do not communicate at all, even when I send emails or letters. All this school really cares about are scores! the office staff is just beyond rude. Never a smile on their faces. I am so glad my kids are going to another school next year and We will not have to deal with this awful staff!

We Love Evergreen ! The administration and staff are very approachable and helpful. They are clearly visible interacting with students throughout the day. The teachers are Awesome! They do an amazeing job teaching and loving our students. There is not one teacher at Evergreen that I would not want my child to have. They truly welcome and desire parental involvement. They are always willing to communicate and address any concerns. All of my experiences at Evergreen have been positive. There are currently 1,029 students at Evergreen. With that many people, you are going to have individuals that may have a specific experience that they do not deem to be positive. Those people are certainly in the minority. Talk with other parents and interact with the students. Ask the kids how they feel about their journey at Evergreen. I would expect the majority of responses to be very positive. Yes, Evergreen does push certain areas of academics in order to meet or exceed the standards of learning that have been forced upon them, so I can see where the feeling like a number could come into play. We could fix that by letting teachers teach. Evergreen is a very loving environment!

We absolutely love Evergreen Elementary School. The teachers and staff are friendly and patient. They have a tough job dealing with over 1,000 sets of parents, but always seem to put the students first no matter what. If you have any questions just contact the principal or other administrators they have always been willing to work with my family. Highly recommend this school for parents who want their children to get a great education and have a pleasant elementary school experience.

Our family has been very impressed with Evergreen Elementary. The school is very large but there seem to be very few discipline problems. The test scores are very good, but there is so much more going on at this school. From the Back to School Picnic, to the Pumpkin Lighting, to the garden, to the free Diggity Dudes concert, it goes on and on. Students are recognized for good citizenship and are challenged in the classroom. The school also helps the community through a food pantry, clothes donations, and other fund raising activities. The PTA is great and many parents are very involved. Every time I have had needed to speak he has been avaiIable, very helpful and very friendly. I feel fortunate to be able to send my child to Evergreen everyday!

I'm happy to read the good reviews about Evergreen and surprised to see the negative ones. My experience has been great. The principal has been accessible and friendly. He works closely with parents and students. Parents are welcomed in the school, but are not allowed to roam the halls or interrupt the classrooms. I for one am grateful knowing that my child's safety comes first. Keep up the great work Evergreen!

Evergreen is an excellent school. My children really enjoy it going there. The staff is very helpful and concerned about the students. Safety is taken seriously. The communication from the principal is a big plus. We get messages from the school just about every week updating the latest school events. Great school.

This school is NOT parent-friendly! If you are an involved parent then you will have problems with their policy. I am a Henrico transplant and used to the school allowing me to walk my child to class on the 1st day. Henrico even encourages parents to pop up and do a surprise peek from the class door (not allowed to enter class on pop-ups so as not to disturb teaching process). I watched an emotional parent come to tears as she was stopped at the cafeteria when trying to walk her crying 1st grader to class on the 1st day of school. They treat the teaching experience like a business, completing ingnoring the human aspect. I agree with the other parent below that they chidren are treated as a number. If you are not coming to a scheduled conference or volunteering for one of their events then you will not have the opportunity to observe your child. They make parents feel like they are visiting a prison. Henrico exercised strict security, while still keeping a human aspect. There's also the "no-tattle" policy that made my child afraid to report problems to the teacher. 2nd graders shouldnt be encouraged to work out their own problems!!!

A great school if you feel your child with special needs should be in a self contained and institutionalized setting. A terrible school if you feel your child with special needs should be included with their peers and should have an education. Would never send my child there again; to a school that does not see my child as a student instead he's viewed by a label. NO INCLUSIVE EDUCATION at EES!!! Advocates, do not come to Chesterfield County!!!!

We have 2 children at Evergreen. It is a top notch school! The area surrounding Evergreen is a quite neighborhood, with no thru traffic. With the new principal coming in fall 2011 (who has his own children at Evergreen), the school has potential to shine even brighter than before. The Teachers are excellent and we are so fortunate for our children to have been taught by them. Evergreen has excellent scores. The PTA is very involved and has received many awards. Check out Evergreen!

I really do not like this school. The principal is completely unavailable to the parents. The teaching time is wasted with the ridiculous lining up and being quiet all the time. It's all about the test scores. This school is a huge disappointment.

The leadership in this school is lacking! Most of the teachers are great and are truly there to help the children learn. However, the administration does not support them. They even put in a vote at a PTA meeting to eliminate Recess in order to have more SOL time! Kids need to play! Bullying is an issue and it is not being addressed! If your child has any need for help with disabilities the teachers are the best you could ask for but that will soon change as the administration is not!

I have two children in EMES. A 4th grader and 2nd grader and we love it. We have been at EMES for two years. We left Meadowland Elem. which is the highest test scores in the area. I believe that the total educational experience is better at EMES than any other school I have been involved with.

The teachers at this school are great, my only issue is that they want to retain students to keep the SOL scores high so that they can stay accredited. To me this is totally unacceptable. I have 2 children in this school and both love it with the exception of a couple of teachers who aren't so nice to them. There are also issues where other children are poking with sticks causing children to bleed, the result being a time out. When are the parents going to be held accountable for their children. When are the teachers going to pay more attention to our children? I would not reccomend this school if you are looking for your childs best interest.

I have a child in 2nd grade & one child who just finished Evergreen to go to middle school. I have been more than happy at Evergreen. My children have gotten the best education and extra help that they needed. Evergreen is the best. I come from an Education background so I know good when I see it. The teachers & support staff are wonderful.
