Evendale is a school full of staff willing to sacrifice anything and everything to see that each child receives an education that is differentiated and meaningful. The staff tries hard to make a positive impact on all aspects of a student's education; academic, social, and physical. The administration has an excellent balance of warmth and discipline, which is still needed in this day and age. Community and parent involvment is encouraged and welcomed. Parents are, however, encouraged to be responsible for concerns and issues that the school cannot and should not address. If a problem with a student arises it is handled promptly, respectfully, and with a team effort. This school understands that a parent know his/her child best and wants to work with families cooperatively. Teachers work hard to continue their education and apply current, research-based methods in the classrooms. There is not a staff member at this school that does not keep their students on their mind or in their heart each day when they leave to go home. Evendale is a family; staff, administration, and sommunity and students alike.

When the school first started, everyone was excited about the possibilities. However, my child has attend all the years it has been open and I don't think it has gone that great. I feel my child is unprepared for her middle school years. Administration has always handled my problems promptly and with concern. The teachers, on the other hand, have a great deal to learn with communication. I don't find out problems with my children until it's too late. Teachers play favorites with children in the school and if you question them, they become defensive. You better belong to the "click" if you want your child to succeed. One of my children is advanced but they have done nothing to challenge that child. Therefore, my child is bored and starting to dislike school. I look forward to the time when they can move on and find a more supportive educational institution.

Evendale Elem School is the newest school in the Frederick County School system. Many of the teachers are young and some new to teaching when the school opened up. I found the attitude of the teachers to be good but I found the administration to be lacking in warmth or interaction with families or the children that they have contact with on a daily basis. Their attitude seems to be that the school belongs to them and that they will run it the way they like rather than the school belongs to the people of the community. They administration does not really believe in competition in any form nor do they believe in giving acknowledgment of good work performed by the children other than a certificate passed out in the classroom. Very serious and little fun.

I love the positive and clean environment of Evendale Elementary. The teachers seem very nice, and the second grade teacher that my child has (Mrs. Salvati) is fantastic. My child says that 'Mrs. Salvati is fabulous and very nice! We have lunch at a good time. The teachers and aids make sure we get drinks after recess, so that we don't get too hot. The school makes sure you get lots of education.' The school nurse is also awesome. She keeps up to date on everything, and informs you of any gaps that she sees in your child's immunization. She helped with my children's transition to this area immensely. I would recommend this school to anyone moving to the area. It is a new school (just ~2 years old) and is well laid out, with new equipment, and a staff that is working on teaming always.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) tests to assess students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, writing in grades 5 and 8, and science in grades in 3, 5 and 8. The SOL tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
