I go to Evergreen and it's such a great school. There's so much spirit and the teachers go out of their way to help you. They stay after school, and many stay in during lunch to help you understand or get extra help. I'm in 2 high school classes as an 8th grader, and in a super challenging block class. They keep me very busy and challenged. I love this school!

EMS is amazing. Mrs. K is an AWESOME science teacher. I'm even friends with her on Facebook! Miss Perez is an ENTERTAINING history teacher. I'll NEVER FORGET the Mesopotamian cities we made. Mrs. Logan is an AMAZING choir teacher. Because of her, I plan to continue singing. I'm literally SPEECHLESS when it comes to describing Mr. Marais. He is such a GREAT science teacher and i LOVED running across the parking lot and field with my classmates and sliding potatoes through plastic!! I LOVE Mrs. Mcpeak!! She's the reason I met my best friend 1.5 years ago. Miss Milles (history) is so much FUN. Dr. Stewart is an EXTRAORDINARY principal, definitely the BEST!! At EMS I did the best when it came to grades and i LOVE visiting, and all the teachers remember me and yes, sometimes i even get hugs!!! :) I LOVE THIS SCHOOL!!!!!!

I have been extremly pleased with Evergreen Middle School. Dr. Stewart is truly a proactive, involved, caring and commited Lady. She is an outstanding principal! Most of the teachers I have dealt with have been the same, genuinely concerned with the education, and welfare of their students. Many of the teachers stay after school to help kids who struggle with curriculum. There is a Drama program at evergreen which is unusal with most area middle schools. My son has been active in the drama program for 2 years now, and met some of his best friends through it. Communication can sometimes be difficult with certain teachers, you may not get responses to emails, but you always have the option of speaking to Dr. Stewart, and I can assure you she will reply to your questions, and concerns in a very timly manner. Great job Dr. Stewart! Thank you!!

As a teacher at Evergreen Middle School, I have to say that this school is the best run school I have ever seen in my entire long career! The principal, Dr. Joyce Stewart is simply amazing. Her care and concern for students and staff shows on every child's face. I only wish my own four children could have had the opportunity to attend Evergreen. Parents should not hesitate to enroll their children at this fine academic location. This school deserves the highest of praises.

Dr. Joyce Stewart Really has turned this shool around. I do belive Evergreen is a good school. there are some teachers at this school who need to be replaced with teachers who care about there job. That would make evergreen a great school.

Wow! Compared to all of the schools in the area, Evergreen is definitely the best. It's obvious that all of the teachers here care about their students, and try to make each student do his or her best. I recommend this school to anyone who is moving to the area or looking for a new school!!!

Evergreen Middle school is a wonderful school. It is because of a mix of kind, caring teachers and a fantastic principle that the school was able to turn around. Dr. Stewart has motivated the staff to do their best and the students to strive to improve themselves. I'm proud to have my children attend school at Evergreen.

My child is going to Evergreen Middle School and both her and I think this an awesome school! Academic programs are GREAT! My child has joined in Choir. There is also Unified arts and band. They have sports teams 6th graders can not particapate in on Games but they can go to practices.They have after school programs, like help for kids who need help in certain areas in there school work can get help. The level of parent involvement is an A+ on a scale from F to A+ this an awesome school! I just know your kids will love going to this school, I just know they will love it! I know my child Allie loves going to this school I would grade this school a 5 star school... They also have awesome school activities!

In 2012-2013 Washington used the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, in writing in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The MSP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
