My children attended this school while we lived in Washington and they really enjoyed it. Evergreen Forest is very welcoming and open (after stopping by the office of course). The Principal is by far the best I have known, the teachers and the school staff are great as well. The curriculum is well rounded, they have enrichment programs, a track team, band and orchestra. This school is a true neighborhood school that brings the community together.
I feel as a parent they really listen to me and my kid. The principal is wonderful and really response to any questions quickly and remains engaged in my kids education. My daughter loves to go to school and that means a lot as a parent of a little one.
Evergreen Forest in the last 6 years went from being a good school to becoming an Award winning school in Washington State, for their Achademic Excellence in 2009-2010 scores. Our neighborhood school scores the highest in all of Washington State out scoring our neighboring Olympia area schools. Our Principal offers leadership in a way that promotes diverse student population to excell!!!
This is my daughter's first year at Evergreen Forest, and I have nothing but good things to say about it. She loves getting up and going to school. Her teacher individualizes the education experience to meet her needs and challenge her, and she has great friends and feels safe there.
I love this school so much and my daughter has only been here for half a school year! She loves it too and can't wait to get to school!!! She also thinks Ms. Morris is AWSOME TEACHER!
EF is a great environment to foster a love for learning in any child. I feel my kids are safe and getting a great education from people who really care about them. The PTSA is really hard working and supportive of the teachers, children, staff and parents. All in all, it is the best school in the district.
We recently moved to Ct. and I must say, You don't know what you've got til it's gone. The faculty at EFE is absolutely amazing. They are professional, helpful and knowledgable. I really do hope to find another school with faculty that has the same values and dedication as EFE.
I have a second grader at EFE. She loves the school, as do I. The school offers a multitude of volunteer opportunities and PTSA involvement. All the staff are friendly and helpful, the principal is wonderful! She truly cares about the school and each student and the environment she creates there. We are moving out of state soon and will deeply miss this school and all the friends we've made. ---Michele Fox
My son is a second grader at Evergreen Forest. I am so pleased with the staff at this school, from the classroom teachers, specialists, principal and support personnel. I have volunteered each year and have also been involved in the PTSA. This enriches my child's experience as well as my own. Evergreen Forest encourages parent involvement and my son's teachers understand him as an individual child. I can only pray this positive experience continues as my son moves into the higher grade levels. Marialyce Steinberg, parent
Mrs. Rinear at this school (Kindergarten) was phenomenal! Personable, in charge of her class, and such a wonderful teacher. My child learned a lot in her class and we miss her so much now that we are at a different school.
Being new to this area evergreen made me feel safe, my children safe,and the teachers were excellent. Parents were highly involved and the teachers made sure that this was made possible. This is a school that i highly recommend, a place where you and your children can belong.
Although my daughter is now in high school, I still volunteer in several classrooms and serve with the principal (Karen Johnson) on several committees. Mrs. Johnson goes out of her way to ensure her building and staff provide a warm, nurturing environment which includes all children, parents, and community members who wish to participate in supporting education.
My first child started at EFE in 1990 and my last one is still there. The staff (principal, teachers, aides, office, custodians, etc) are all wonderful. Test scores continue to soar. The PTSA is one of the strongest in the district. They are active and have done a great job for many years providing family centered activities, educational assemblies, bringing authors in, providing books for reading achievments, buying new playground equipment and are very welcoming. This is great school with great kids, great staff, great families, and great volunteers!
Evergreen Forest is a very warm and nurturing learning environment and has given my children an excellent and positive learning experience. The staff there is extremely devoted to teaching and gives each student the individual attention they need. They also have a wonderful family support system and a devoted hard working PTSA.
The school has a friendly atmosphere. The office staff and teachers are friendly and professional. The principal is available and helpful. My children love going to school everyday. There is a focus on academics and they foster the love of learning.
Evergreen Forest was one of the best elementary schools my children attended - that was in 1988-1992.
There are a lot of opportunities to be involved at Evergreen Forest however there is a lack of organization in the PTSA. And I like that I am made to feel welcome in the school at all times.
