Evergreen Elementary School has a wonderful staff of caring people. I would hope all schools are of equal quality to Evergreen but I know this school is special. My child has only been enrolled here a short time but she is very happy with the teachers and enjoys attending school now where she didn't always feel that way. The school has orderly students that are and are able to provide a peaceful setting for the kids to learn in. My child has expressed many time how happy she is to be here

As an involved parent of two evergreen students I have found the staff, environment, quality of education, and community to be excellent. We are comparing this to private schools and Montessori programs and feel that for us, our kids are getting the best, local, engaged educational experience they could anywhere in WA.

My daughter's teacher lack's concentration and ability to concentrate to provide detail when guidance is needed. When grades fall, was told there was no time for a parent teacher conference. The academic standards are substandard and may be due to class size. Tests were given to determine school funding and graded with the wrong key. There was no problem sending out the results that everyone did badly but a huge hesitation in telling parents there was a mistake or even correcting the grading so the parents could actually know where there child stood.

The top notch Principal put together a strong staff that is able to meet the needs of students and community.

Evergreen strives to integrate best practices into it's learning environment. The staff is kind, eager to help and offers a very nurturing place to learn. The music program is outstanding and although we are far out on the Peninsula, there are plenty of opportunities for students to participate in extracurricular activities. Evergreen offers an After Our's program that allows students to have extra help with homework as well as participate in a variety of activities such as cooking, Spanish, science and harmonica. Overall, although it is small, Evergreen has a lot of heart.

It would appear that new teaching methods are installed before the old ones are completely understood. Test scores are very low.

About the tests


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.
