Totally agree with the school being too strict about making it to classes. My child is a 6th grade student with ADD and there is not enough time given at the end of class to write down assignments in their planner and pack up as these type of things take longer for a student with ADD. Throughout elementary school my child always had enough time to copy down the next days assignment but to date there literally nothing written in the planner as there is not enough time. I know no school is perfect but this is a simple fix. Just give sufficient time to pack up and students will be able to make it to class on time (and don't penalize the first 2 late minutes).

This is my daughter's first year in middle school. Lots of work, lots of new teachers, lots of new friends. So far so good (even with lots more homework:)).

I am a middle school student, and I like this school, but I think this school could improve in how strict they are on getting to class on time. You get detention if you are a second late. I'm not exaggerating. But I do like the teachers. Some are good, and some are so-so. It is very overwhelming for an incoming 6th grader, and even seventh graders. But you get used to it. They start at 8:00, and buses come before 7:30. (They are crowded, unless you get to the bus early.) You should know that the teachers are very strict, but they're okay. I like that they have a good library and the teachers are good depending on who they are. But overall it's a good school, even though there are a few cons. Good luck!

This is a fantastic school! We transitioned our son here in 7th grade from having been in a small private school for special needs. He has high functioning autism and he has transitioned here very nicely at the end of his 7th grade year. The school is a nice size, with under 800 students. The staff is wonderfully responsive. Suzi Swanigan and Vice Principal Balicki are most impressive and should be up for teaching awards. They watch out for the kids and are quick to respond to any concerns we have. They have made the transition easy, and he is confident and successful, having the best public education experience of his life this year!

I attended the school for three years and they were some of the best three years of my life. There is a great faculty in place and countless activities to sign up for. It prepared me tremendously for high school and I am now graduating from the University of Washington with a degree in finance.

This is an absolutely terrific school. They have a superior staff, incredible principal, Great disciplinary procedures, and received terrific testing scores. Many sports are offered, and I continue to be more and more impressed with the curriculum.

I used to be a student at EJHS and I have to say this has got to be one the greatest schools I have ever been to. It has great teachers and friendly students. However there are some down sides. For example the principal is not really 'involved' in the students lives it is mostly the Vice principal that does every thing concerning the students,and some teachers do choose favorites causing some kids to feel left out.Also it is better to take the advance placement classes because the normal classes don't came anywhere close to where most schools teach in the east of the US (I know I used to live there).However this school does offer recognition for every student at lest two times the whole school year. Also it offers great clubs and sports.All in all this is an average Junior high school with great people. ~Student~

I attended Evergreen Junior High for 3 years, before moving on into high school. This school was horrible. Most of the classes were boring, even in higher level classes. The student body at times seemed to be divided between students who have a lot of money and those who don't. I did not feel safe here, for I overheard conversations about plots to kill others. Also, walking through the halls I would often here statements like 'I hate this place'. It felt truly wonderful to graduate this school. There are hardly any activities to do at this school - there are sports but not a wide variety. I was in band, that was alright but boring. Also, I was in honor society which also did not do much. Just for an idea of how boring this school is: the most exciting thing I can remember happening was some stinkbombs going off.

EJH is a great school. Ive been going there for three years now ( im in 9th grade). It is amazing. The staff are the greatest I have ever met, and are very helpful. My GPA has maintained a solid 3.6 while I have been here.

Evergreen Junior High School is an amazing school! I am so glad my child attends this school. My childs grades have increased by at least one or two letter grades. The teachers at EJH are incredible. A majority of the teachers there have been working there ever since the school opened.I have often talked with my child about the faculty, curriculum, etc. I continue to be impressed with how well the tearchers teach and take time with their students to make sure they understand everything. Not only do teachers take time with their students in the classroom, but they also have what is called Homework Club which is an after school program to help kids with homework and schoolwork. The principal and vice proncipal have made sure that everything in this school is safe and orderly. They have personally taken care of any problems that have come up, which are few.

I have gone to Evergreen Junior High School for two years now. I love going to EJH because I feel like I am actually learning something there. At my old school, the teaching was awful. When I first attended EJH I immediatley noticed a difference in the teaching. My grades went up at least one-two letter grades! I feel that the teachers at EJH really care about their students and are top quality teachers. Almost every teacher at EJH has a homework website that students can log onto to see what they have missed. Also, the students there always know that if they need help they can always go to a teacher. Not only are the teachers great, the principal and vice principal are top notch. They personally oversee what is going on in classrooms and make sure that EJH is a safe and enjoyable environment.

Evergreen Junior High is the not a good school in our opinion. Most of the teachers except for one teacher act like they don't care about the children and are not willing to help with a child that is struggling with the class subject. My child has only had one teacher that cared out of three years of attending EJH. The staff talk great but once you get to know them, all they are is a social club. We are highly disappointed overall in this school. Be careful about letting your child attend EJH if your child struggles with any topic of study. They will not get the help nor encouragement to try to succeed. We are really happy that our child is out of this school. This was the worst experience that our child has had with her education. Washington state needs to look more at EJH's performance.
