We've had our son at Evergreen for 1st & 2nd grade. Students and local neighborhoods are extremely diverse in their makeup - a virtual melting pot that brings difficulties which staff and the PTA work hard to handle. Not all are successful, but most have a strong desire to help these kids where they can. Title I, ELL & PAL programs schoolwide, a great Technology program & teacher, plus a Librarian is wonderful - encouraging kids in a way I've not seen by many librarians in past schools. Music program a bit lacking in my opinion... PTA is pretty active, although parent involvement is not always as good as it could be. The administrative staff is (for the most part) all new this year and AWESOME!
This is my kindergartener's first week at school. He has had little organized social interaction. His daycare has always been homey and low maintenance. Simon already does simple math with single digit numbers. He knows many words by site and can sound out many words. Unfortunately so far the only focus there has been on his behavior, which does, I'll admit, need modification for a complex social setting. My concern with this school is their apparent tendancy to look no deeper than an outburst, and I have yet to see his teacher try to discover what might 'set-him-off' rather, she simply asks what our discipline style is. She seems to be perterbed that we did not send her a ready made clone that would tow the mark. I am please that they offer full-day kindergarten classes, which seem to offer much more than a <3 hour day.
lack of parent involvement and overall effort. Parents (at least I wasn't) aren't kept informed. Unless yougo out of your way to find out you won't know. I missed some assemblies because I never received a flyer. The teacher didn't make sure all students had one. There are a few GREAT teachers here.
My child has attended this school from k-3. He has had a very good experience and has had nothing but wonderful teachers all the way through. I feel this school is doing everything possible as far as discipline and safty and are doing a good job with extracirricular activities. I am very pleased with this school.
My daughter had a hard time at her previous elementary school and I couldn't pin point what it was. She was acting out and misbehaving. But at Evergreen she was challenged enough to where her mind was on learning and not on over acting. Her grades went from c's to a's. They have to be doing something right.
I would not recommend this school nor the school district to anyone. The classes are overcrowded and the building needs a lot of improvement. The new principal is rude and does not have a clear outline of rewards and punishments. She singles certain students out for punishment, while allowing others to misbehave on a regular basis. Bethel school district does not make true attempts to improve students test scores.
I have had three students attend Evergreen, and a fourth one still attending. I have had nothing but positive experiences with Evergreen. The staff truly care about the children. I would recommend Evergreen to everyone. Keep up the great work!
My child has attended this school for two years. I would not recommend it. I had problems with a past teacher as well as several other parents. I tried talking with the teacher, but she was very rude and intimidating. I talked with the new principal regarding other issues this year. She was helpful while I was there, but never followed through or contacted me regarding the problems again. My children will not be attending this school next year no matter how close we might live.
