I welcome you to the Evergreen School! We are an independent Preschool-Grade 8 school founded 50 years ago in 1963 to educate children with extraordinary minds. Today our mission remains the same. We inspire and empower highly capable, creative learners to lead with curiosity, compassion and courage in an ever evolving global community.
Evergreen’s complex and challenging hands-on curriculum emphasizes global awareness, environmental stewardship and social and emotional learning. It encourages students to take intellectual risks and step out of their comfort zones. We want our students to think out of the box, to ask questions and to make discoveries about themselves and their world. Teachers foster a non-competitive classroom atmosphere allowing students to grow at their own emotional and intellectual pace.
At Evergreen students learn by doing and moving beyond the walls of the classroom. Teachers provide ways for students to connect with their natural environment through outdoor education trips and to connect with their broader community through service learning. Our students attain an appreciation of diversity through travel, study and a culturally and ethnically rich student population. Our focus on experiential education—culminating in the eighth grade global field study—brings education to life and gives our students a deeper understanding of other cultures and the world around them.
Evergreen students are happy, naturally curious, creative and highly motivated. They have many talents to share in the classroom, on the stage, on the athletic field and in the art studio. At the end of their Evergreen journey we want our students to emerge as compassionate and courageous citizens of the world.
I encourage you to explore our website further and to discover why this is an amazing place for kids to grow up. Talented teachers who form strong bonds with their students; students fully immersed in the joy of learning; and a warm, welcoming community are only a part of what an Evergreen education can offer. This is truly a special place, and we welcome your questions as you explore our website.
