The Evergreen School is an independent school serving highly capable students in preschool through 8th grade. We offer an academically challenging, creative and nurturing environment for our students. Our faculty use project-based, experiential learning to engage students and deeply integrate core academics with the arts, environmental sustainability, global citizenry and social/emotional learning.
Evergreen recognizes that children are highly capable in different ways—academically, creatively, emotionally or socially. We provide differentiated instruction to stretch students in all areas using a non-competitive approach to learning. We seek to nurture a love of learning and empower our students to be resilient, compassionate and creative.
Evergreen is an inclusive school, with families from diverse backgrounds. Our commitment is to provide a rich educational program that promotes respect for others, encourages social responsibility and positive change.

Statement of diversity
Our vision for The Evergreen School is for its members to value and embrace the dignity and diversity of all people. We actively seek and support students, families, employees, and trustees who bring a diversity of identity into our community.
We believe diversity is the range of identities that are represented in the school community. It is who we are. These characteristics include, but are not limited to: race, ethnicity, sex, national origin, geographic background, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, physical ability, learning styles, personality, family makeup, and socioeconomic status.
