The school is clean and clearly has an open door policy. They are very parent friendly, but that's where the strengths end. Once the doors close and the parents leave, the problems occur. The teaching is ineffective. The teachers are not differentiating their instruction to facilitate a quality educational experience for all learners. Although the students are grouped to promote cooperative learning, it is clear that students are not given the opportunities to excel to an advanced level. This is wrong and crippling to the students who can do better. The writing program is either very weak, or it is not being implemented properly. Perhaps more professional development is needed. It is unfortunate, however, that our children have to suffer by not having quality writing instruction. Fortunately, I am teaching my child how to write summaries and essays. I am also teaching my child grammar, civics, and geography. I also supplement my child's reading and math. It is clear that the school relies heavily on the parents to do the teaching. My son will excel, but it won't be because of the teachers and staff at Everett.
Everett Elementary is a fantastic school. The teachers enjoy what they do, are motivated, strive for continual self improvement as well as school/community improvement. Parents are always welcome and are encouraged to participate in their child's education and development. The principal sets a tone of excellence for the school, is caring and approachable. She is a strong leader and respected by the children, teachers and community. Everett is not only strong academically but is strong developing the character of each child as well as fostering each child's strengths.
Everett is a wonderful neighborhood school with fantastic teachers and a warm feeling. The teachers really care about the children and go the extra mile to help each one become successful. The students are well prepared for the middle school and beyond. A loving, nurturing place!
We are so lucky to have a new Principal who is open to parent concerns and knows all the kids in the building. The teachers are amazing and my daughter is very happy at Everett School.
