Who We Are

Continuing in the Evergreen Union School District traditions – Evergreen Institute of Excellence offers TK-12 students sound, standards-based instruction within the flexibility of increased parental involvement coupled with state of the art standards based curriculum. Families remain key to the success of the school coupled with highly qualified teachers and sound standards based curriculum that meets the existing state standards. The teamwork that exists between the families, the community, the staff, and the students exemplifies an exceptional learning environment.
 
Evergreen Institute of Excellence relies on three critical elements to successfully educate the student that includes the parent, the student, and the highly qualified teacher. The parent educator and teacher develop the directional elements to help the student develop the personal learning tools to successfully complete the curriculum.
Students grades TK-12 typically have a strong parental leg of the triangle, with the teacher acting as a coach to the parent supporting curriculum selections and techniques. Students are empowered to seek out individual activities in order to expand their learning experiences.
 
This charter is an excellent fit for parents that determine homeschooling is the best option for their children and/or family and will be actively participating in their children’s education. Teachers and parents working together using appropriate resources will ensure each student maximizes achievement using the Common Core State Standards and California State Standards.
