About

Head of School

Welcome to Evergreen Country Day, a community committed to inspiring and equipping students to thrive.

Our small-by-design school brings the best out of every child. Intentionally small class sizes afford our faculty the time necessary to invest in relationships with each one of our students. Our relationships-first approach to education combined with our vigorous academics and first-class faculty and facilities make it no surprise that Evergreen Country Day students prove to be superbly prepared to thrive in high school, college, and beyond.

The next step in choosing the right school for your child is coming to campus to see Evergreen Country Day for yourself. While our website offers a compelling peek into our academic and extracurricular programs, in truth, time online cannot compare to time on campus. I invite you to reach out to us today to arrange a personalized tour and to take one step closer to joining a learning community characterized by curiosity and kindness and fueled by a love of kids, an insatiable idealism, and the steadfast belief that the children indeed are our future.

I am humbled and honored to be fulfilling the role of Interim Head of School for the 2018-19 school year. It is my number one priority to be dedicated to every student, teacher, and parent within our community while we continue to grow and evolve. I am eager to learn along the way and will commit to working tirelessly in partnership with each of you to serve our students.

Education is my heart, my passion, and my life. Over my 17-year career in schools, I’ve yet to come across a school as unique as Evergreen Country Day. When I joined Country Day six years ago as a Pre-K teacher, I immediately fell in love with the community and was filled with confidence and pride to work alongside such a caring community. Now, I still have the same wonderful feelings and am excited to continue to serve in this important leadership role.

My goal is to work with each of you to continue to cultivate a positive school culture rooted in peace and harmony. I also hope that my leadership style (one that rests on three core principles: responsibility, empathy, and respect of individuality) continues to help us build an atmosphere conducive to learning and support.

Please know that my heart, my ear, and my door are always open.

Sincerely,

Jennie Anderson
Interim Head of School
