Evergreen Country Day’s Elementary School cultivates a love of learning through creativity, curiosity, problem solving, critical thinking, and project-based activities. Students in elementary thrive through daily exposure to real-world tasks and high expectations from nurturing and experienced teachers. Our students benefit from our focus on cultivating character through community and social-emotional learning. Our small-by-design classes allow for differentiation for individual students, as well as early identification of different learning styles.
Elementary students also explore their passions in what we call “specials,” classes taught by experts in the fields of art, music, science, computer science, physical education, and Spanish. With weekly engagement with “specials” (and daily exposure to Spanish) along with a robust character education emphasis, students are academically and socially prepared for middle school and beyond.
Each year, students look forward to traditions we share together. Our graduates reflect on the fun they had during their elementary years. They remember: camping in our main campus back yard in Kindergarten, the Kindergarten and 1st grade 100th Day of School Fashion Show, hosting a reading restaurant in 2nd grade, visiting the Western Stock Show in 3rd grade, setting off volcanoes in 4th grade, running a full town for a day at the Young American’s Bank in 5th grade, and many other adventures. Our goal is to inspire our students to thrive, and we are equally inspired by our students every day.
