EVCS believes that all students can and will learn at high levels when provided with the right learning conditions.


Who we are

  • We are passionate about social-emotional learning and believe it is as important as the academic curriculum, and children must meet with social success before they can achieve high levels of academic success.

  • We have a strong belief in social justice and believe that every voice matters. We value diversity and a wide variety of perspectives. Our leaders are committed to preparing students to be critical thinkers who use their voices for active civic engagement.

  • Our students are exposed to a strong academic program that emphasizes social responsibility, arts integration, multiculturalism, and community alliances.

  • The EVCS community values relationships with our staff, students and families.

  • Our students experience academic success in an intimate, peaceful, and diverse school community that appreciates different learning styles.

  • Students know that they are valued and respected, and each one of them can contribute to school life.

  • We put students first - all decisions are made around what is best for students.

  • We act with urgency - we set a plan of action with urgency in response to student outcomes and needs.

  • We always seek to be better - we believe seeking feedback and professional growth directly impacts students’ growth

  • We work as a team - we collaborate to achieve shared goals.
