Our world is rapidly changing as a result of access to information and innovation.
What we have learned about brain theory and pedagogy drive us to reevaluate what we can offer our students in preparation. Ultimately we want our students to become strategic, collaborative learning partners, who are innovative and competitive in a global community.
In Evergreen, we strive to create an environment in which students are at the center of their own learning and are intimately involved in defining the learning path. A place where:
• Teachers challenge students to take risks, unleash their curiosity, and exercise their critical and creative minds.
• Students are offered multiple pathways to achieve personal and academic goals.
This is the type of personalized learning environment that students deserve to experience in Evergreen Public Schools.

For Evergreen students in a personalized environment, the following elements are essential ways of doing business:
