Evergreen Middle School serves students in grades 6-8 in the Evergreen Local School District. The EMS teachers, staff, and administrators work everyday to create innovative pathways that empower students to positively impact the world. EMS students engage in an academic curriculum that helps prepare them for high school and beyond.

It is our mission to help every child feel welcomed, connected, and part of the EMS family.


A Word from the Principal 

Hello Evergreen Community!

I am more excited than ever to welcome students back into the building for another great year of learning!  The COVID school closure made the building way too quiet for me, and I truly missed seeing and interacting with our students. The 2020-21 school year will look different from previous years as we all take the necessary steps to ensure the safety and well-being of our students, staff, and families. Rest assured, I speak for the entire staff when I say it is great to have children in the building again!

This year, we welcome two new staff members to the EMS family. Hannah Vaughan is our new intervention specialist and Natalie Miller will be teaching 8th grade Spanish for high school credit!  We are excited to add Ms. Hoellrich and Ms. Miller to our team!

Thank you for visiting the Evergreen Middle School webpage. I hope you find the resources listed helpful and informative. If you have any questions, concerns, or you would just like to talk, please feel free to contact me at 419-644-2331 or at BRuffer@evgvikings.org. I am here for the students and families of this great community, and I look forward to another great year at Evergreen Middle School. Go Vikings!
