Welcome to Evergreen Local Schools
By Superintendent Jim Wyse
Welcome to the Evergreen Local School District’s Website. As you browse through our site, I hope you find the information you are searching for. If you have a smartphone or other device, please consider downloading our District App to receive updated school information via push notifications. Our new District App should be released around the middle of September.
I enjoy serving as Superintendent of Evergreen Local Schools and would like to share with you a few reasons why. In researching superintendent openings back in 2009, my main objective was to lead a district that was a good fit for me. I wanted to serve a school system big enough to provide its students with a variety of educational and leadership opportunities, but small enough to care. I believed it then, and believe it even more now, that with an enrollment of approximately 1300 students, Evergreen is the perfect size school system located within a caring community.
In addition to having an ideal enrollment size, the location of the school in the center of the district implies it is the hub of the community and that education is highly regarded. School districts with modern buildings offer educational environments that are conducive to learning, which also shows strong community support for its students. Evergreen has excellent school buildings and athletic venues designed to meet the needs of our students, teachers, and community. Our professional staff members, facilities and up-to-date technology equipment provide students with quality classroom experiences and numerous curricular, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities designed to promote teamwork and build leadership skills.
In my search for the “perfect” district, my primary goal was to identify a school system that strives for academic excellence. In recent years, the Evergreen Local School District raised its performance level from Continuous Improvement to Excellent with Distinction. Evergreen’s positive academic reports suggest a community and school partnership driven to help students learn. This drive to achieve and the value of an excellent education cannot be overstated. Evergreen High School graduates leave us with a good foundation to enroll in college, join the military or enter the workforce.
Thank you for visiting our website and reading my welcome message. I hope you were provided with a glimpse into our school system and what it has to offer our students. I am grateful to serve a school district and community that places a high value on its children and their education.
