The mission of Evergreen Charter School (ECS) is to nurture the intellectual, physical and social development of its students. ECS will ensure that students of varied cultural and social backgrounds and different ability levels achieve their academic potential while developing a positive sense of self-worth. ECS will foster individual growth and development through the implementation of a challenging and comprehensive educational program that emphasizes mastery of a quality K-6 Common Core curriculum that is aligned to the New York State Learning Standards and based on New York State curricula guidelines. Additionally, instruction in a second language, i.e. Spanish, and integration of content regarding Hispanic history and culture will be important parts of ECS’ curriculum. The school will feature enriched arts and physical education programs, and it will foster healthy life choices within a child-centered school environment that places a premium on environmental education and conservation of resources. ECS will use a balanced instructional approach and employ a workshop delivery model. The school promotes: respect for self, respect for others and respect for the environment.

I promise to respect myself, respect others and respect the earth’s resources.
