The mission of the Evergreen Charter School is to nurture the
intellectual, physical, and social development of all students, many of
whom are expected to be from educationally and economically
disadvantaged backgrounds. The School 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. The School will foster individual growth and development
through the implementation of a challenging and comprehensive
educational program that emphasizes mastery of a quality K-5 core
curriculum that is aligned to the New York State Learning Standards and
based on New York 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 the School’s
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. The School will use a balanced
instructional approach and employ a workshop delivery model to provide
its students with a strong foundation in English Language Arts.
