Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation Reviews

As an EVSC student from kindergarten to senior year, I have overall had a fantastic learning experience. Within the three different EVSC schools I have attended, I have always been able to find a source of guidance and care from many of my teachers. Throughout high school, I have also participated in EVSC sponsored extracurriculars such as the Honors Orchestra. As a whole, my experiences have been positive as well as nurturing, and I owe my academic success to my mentors and my school's environments.

While I have had mainly positive experiences, I am also aware that my perspective is limited to the schools I have attended. Unfortunately, I am aware that my peers from other EVSC schools have had more issues with the administration and staff within the schools than I have. In the past, I have felt as if certain schools were at a disadvantage due to disproportional support from the district. Regardless, the EVSC demonstrated dedication to positive change and equal opportunity for all.

The Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation is a smooth and successful school system. They always provide amazing services to the students, while supporting the students mentally. They always make sure the students know what is going on, and alert parents when change is to happen. This system has been around for a long time, and allows little change to be made. If I had to make changes to the corporation, I would allow more room in the school budget to allow all the sports to be equal. I would also change the strictness of standard testing, which can allow students to focus on college more. I would also set a goal to focus on the individual student more, with creative learning and activities that will be enjoyed.
I have been involved with the EVSC for 14 years now. I am now currently a senior at Harrison high School and I would like to share my experiences with the EVSC. The corporation's elementary schools are amazing! The schools are always looking for fun and exciting things to do with the students to make school more interesting for them. The faculty within the grade schools is amazing as well! Everyone is happy to see families come in and out of the school and the teachers are always positive. The middle schools within the EVSC could be better. Most of the faculty within the middle schools is rude to both the students and public. When students enter the school, they will not have a positive attitude if the faculty and staff doesn't. Both the middle school's and high schools are very strict on dress code.
