Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation Reviews

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.

The Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation is a system full of extremely promising students bludgeoned by poor standards and budget cuts. The administrators fully expect teachers to be completely responsible for a student's success, neglecting outside factors such as gun violence in their neighborhoods or a poor home life. The teachers, for all their hard work and dedication, are brutally underpaid and underfunded. The administrators consistently make six figure salaries at the expense of the schools they run. This unfortunately leads to a much smaller percentage of the otherwise promising students to go on to college. Thanks to consistently poor management and superfluous meetings that take teachers out of classrooms, the students suffer the most. Without massive redesign of the system and better funding, the EVSC is doomed to the same cycle of underperformance and administrative error.
The think that mostly pleases me about the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation is that everything is in synchronization with the other schools. Everything is the same all across the administration and that everything that happens in those school is closely monitored. They are also very good at coming with progressive ideas to help the community, for ex : having a jean day and donating the money earned to corporations that help students in need. Another thing is that they provide for students in need very well because of their free textbook service and the free lunch services.
