The teachers at Evergreen Park High School all have high teachings and it is very well reflected through thier teachings. The teachers go above and beyond to help their students, for example, if a student is in need of extra help or has missed a test due to an excused absence, most of the teachers will allow test retakes and provide additional information and examples for the current or past curriculum. Students are encouraged to raise their hands if they have questions and often say "No question is stupid," as long as the question is in along the lines of the lesson being taught. Over the years I attended this high school, the students were very fortunate to be exposed to and use new technology for educational uses. Smart boards, iPads, and high tech calculators were available for uses, such as, lectures, lesson teachings, and practicing example problems for any curricular course. Attending Evergreen Park HS has well prepared me to move forward onto higher education and I am very grateful for that!

Some members of the staff truly care for the students and work really hard to give them the best education possible in the best place possible. There are many ways to be involved and the majority of students are at least in one club, activity or sport. Also, the facilities are updated and contribute to good learning. However, some of the administration is cold and removed, seemingly uncaring for individuals and more focused on group numbers and projections. Aside from them, EP is quite average in some aspects and very good in others.
I had a very enriching time at Evergreen Park High School. I was involved in sports and other various activities. I felt welcomed into the school with open arms. The school excels at creating a safe and educational environment for the students. The school allowed me to grow and develop as a student as well as a person. I would change the disciplinary rules at the school. They seem to be too strict and focus on punishment, rather than correction.
