    I think this a great school. One of the best since my son has been in elementary school. I love the academic programs and the afterschool programs. They have qualified staff to assist with special needs students and I have witness that. Even the principal is very involved in the lives of the children and that goes a long way with me. The only thing I think should be utilize more is computer knowledge and hands on. Keep up the good work Medgar Evers.

    Especially special needed children poorly participate in class activities. They should be given more chance and encouraged. Lessons/activities are not effectively modified for spec.Needed students. I believe that they don't get effective education. Adaptations for these children are not effective/satisfactory. Technology/computers are very rarely used. For example in a classroom the students are not allowed to use even overhead projectors and calculators. The school administration should encourage/enforce the teachers to use technology/computers. Teacher should teach and encourage the students to think critically. For example students should be educated through advanced strategies rather than old traditional methods.

    Evers has an energetic and highly-organized primary department(preK-3).The teachers have high expectations for their pupils. They use a variety of projects and strategies to motivate children. They steadfastly use the Accelerated Reader program which has made my children eager to read! It is my hope that as my children progress through the middle and upper grades the teachers will continue that enthusiasm and high-quality engaged instruction. The fine arts activities are top-notch! I hope that a band program can be added soon. I strongly encourage parents of Evers students to become more involved with school activities as well as monitoring your child's studies and progress.
