    No direction for the students. No help from teachers. Students go to school to hang out and teachers to receive a pay check. My daughter hasn't received any type of support from staff being that she just moved down from a different state. Unfortunately picked the wrong zip code to reside in. So looking forward to have a soon- to- be drop out at home. Thanks Evans for ruining the last two years of my child's life and erasing the first ten. My recommendations to other parents " Do not HARM your childs' future!!

    i went to this school for less then a year. the school cop and principle watched me get beat up by 6 guys and let it happen.

    Calling it a 'place of high achievement' doesn't make it so. Putting students who cannot read in an AP class and they receive an 'F' doesn't make them smarter it makes them quit and cause trouble. The principal is never at school and doesn't listen to kids anyway. My sister graduated in 2005 and it was better then. I wish that I could transfer but I don't have a car.

    I had high hopes when my son entered Evans in 2005. Changes were made and there was a caring administration and staff that knew my son and pushed him to do his best. My daughter entered Evans this year and the staff is so different. She needs help with reading but does well in math. Nothing is provided to help her in reading except during the reading class and that is just FCAT worksheets. Has any parent been able to talk with the principal? He is never there. That seems to be a problem and the secretary will not make appointment. We are looking at Agape or a transfer for next year.

    Evans is a great school for students who are willing to ignore the distractions(drama) and work their buts off.Thats what I did and my GPA never went below a 3.7.There are also teachers who will go the extra mile for your success when you need them to do so.GO TROJANS!!!

    As a parent I feel that the school needs consistency. IThe school adminnistration and staff worked on the IB Program for the past 2 years and it was introduced to us last April but there doesn't seem to be the same teachers in the program that we met. Is this what is going to continue? My husband and I met the principal last year and she called our home to encourage us to enroll our daughter in the program. When I asked about some of the promises that were made no one will even respond this year. I have left several messages with the principal's secretary but my calls are not returned. I have another child who will be in the 9th grade next year but I don't even know where he will go. Does anyonoe at Evans have any answers?

    I think our school is improving greatly.

    Evans High School is as a very good academic school. The new administration has really done a great job of introducing new academic programs such as Advanced Placement and IB.

  • (7 years ago)

    As a new student at evans this year I can truly say that Evans is a great school (with the exception of certain students). Evans have an excellent IB Program and is nothing like the rumors peole say it to be.

    Evans High has been called horrible and been put down constantly. People who have nevver been in the school judge it on what others say. As the qoute goes 'When we ignore other people's ignorance we find our own wisdom.' I believe those parents who view Evans as a 'bad' school should learn to make thier own opinion. When walking on campus it's a fairly calm campus with a few students who feel as though they need to make a bad scene but it's not as bad as people think. Heck it's not even close to what people believe. Maynard Evans High school is a good school. Just check it out for yourself before you judge based on the ignorance of others.

    I think the academic program is great and the music art sports and others. I really felt bad with the cheerleader squad with the 2 boys that was acting like girls. This is unacceptable! The bank and team were great!!

    Parents visit the school and see what good education is going on. Students follow the rules and go to class. My son stays after school for tutoring and is doing much better. The principal and staff are available if you have a problem. I support Evans and encourage other parents to support them too. Visit the school. Parents are not involved enough for their children.

  • (8 years ago)

    Quality is being added but it takes time. Give them a chance to improve. The campus is quiet and the students are in class. No one knows this because the parents don't visit the school. Children who want to learn are learning. Parents! Get involved. Thank you Evans principles and teachers for raising the bar.

    Schools cannot be successful without the assistance of the parents. Evans High does a fantastic job with the students considered the school's location and lack of parental support. Less than 50 parents attending monthly is not acceptable. If the community wants to have a higher performing school they need to assist the fantastic faculty and administration at Maynard Evans High.

  • (9 years ago)

    I can see that Evans is still improving and quality is being valued. It is not acceptable that parents do not have any responsibility for their students. I appreciate the hard work of the principal. She is very supportive of the students. What a wonderful graduation too!

    maynard evans high school is a wonderful school with an outstanding gropu of diverse young people! what is adversely affecting growth and cohesion at the school is one particular administrator.

  • (9 years ago)

    Nothing positive to say poor staff facilities and education

  • (9 years ago)

    Most of the students that attend this school are misguided and unfocused which can lead to bad behavior. They are not bad people but they are headed down the wrong path. Teachers having to deal with the misbehavers are inattentive to the other students. Make sure your child is self motivated and focused before you consider sending them here.

    This school is one of the realest schools in Orange County. I love it and dont judge unless you have attended.
