A Message from the Principal
Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year. We are looking forward to a school year filled with opportunities to provide our students with experiences that will influence their social, emotional and academic growth. Based out of Leonia High School, the Evergreen Program’s focus is to provide our students with a traditional high school experience coupled with the therapeutic and academic support they may need. Due to the school setting, many opportunities are available to our students. These opportunities may include mainstreaming, utilizing technology to help meet academic goals, securing an internship, and support for post-secondary planning.
At Evergreen, we pride ourselves on the ability to provide students with the skills and knowledge necessary to navigate life after high school. Therefore, my staff members work closely with students, families and local districts to assure transition goals are implemented and achieved. It is evident from Evergreen Alumni success stories that exceptional work is being done at the BCSS Evergreen Program.
We are looking forward to another successful school year as we continue to support the needs of all of our students.
