Our History

123
The first public school opened on July 8, 1870 with eight pupils. Today's enrollment averages just under 3,000. Curriculum guides for each course, subject and grade level are continuously being developed and updated by a task force of teachers and administrators. Areas of emphasis are determined by the dictates of the community, students, teachers, administrators, and sound financial management.
 
The goals of achieving both educational excellence and a strong competitive co-curricular program of activities go hand in hand in the Evanston School Community. Evanston athletic teams are often contenders in State play-offs. During the past few years, several athletic teams have won State Championships. The Evanston School Community boasts award winning bands and choirs, drama groups, and speech and debate teams.
