Discover This School
Everett Middle School, located between the Mission and Castro neighborhoods, promotes a college-readiness culture through rigorous academic classes and partnerships with Mission Graduates, First Graduates and GEAR-UP. Our school offers a Spanish immersion program and serves newcomer students from all over the world. The ExCEL/Beacon after-school program helps students and their families with academics, recreational, and enrichment activities. We strongly believe parents are our partners in the education of every student and encourage their participation. Everett is dedicated to providing each student with an equal opportunity to succeed by promoting intellectual growth, creativity, self-discipline, cultural and linguistic sensitivity, democratic responsibility, and physical and mental health so that each student can achieve his or her maximum potential.
Everett centers professional learning on equity, creating an environment where students can flourish. We help students discover high levels of engagement, self-efficacy, and optimism. Engaged, high-achieving, joyful learners are students who believe that they are part of the Everett learning community, that teachers and staff have their best interest at heart. We believe that accountability is a partnership between students, parents, teachers, and other responsible adults who consistently encourage students to achieve their highest potential. To support ongoing communications, we hold parent meetings in Spanish and have a full-time parent liaison available to families.
