Overview
  • About Everett Middle School

    Everett Middle School is a public school located at the border of the vibrant Castro and Mission districts. We serve a diverse student population including newcomers and special day students, and we offer Spanish Immersion instruction and unique enrichment in arts, leadership and civic activism.

    Everett’s school vision is that students leave 8th grade on or above grade level and empowered to change the world. To accomplish this, we offer an inclusive school model where, regardless of whether a student is an English learner or has an IEP, they are challenged, supported, and celebrated in the general education classroom. We believe this inclusive model helps students build relationships across difference, which are critical to becoming effective change agents. 

    We also strive to cultivate strong academic identities in our students. We do this by using standards based grading and giving students frequent feedback about their progress. We also offer small group intervention classes for students who come to Everett below grade level in reading or math. These are offered from 2:45pm to 3:24pm Monday through Thursday. If a student doesn’t qualify for these classes, they are able to attend school from 8:30 to 2:45pm instead of from 8:30am to 3:24pm.

    Everett has a block schedule where students have three 90-minute blocks of academic instruction, and one block for PE and elective. The academic courses offered daily are math, English language arts, and non-fiction studies (science/social studies). Students in the Spanish dual language pathway receive their non-fiction studies instruction in Spanish. In 2018-2019 we are offering band, orchestra, vocal music, theater arts, peer resources, computer science, and art for electives. Everett is also proud to offer a newcomer pathway for students to develop their English skills before bridging into a full time general education schedule.

  • Language Programs

    • Newcomer Program - all languages
    • Spanish Secondary Dual Language Program
    Everett's dual immersion pathway is delivered in one of the three blocked classes. Our non-fiction studies (NFS) class is where students received their science and history curriculum. For students in our dual immersion pathway, they receive this class completely in Spanish. This allows them to be mixed with general education students for the remainder of their school day.

    We are also a proud newcomer pathway school. Newcomer English learners receive half of their day's instruction in sheltered classes that are focused on developing emerging English reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills.
