Evergreen Elementary


The Evergreen Elementary School District in San Jose, California, consists of 16 schools, including 13 elementary schools and 3 middle schools, serving students from kindergarten through 8th grade. The district is ranked 317 out of 1,560 districts in the state and has a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Among the standout schools in the district are Tom Matsumoto Elementary, ranked 179 out of 5,848 California elementary schools with a 5-star rating, and James Franklin Smith Elementary, ranked 130 out of 5,848 with a 5-star rating. Both schools have exceptional test scores, with over 80% proficiency in English Language Arts and Mathematics. The top-performing middle school is Chaboya Middle, ranked 51 out of 2,788 California middle schools with a 5-star rating and high proficiency rates.

However, the data also reveals stark differences in performance across the district, with some schools, such as Katherine R. Smith Elementary and O.B. Whaley Elementary, struggling with proficiency rates well below the district and state averages. This disparity appears to be correlated with socioeconomic factors, as the lower-performing schools generally have higher percentages of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch. Additionally, several schools, particularly the lower-performing ones, have high chronic absenteeism rates, which can be a significant barrier to student learning and achievement. Overall, the Evergreen Elementary School District faces challenges in addressing equity and ensuring all students have access to a quality education.
