Located in La Jolla, California, The Evans School is a private, coeducational day school for students in Junior Kindergarten through Sixth Grade. Since its founding in 1958, Evans has provided a challenging academic program, enriched with a finely tuned balance of music, drama, art and sports. In addition, we are dedicated to helping young children develop a love of learning, a deep respect for family and friends, and the strength of character essential for making a positive difference in the world. We believe students’ character defines not only who they are, but also the quality of their future. At The Evans School, each child is provided the tools and support to achieve his or her fullest potential.
The values listed on banners throughout the school are more than just words. They serve as a constant reminder of qualities which we seek to develop and goals for which we strive, both as teachers and as students. They encourage in each child the development of self-confidence and a desire to become a lifelong learner.
Concepts such as Kindness, Honesty, Respect, Loyalty, Generosity, and Sportsmanship establish the very foundation of teaching and learning at Evans.
We recognize that an Evans education is a true partnership between students, parents, and staff. We embark on this journey joyfully, knowing that together we can encourage a love of learning, a desire to develop individual talents and skills, and an appreciation for that which is uplifting and good. The knowledge gained, friendships formed, the special spirit felt, supported by an abiding sense of family….the sum of all these parts constitutes the unique “Evans Experience.”
If Evans graduates leave with enough knowledge to succeed in their next school, a sense of integrity which doesn’t waver, a sincere consideration and respect for others, enough self-confidence and wisdom to withstand the peer pressures and challenges which lie ahead, a stronger faith in God, and memories of many happy and successful days at Evans, we will have accomplished our goals.
