Thank you for your interest in Everett Elementary School. Everett is located at 1111 Everett School Road in the community of Lake Forest, Illinois.
Everett serves a population of students from Kindergarten through fourth grade. The student enrollment at Everett is approximately 279 students. Our school mascot is Elvis the Eagle. Many parents choose to live in Lake Forest due to our reputation for academic excellence, and we at Everett uphold that reputation through our work to meet the needs of all of our Everett Eagles.
Everett students are provided with an environment where they are consistently challenged and motivated to do their best. Together, administrators, staff members, and special service professionals partner with the community to engage each and every child in the rigorous curriculum at Everett. Core subjects studied include reading, math, writing, social studies, and science. Everett students are also fortunate to participate in music, art, wellness, and library and technology skills in addition to their core areas of study. A unique aspect of our elementary curriculum at Everett Elementary School is our focus on the development of each child’s skills in World Language. Students begin Spanish instruction in second grade which continues through fourth grade. In addition, all students are exposed to Latin through study of word origins and derivatives in the English Language Arts curriculum. This exposure deepens students’ understanding of English and provides a basis for the study of other romance languages. World Language instruction continues in middle school.
Also integral to our programming and to the success of all Everett Eagles is our Everett APT and the Spirit of 67 Foundation; Both of these organizations work to support the education and enrichment of all Everett students through supporting field trips, guest speakers, and by providing grants to Everett staff members to further enrich their instruction.
