Why choose our school?

For local parents in Everton Park, choosing a primary school can be somewhat mystifying and challenging. Which one of several excellent schools should they choose for their child? Having worked at this school for over eight years I can honestly tell you that your children will get an excellent education at our school. So why do we recommend our school to you? What makes us different?
At Everton Park State School, we believe that every student has the opportunity to succeed. As a school it’s our purpose to ensure we have an environment where teachers can teach so that students can learn. We aim to nurture amazing young people who achieve their holistic and academic potential. All our year groups, enjoy a curriculum of stimulating, exciting and challenging learning experiences carefully differentiated to meet the needs of all our students. We highly value all areas of learning and our curriculum reflects this.
Everton Park State School values the creation of better ways of doing the things we do. We do not rest on our accomplishments, but rather build on them in our personal and professional journey to be the best we can be and set new standards for our school. This drives us to expect more of ourselves after each success and endeavour to exceed expectations in all we do.
In our school, Success with Honour means that everything we say and everything we do are true reflections of what we value and what is important to us. When we act with integrity we are sincere and true to ourselves. People trust and respect us, our relationships are solid and our students feel positively about themselves.
So, in a nutshell, what is particularly significant about Everton Park State School? We are special simply because we are a very happy, fun-filled and exciting school, a wonderful place to learn and work. We are part of a friendly community who work in partnership together to give our children the very best well-rounded education: truly outstanding, truly excellent!
