Evergreen Park World Cultures Community School became a Specialty School in 2012 and serves approximately 500 students in grades PreK-5. As part of the Anoka Hennepin School District, the district core elementary curriculum is taught. In addition to the core curriculum, EPWCCS's Specialty School focus includes the integration of Community, Culture, Arts and Experiences. This provides students opportunities for community connections and partnerships, hands-on learning experiences, and multiple exposures to culture and the arts through artist-in-residency visits, classroom connections, and field trips. EPWCCS is fortunate to have many community partnerships that help provide rich learning opportunities for students.
During the 2018-2019 school year, Evergreen Park began a transition from an integration of Community, Culture, Arts, and Experiences to a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics)-focused integration per the decision of the school board. Over the next few years, Evergreen will develop a focus in the area of STEM and work to embed STEM-based learning into the content areas of the classroom. The 2019-2020 school year will be a planning year, 2020-2021 a soft start implementation, and entering full implementation for the 2021-2022 school year.
