Having choices and the opportunity to be balanced is what I love most about Evansville Day School! I feel like next to being globally minded and focusing on academics, my superpower is definitely sports! And by sports, I mean all kinds of sports. From basketball, to soccer, to cross country, and tennis, I represent the SUPER-SPORTS power of EDS!

Which brings us to China.

When we say we are culturally diverse, we mean it. Did you know that in our current 5th grade class seven students out of the 16 speak a second language fluently? These students represent 6 countries: Spain, France, Romania, Pakistan, India, Germany, and Japan.  Likewise, 22% of our student body identifies as multi-cultural.

As you walk into our building from the Primary School entrance, you find yourself inside our Rainbow Hallway. If you continue, you’ll reach our library, but it may not be what you expect to see. You will still find shelves upon shelves of books, tables, chairs and rugs, but you’ll also find a lot more as this space provides many new opportunities for our students in JPK through 4th grade.
