Everest Value School Home

Welcome to Everest Value School

Our mission is to establish and support free, high quality, values-based charter schools for students historically underserved by traditional public schools.
Grounded in our values, our rigorous academic programs challenge our students to be a part of a rich Transitional Kindergarten through 8th Grade learning environment. We have high expectations for our students and we do everything we can to ensure our students reach these expectations. Join us as we create an exceptional school, an exceptional community, and exceptional lives.

What our students say:

•I belong in this academic community;
• My ability and competence grow with
my effort;
• I can succeed at this; and
• This work has value for me.

Value Schools Board Member and His Personal Everest

Tom has pushed through snow, slid over ice, and rerouted for fire; he’s summited the highest peaks and searched for water in the driest of deserts. He’s done all this with wind-ripped tents, trail-torn shoes, and more blisters than he can count.
