My daughter currently attends Meredith Hill Elementary and we have been so happy with this school. There are numerous activities made possible by the very involved PTA. It is a safe school with staff that are happy to be there and with a caring principal. The children who attend this school thrive here. I disagree with the previous comment about lack of diversity at this school. Many of my daughter's classmate's are from different cultures. There is a steel drum band and Winterfest honored the many holidays celebrated by different cultures in the winter.

Both of my daughters went through Meridith Hill. Great acadamic school with wonderful accelerated programs. Both of them did very well there academically, but not very culturally diverse.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Washington used the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, in writing in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The MSP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
