Daybreak is terrible at how they handle bullies and aren't really proactive ineliminating school violence. My son got an in school suspension just for pushing a kid off of him that threw him to the ground and started hitting him almost breaking his glasses. I suppose the staff would have preferred him to just lay there & take it. This is one of many similar situations. I am pleased with m sons teachers so far, and the school counselor. It's mainly the bully issue that I have a really hard time with and will be relocating him schools. I don't condone violence nor do I think my son shouldn't defend himself. He did so as gently as he could and they treated him like he was in the wrong.

Both of my kids go here and it is a very good school!!! Hands down! great staff and amazing PTA as well!!! This school has a walking monitor system which my first grader is using and has three staff members walking with the kids at all times!!! and i'm the type of mother that is way too over protective and i trust it!!! in office staff is great as well and have their own relationships build with the kids who attend which is very good to me considering I've seen other schools just bypass the students as just another kid.... Not Day Break!!! keep up the great work!!!

Very pleased with this school. Most of the staff are dedicated and care a lot about the kids. My experience is that the office treats all students fairly and does a good job working out discipline with kids. I am glad my son has spent the last 3 years at Daybreak and look forward to a great 8th grade year!

I am very disapointed in Daybreak. The standards are low. Any child that is at level or below in another district can come to Daybreak and achieve honor roll. There is limited opportunity in this district. The principal has no concept of what it means to lead and inspire. I myself am a very involved Parent and have had the misfortune of getting to see with my own eyes the lack of consistency. It is troubling to me when a principal is quick to defend inadequate staff over putting children first.

My daughter has excelled at Daybreak and raised her grades above 3.5 GPA. She feels Daybreak's teachers support her and help her to feel successful in the classroom. Due to the assistance from her teachers, her grades and her love of learning has tripled.

Daybreak has a wonderful school counselor. She is professional and kind. She helped my daughter through a tuff time. She is only part-time and I am disappointed that there is no funding for having a full-time counselor at Daybreak.

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.
