The teachers are amazing. Especially the special education staff, Mrs. Sauer is very caring and knowledgable working with kids and their different abilities.

My twins go to this school and are going into the 3rd grade. We love this school and the support from there teachers as well as the principal and asst. principal, all the staff knows all the family's names. The school has helped my boys become little men and this is the best school ever!

Both my kids attend this school. The teachers are great. We had a bully or two over the years bothering my kids and the asst. Principal and teachers got on the problem the first day I called them and handled the bully problem outstandingly. I couldn't of been more happy with the results we had.

I have a first grader at Tukes Valley Primary and am very impressed with this new school. Only in its second year, it is very well run and the experienced teachers do a great job of coping with the children's varying skills. The school district does a great job of helping kids with special needs or those that need extra help and are committed to helping every child meet end-of-year standards. The curriculum isn't too challenging, I've found. Academically advanced kids can test for the ASPIRE program in first grade for entry into a highly capable type program in second grade. This school has art, music and PE for every grade except kindergarten, with a very active PTA and parent volunteers in classrooms. An awesome, safe, clean and fun school!

My son loved his first year at Tukes Valley. Because of the beautiful facility and the demographics of this school I project it to be the top Battle Ground K-8 for the next several years.

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.
