I Love going to this school. Everyone always come to school with a smile. Even though some kids do drugs as does kids at every school kids can still be a good influence. I love the way they deal with behavior issues. Every new student is welcomed with a smile and they already have a friend. The teachers are wonderful so is curriculum. We recently got new ways of learning for kids who need extra help and a fun activity for kids to do if they don't need help. We also have a great rewards program called seals that give rewards to kids if they did good things like reading 5 books in a tri. I can not say enough good things about my school


Posted September 27, 2008

The curriculum is years behind the students levels.The students do not feel engaged, or challenged. There is widespread use of drugs, and drug parafinalia is readily apparent.Theft is all to common.The staff is not open to any critism, and most are not cooperative.My student will not attend next year. On a positive note they planted nice flowers this year.

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.
