Overcrowded. They need to keep it cleaner.


Posted May 27, 2005

There is diversity in the types and quantity of classes, but the need for quality instructors still prevails. There are extracurricular activities that children are able to participate in, but only a small percentage do so. Children requiring special assistance are given lip service but no real value.

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.
