Kindergarten was good(thanks to one great teacher), as my son reached second grade his reading level only deteriorated and teacher along with principal only managed to reduce the confidence in my child. Thank god we moved to a different school district.

This is our fourth elementary school. It has an outstanding principal, assistant principal, and PE teacher. The school's weaknesses are its music program and the fact the neighborhood and gifted kids don't really mix together.

Teachers, specialists and quality of classrooms are all very good,though the district's gifted program and teachers are not supported well by the current principals. The remainder of the school is a very diverse population where great teachers do the best they can with the challenges of a heavy ESL population.

My son joined KG last year. We, including my son, had a wonderful time through out the year with hardworking Stevenson staffs. Stevenson is a perfect international school with great mix of variety of ethnic backgrounds.

The principal, staff, and teachers all go the extra mile for each student. The student comes first here and is loved by everyone on staff. The teachers are truly passionate about their work and it shows. I have had children in both the PRISM and Success programs and both have highly motivated staff who work very long hours to provide the best education they can.

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.
