This school is AMAZING my son has done Kindergarten and 1st grade here. My daughter has done their preschool program as well. I love the office staff and all teachers I have met. The office remembers every kid and parent by name some how and really cares about the success of your child. We have to move soon and I am so bummed and even considering driving them everyday to get them to stay here!

Quality of Academic Programs: The teachers are well-trained. They take great care in helping the students who need extra help, and make the learning fun and interesting to the student. They have music. An art docent which has been quite wonderful. Honestly, I haven't noticed extracurricular activities (that just may be that my son was not interested in what they have). The parent involvement is quite high. I see numerous parents who help out in the classrooms, the PTA, the office, etc....

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.
