I went to this school, and it's one of the reasons I moved back into the area to raise my kids.

My son's attitude has changed thanks to Fernwood Elementary. He is excited to learn new skill sets. He is a happy young man. The teachers at Fernwood are very motivated to strive for each individual student, which is fantastic. Kudos to the whole staff. Thanks!

Fernwood elementary, under the able leadership of anne bayard, is a class act. We have two children that have attended grades k-6, with the youngest graduating this year. While the two of them are completly different in their academic needs they have both received appropriate instruction tailored to their special needs. It is obvkous to me that ms. Bayard spends a lot of time managing day to day operations as well as orchestrating special events. To a parent that frequently attends school activiites my overall impression is that anne's school runs very smoothly. A special mention for one teacher. Bill Shields is excellent in preparing sixth graders for the increased demands of junior high. The organizational skills students receive from him will sustain them for many years to come. A better school we would be hard pressed to find!

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.
