Posted October 8, 2013

the principle and teachers are doing a much better job communicating this year than last. My daughter is happier and loves her teacher. thank you Allen
—Submitted by a parent


Posted June 24, 2007

My children just finished the 6th and 2nd grade and had very caring teachers. Both teachers challenged my children and both finished with high marks. The academic program called ACTS (Able,creative, and talented students) in the district for high achievers is excellent. The test scores are not the highest in the district due to transient and students struggling with the language. There is also a low parent involvement which is a struggle when fund raising.

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.
