I had the pleaseure of sending 2 of my children through this school. They both had the same teacher for third grade and she was beyond fabulous! Was not so impressed with the second grade experience, but will write that off since it was the teachers very first year. My only complaint is the "Spanish is the new English" attitude that pervades the grounds. I understand spanish immersion is the "new thing" in the area and championed by the senator, but come ON! There was a run where ALL the front door notices were in spanish and you had to request English translations from the front desk. I finally made a formal complaint and they split the notices and posted in both languages. Just because half the school chooses to participate in the immersion program does not mean the ENTIRE school should be subjected to it. I guess if you want an American school to teach your kids only spanish then this is probably the place for you. If you prefer an American school that is proud to teach English you might want to look else where. P.S. They get a big kick out of hanging the Mexican flag above the American....

We love this school! Our daughter just graduated Kindergarten, she is in the Spanish Immersion Program. She can read, write, sing and count to 100 and more in Spanish and English. I feel very welcome and involved in this school. Her teacher was strict but also warm and fun, which is so important. The only thing I believe needs some improvement is the music program. I can only speak for my daughter, but even though she loves music, she doesn't enjoy the class and feels the teacher is hard on them. I only mention this because I hope it is something that will improve in the future. Everything else is great and we can't wait for our daughter to continue her education here!

Small school and small class sizes makes this a very friendly and safe atmosphere. Everyone seems to know each other! We love the Spanish Immersion program, it is excellent, but beyond that, the library, the PE teacher, the office staff, even the lunchlady are fabulous people that take the time to know the students.

Great school with a focus on early literacy and a lot of things I thought we could only get in private school; science emphasis, music, PE several times a week, small classes, extra help, great library, real education and real evaluation of students strengths and needs that go far beyond just WASLs. A gem in downtown Bremerton

Involved parents, active PTA and innovative teachers & librarian are bringing art and science into the school. The pricipal is very open to parent involvement and ideas. Experience with a very diverse student body is helping our kids grow into caring, innovative and amazing people! Sign up for Spanish immersion early.

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.
