This was my daughter's first year at Green Mountain and we love it. It's got the small neighborhood feel. The teachers are wonderful and really spend a lot of time with your child. My daughters grades have never been better. School is fun to her and she is more outing. I'm so happy because her previous school was not a good experience for us. The music recital her class did was so cute, you could tell the spent a lot of time rehearsing. It's sad a lot of schools don't recitals anymore. Love, LOVE this school.

I appreciate the one on one the teachers display toward the children. I think the classrooms are very organized and they make the most out of our children's day! My son's teachers are very compassionate and enjoy teaching! I am happy we are at this elementary school. The only drawback is that the classrooms are becoming overcrowded and I think the teacher's are becoming more pressed for time, which may become a strain on some of the above good points.

Ms. Sherbesman taught my 2nd grader this past year. She has the patience of an angel. She has been in constant contact with me due my daughter starting school 3 months late due to surgery. The teachers, parents, and staff in interested in each individual school. The principal does same work as he expects of his staff and takes time for parents, nothing like the Christian School I sending her to at $2,000/year. They are VERY protective over the children. I wouldn't send her to any other school!

I love the way the student get the same teacher for 2 years. That way they are not starting over every year getting to know a new teacher and the teacher getting to know them. They have the same teacher in 1st and 2nd, 3rd and 4th, and 5th and 6th. Great idea!

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.
