We moved to this school district 3 years ago, and at first I was very leary about the school but quickly had wonderful experiences with the teachers and principle and other staff that make this school a great school, they listen and are sensitive to the students needs. I appreciate that. I have a 3rd grader and an 8th grader now and they enjoy going to school and that's important to me because that say's alot.

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.
