dWe have 2 daughters who have attended Bayview school since Kindergarten. They have the best teachers in this school, but most of all, I love how involved they make the families with an official "grandparents day" as well as making parents involved in every day learning and activities. I've been a parent helper in the class and on field trips and they encourage parents to be a part of the leaning. I've never seen such a unified group of teachers who want the best for the students as they do at Bayview. They really do care about the students and work very closely with the parents to make agreat learning experience! Only thing I'd change is having them attend this school through High School instead of just 8th grade. I give this school a strong 5 stars!

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.
