Awesome school! Very creative and filled with arts, energy, and ethusiastic staff & teachers! Have had 4 kids go through this school and I think it's one of the best schools in the state!

What a great community. Principal is on the ball, always willing to go the extra mile for a child. Most school front office people are nice, but these ladies go above and beyond. They are amazing. We've had several teachers here and they have all been like those amazing pivotal teachers in your life. We are so happy here.

My son has been in the PAT program since 2nd grade (for 2 years), which is located at this school. He loves school and loves his teacher. I am always amazed at the things he is learning in ALL areas. This is a fantastic program.

My son has been in the multi age wing for three years. He has done very well. The staff are loving and well qualified. The program is well run. The playground needs some updated equiptment and the PTA is working on it now.

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.
