I THINK OTHERS SHOULD KNOW THAT CASHMERE MIDDLE SCHOOL IS RATED AMONG THE TOP 10 SCHOOLS IN THE NATION FOR THEIR ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT OF THEIR STUDENTS......THAT SAYS TO ME THAT THEY HAVE MADE IT A PRIORITY TO TEACH AND MODEL WHAT IS NECESSARY FOR ACHIEVEMENT IN ALL AREAS OF A STUDENTS LEARNING........I THINK THEY COULD IMPROVE BY BRINGING MORE EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS THAT STIMULATE THE STUDENTS CREATIVE, INTELLIGENT, HUMOROUS, LOVE FOR LEARNING POWERS ALWAYS.......!

This is the main place where the students first have a real taste of what school and friendships are like.

This is a great public school with amazing teachers! My son is currently in 7th grade. He has humanities with Mrs. Milne and she is by far the most outstanding teacher they have had during their school experience.

Being a small community the parent involvement is fairly good. However, this school teaches to the wasl. This means the focus is less on science and more on passing the wasl. If your kids are normal and healthy they will probably do fine, but if they require an iep, good luck on getting the needed services. The psychologist is good, but it took the district 1 1/2 years to find a psychologist. Some of the teachers are awesome, but there are a few who should find other work, because as teachers they seem to not really care. The community passed a bond to rebuild the school. Hopefully a larger school will make things a little easier for the students.

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.
