The teachers are dedicated to teaching the students and they support the students in their attempts to learn. They encourage students to make Cashmere a better place to live.


Posted June 9, 2008

This elementary school is made up of a pods - groupings of classrooms for each grade level. The school is only grds.k-4, 5th is @ the middle school. My kids have been in all 4 upper valley elem. schools, and really enjoy the set up of this one. Though there is alot more parent involevement in the Leavenworth schools.. We really like the teachers and administrators and have not had any troubles dealing with any of them, they are very friendly and helpful. The one thing my kids miss though is access to computers, Vale only has them available for test taking. Abonus this year is the PTO just purchasede brand new playground equipment-YAY!!

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.
