I have three children attend Parkway Elementary and overall the teachers and administration is wonderful. The teachers are very informative and really try to include all the students in activities. One of my children does have medical issues and we are in constant communication on what steps to take. We have had only one teacher issue, and we have resolved that issue to make sure our other children will not get that teacher. The teacher played favorites and it showed in my my child's education. Over all, great school and great teachers.

It's a pretty good school, I just wish there was more communication, and that they would keep their website updated.

My son has just started at the Parkway Elementary School. I just joined the parents group so my view is not one from long term experience. I do think so far it is a great school. I have already noticed my son bringing home papers with more work done. He has difficultly reading and writing so it was a nice thing to see with in the first 3 wks of school.

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.
