I have three children enrolled in this school. We have had many of the teachers from K-5th grade, and so far, all have been excellent! I am impressed at the small class sizes and individual attention the kids get. I am also very grateful for all the extra curricular programs that have been offered. And the secretary impressed me from the start - she remembered names of my children who were too young for school at the time, even after only meeting them once! I think the PTO needs help, but I suppose that's pretty normal anywhere.

My children have attended Concrete Elementary School for two years. I have been impressed with the outstanding support from the principal and all of the teachers that I have had the opportunity to meet. I have found the principal to be extremely level-headed, caring, and a "think out of the box" type of leader. The teachers that I have worked with are highly communicative about my children's learning. They take time to get to know each child as an individual and set them up to succeed based on their strengths. The Science Fair, held annually, has been a huge, fun event in our lives. The field trips have added to the educational experience. The family nights are a real fun time to get to know other parents and children. A great school! Thank you!

There is a lack of parent involvement. While I do have some concerns, overall Concrete elementary is a fantastic school. The personal level of care the children receive is rare. Each child does have the opportunity to develop at their own pace.I have four children and have been involved with the school for seven years. I wouldn't change a thing.

Academics are aimed at the lowest level, so children at the higher end go unchallenged and have no opportunity to reach their potential. Principal is unconcerned about parents' concerns. There are little to no extracurricular activities to challenge or stimulate kids. Resources and funding for the school is very limited. The school has a couple of excellent teachers, but also some that are inadequate.

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.
