The staff at Cosi School are very caring and responsive to my questions. They have focused on infusing technology with learning opportunities which has successfully engaged all students. My child was a reluctant reader and within a few months of attending this school, she can hardly put down a book. Congratulations on the well deserved Washington Achievement Award, received April 2014.

Overall, good school. Can do better if Kindergarden teacher improved classroom management & lesson planning. Follow state standards & standardize reading & math programs.

Academic programs are excellent. PTA is very active. This school offers music and PE. However, it does not have a lot of extracurricular activities.

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.
