It always frustrates me when people think the schools in Riverview School District are somewhat lesser quality and not quite up to the standards of the "prestigious" Northshore District it borders. I have had my children in 3 of the schools in Riverview and we couldn't be happier! My youngest is now starting her 5th grade year at Cherry Valley and we couldn't be more satisfied with the school. She has not had a teacher that she didn't absolutely love! CVE will be starting this school year with a new principal who looks like she will be able to carry forward the wonderful leadership that Mrs Becker had in previous years (all the students loved her!). Every class my daughter has been in has more than welcomed parent involvement and all of her teachers have been very easily accessible when needed. Take a quick walk through the halls on any given school day and you will find so many parent helpers throughout the school. PTA always organizes fun activities for families with Bingo night being a huge hit! I definitely wouldn't overlook CVE or the Riverview School District just because it isn't Northshore.

Awesome, school parent involvment is wanted and the teachers love it. My son is learning so much and I feel like there is level of respect for the kids and feel that we still get the small town feel, Budget cuts are hard but the school is doing well still.

A school that does not get the respect it deserves. The teachers and parents are dedicated to providing a safe and high quality learning environment. Music, art and sports still play an important role in this school at a time when many schools are cutting these programs because of budget concerns and the emphasis on achieving high test scores. This school proves that test scores are not the only key to a solid elementary education.

We moved to this rural area for the small-town effect in raising our children 10 years ago, unfortunately many other families have had the same idea in the past 5-7 years also. With the area booming beyond belief, the school district has been incredibly slow to grow as well. In a recent rezoning for balance in number of kids between the 3 grade schools, there seems to be no benefit to class size and the estimated number of students to each class for 05-06 is projected at 28-30, up dramatically from average of 18-23. There is a fantastic newer music/band program & teacher and the PTA has created some extra after school programs the past year that will be promising if continued.

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.
