Excellent Staff and Teachers! As a parent, always treated with respect starting with the front office staff, duties, teachers, nurse and so forth. My older children went here 9 years ago and have another child there now. It was excellent back then and even better now.

I cannot speak highly enough of the staff at this school. The teachers are exceptional from second grade through fifth grade. They are respected and admired by parents in this community. The teachers, principal, and support staff all promote high expectations of students and do whatever it takes to help them exceed those expectations. Technology abounds at this school. The teachers integrate technology into their lessons whenever possible and many of the classroom staff have class websites. The students create Kid Witness News on a regular basis. The overall atmosphere is positive, enriching, and inviting. The PTA is strong and very involved. The new building is beautiful. I would recommend this school to anyone in a heartbeat!

The staff is wonderful. Everyone from the Principal to the playground ladies are supportive of all the kids. My son was so fortunate to have Mrs. Mc Donald for his teacher. She inspired him on a daily basis to learn and achieve. He also received speech therapy. He was so privileged to have another Mrs. Mac Donald teaching him. My son has flourished as a child and become more independent. This school is fantastic! Thank you all.

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.
