My daughter attends Byron Kibler. She is completing kindergarten in a week. She is my only child and I don't have much experience with elementary schools thus far, but it seems that she has a hard time making friends. I think that some children are not being taught to treat others as they would like to be treated. I think that there is a bit of the 'I am better than you are' mentality going on in this school, and it seems that the teachers are not being very sensitive to this. We are moving from the school and district because of this.

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.
