I love this school so much! The teachers are warm and caring, and are just amazing with kids. My daughter is learning so much, and is having a wonderful elementary experience at the same time. The staff goes above and beyond, and the degree of parental involvement is awesome.

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.
