Not only has the leadership and faculty at Cedarwood created an excellent learning environment for the children attending, they have also strengthened the community by reaching out to it, and leading by example to help provide a stronger and healthier community with lots of parent involvement. Cedarwood is a first class school!

I have two students in the school. I am impressed by the leadership of the school which shows through the amazing team of teachers who work together at all levels to give all students a great education! It is a very caring community of educators and parents. I love our school!

Both of my children attended Cedar Wood Elementary. This school is currently rated number 2 in the nation. That is quite an honor. I appreciate that they prepared my children to do well in math and science and the test scores for WASL testing were always higher than average as the school prepared the children to understand the concepts that would be needed.

As a parent of 2 boys, 10 years apart I can honestly say that both sons have received outstanding experiences at Cedar Wood. Our youngest will be a 3rd grader next year and we know he is in good hands.

I agree with the Jan 10 poster. This principal does not seem to follow through or clearly communicate. I have had several interactions with him and the follow up has been inconsistent and poor. There have been occassions that follow up was never done unless initated by me.

I think the teachers are strong, but the communication with the principal is confusing. He seems to say one thing and do another. Parents are uncomfortable.

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.
