This school is a dumping grounds for all kids. They send the non intelligent and the disabled kids to the school. Do Not send you child here if you have to power to. They sit the children in front of computer screens and expect them to learn. Some of the teachers there even want a transfer to other schools. This was a great school until they got a different principal.

Excellent parent/teacher communication of the students. School staff is extremely friendly and gives everyone the feeling that they are welcome.

I am so glad we moved into Eagleridge's boundaries. The school offers excellent music, art, and PE programs, including band and strings for 5th & 6th grade students. Parents are strongly encouraged to participate in the school environment and many do. The teachers are excellent about seeing students as individuals and encouraging them to excel in the strong areas and grow in the weaker areas. The school works hard to meet the needs of students with special needs. I can't say enough about the genuine care and concern shown by the educators for the students in their class. If you're moving into Eagleridge boundaries, you will find the school to be wonderful.

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.
