Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

Awesome, awesome, awesome. The staff here is amazing. My only complaint would be that they tend to favor the kids that have been there since K. So when it comes to awards there seems to be favortism.

The reviews here are old. Before you attend Kapowsin Elementary, get current reviews and check on the school's performance. The quality of education is below par. There are a few teachers who care and are good but they cannot carry the entire school. Principal leadership these past few years has been average to poor which I believe is responsible in large part for the school's decline. Parent involvement is amazing and great effort is made by the parents to compensate for the lack of caring and quality of education at Kapowsin. The school's test scores are terrible unless you are happy with below average and 'way below' average test scores. It's a shame.

My son, niece, and little cousins all go to this school and love it! I have been so happy with the teachers and staff. They really make you feel like your child is important. I know my son is getting a great education and having fun at the same time.

My three children have each attended this school for their elementary education. We have found the school to be far superior in quality academics and great teachers. Please be aware, the burden of education rests ultimately upon the shoulders of the parents, Kapowsin helps to ease that burden.

My twin girls just blossomed under the care of Kindergarten teacher Linda LaVergne during the 2003-2004 sy. She is an amazing asset to Kapowsin - a teacher who cares and exceeds well beyond expectations. She taught all of kindergarteners how to read before Christmas - including Title 1 and Special Education students. Now that is an accomplishment! The principal also left his mark on my children - with his surprisingly great memory for names and details. He makes children feel special when they are remembered. Thank God for these excellent teachers and how much they care. They are both extremely active in the school's PTA. We are no longer at Kapowsin but will always treasure our experiences there! Thanks from Sierra & Dhalia, age 7

It is a fairly small rural school in a large district. The parents are very involved in the school and it makes it more like a family. I appreciate the teachers for their special concern for our kids. It is not unusual to get a call from a teacher over a concern, not that the child has gotten into trouble, but it could be going that way. The academics are pretty good. There are areas of improvement, but the standardized tests show that there has been consistent improvement over the years. Choir and band are available, but it interferes with either the child's recess or occurs during class time. That is something that could be improved. There are numerous teachers at this school with a special interest in art and there is an assigned art teacher. I feel that my daughter has gotten an extraordinary art education.
