Incompetent leadership, constant change to the next big thing, administration grasping for every federal dollar at the expense of sound fundamental education to fund the pay for a grossly overstaffed and overpaid district office. $5,000,000 Federal Grant and nothing, but decrepit textbooks, overpaid CA consultants and a P.E teacher at the helm to show for it.

Posted October 6, 2004

Grandview Middle school has taken great steps over the past several years to add advanced placement classes. These classes provide the students with high school credits and great learning opportunities. The science department does a tremedous job and provides opportunities for students to participate in regional and statewide science fairs. After school sporting opportunities allow the students to travel throughout the valley to compete. More interest goup clubs would allow the non-athletic areas to better serviced. I have had three children attend and have never had a safety issue that was not adressed by the staff in a timely manner.

This school has inexperienced teachers who are unsure how to handle 'difficult' children. This can lead to class disruption and loss of focus. Also over all there is not much leadership to push for empathy or appreciation of diversity. After school activities are limited. And bullying or picking on of certain students seems to be tolerated or ignored by staff.
—Submitted by a former student

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.
