I am very dissatisfied with this school in all aspects i belie that their standards should be reevaluated and that they should care more about the students progress and not just passing them on to the next grade just so that they do not have to deal with them anymore . I would like to out my children in a different school but do not have the means to do so.

I love this school. The principal is caring and knowledgeable, and has an incredible staff of teachers. There are numerous teachers there that have won prestigious awards for their outstanding teaching. From the minute you walk in the door you can tell that this school cares not only for its children, but also for our community. I have had three children attend this school and I have the highest praise for what Harriet Thompson Elementary has done for them.

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.
