I'm sorry for the one reviewer here who was disappointed but truly - Endeavour is an excellent school with amazing community involvement. The PTSA is fabulous. We have actually had a sub-par teacher one year but I believe our complaints were heard. Our child is thriving in the school.

My child had a great 1st grade year because of her exceptional teacher but for 2nd grade she was placed with a second rate teacher. The class was disorganized and inconsistent. One of the specials teachers had the nerve to insult my child to my face unprompted. When I asked for help a plan was designed but not a single staff member followed through on their commitment. The counselor and asst. principal were quick to place the blame on my child instead of taking responsibility for their lack of follow through or offering to help. My letters to the principal were IGNORED. I have worked in special education for 15 years and know education . If your child is a good learner who doesn't need any support you'll be fine. But don't count on the principal, asst. principal, psychologist, or counselor to support you if your child needs any help. The leadership is poor and while the strong teachers do well the sub par ones don't get any support to improve. We chose Endeavour when we moved to WA based on reviews and scores and were very disappointed. We have since moved to the LWSD and are much happier with the school there.

A great educational environment for the kids. Teachers are well qualified and inspire the kids to bring out their best. A very active and involved Parent community - active PTSA. Awesome Art program! My kid loves going to school everyday!

Great early education academics at this school that challenge the students. The teachers are all well prepared and truly care for the kids. The Office staff are very helpful. Had three kids go through this school and have nothing but a positive experience here.

We have 2 boys at this school. The staff, the teachers and the facilities are all top notch. We could not be more lucky than to be part of this great school and community!

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.
