i went to huntington for two years( 2007 through 2009) and i miss it alot. the teachers helped me with my homework and they can break things down in a why we can understand. sure there was some more strict teachers and there was some less liked teachers but not every school can be perfect. the extracurricular is great. it gets really good scores on tests.

I went to Huntington for 2 and a half years and it was an awful experience. The students were cruel, the teachers were not helpful, and the vice principal showed favoritism to students whose family he knew personally. I wouldn't ever recommend attending Huntington middle school.

If you research Huntington vs similar school and Kelso/Longview middle school you will see that they are at or near the top in most categories. They have great teachers and coaches. The principals really care about their kids and communication is frequent and encouraged. So glad my kids have attended.

They take pride in teaching students so they came up with a time to help students. They first started this year to see how the students would react to the time 'opportunity time'. They were proud to find out students would go to teachers for 'opportunity' and this year they had a higher amount of people getting awards.

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.
