I used to be a student at this school for four years. When I was in the third grade I had a teacher who was horrible to me, she once grabbed my arm and shook it quite hard. I have no fond memories of that place.

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.
