I would give this 0 stars if I could. My son was bullied there and the principal and teacher did absolutely nothing about it. In fact, the teacher said "they're just kids, I am sure they meant nothing by it". I wrote them letters, met with the principal. As far as bullying goes, and leadership- they are non existent. The principal seemed "feather headed" and took no accountability. They didn't care for my child. My son hasn't been going there for a while now.

This was a fabulous school. The long time principal Mr Mansfield retired last summer and we hope his successor can fill his shoes. He was an outstanding leader in every facet of the operation. The school was clean, orderly and safe. Student achievement was the best in the region. The ESL population at this school excels. Mr. Mansfield left huge shoes to fill.

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.
