I love Glenridge Elementary!! My daughter is now in 1st grade. The teachers are the absolute best! Every member of the faculty and staff are friendly, helpful and completely dedicated to creating the best possible learning environment for the children. They have a "no bully policy", that every school should have! It the most organized school I have ever experienced! I have met parents who moved in to the area, just so their child could attend this school. I can't rave enough about Glenridge!!!

This past school year, Glenridge received, based on it's improved WASL scores, the Washington State School of Distinction recognition from the Superintendent of Public Instruction. My 3rd and 6th grade children enjoyed their teachers, doing very well. They also were involved in the wonderful drama production. Glenridge is a great elementary school.

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.
