P.E. is phenomenal here! Unfortunately, not much else is. The school caters to the kids on the reservation and their services are outstanding. If you do not live on the res; everything else is just average and the reading program is boring and dry.The reading program they use is Open Court which is used elsewhere for only Special ed. students who have a great need for remediation.The hot lunch program is yummy and nutritious, however. My conclusion is: my son is eating well and exercising in a fun way, but not learning much:(

The best program in the school is the physical education department. The teacher is innovative, intelligent, and includes all students. She also has developed new children's fitness programs. Students absolutely love p.e.

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.
