The school district is involved in trying to reach the Native American population that has a large number of students in their ranks....some of those kids have done well....they have a special program called Tall Cedars that is geared to help these kids especially have a real chance to get a high school diploma. When my son went to the High School, I liked being able to get emails , etc from the school & felt like I could speak to them about situations & concerns I had regarding his education. Pus it is in a beautiful little town! :)

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.
