Update to my review: "This is our 3rd year at Chambers Prairie..." I wanted to update after reading the last review. Since my last review, my son was diagnosed with disabilities (ADHD, ODD, & epilepsy). The school as a whole has made every accomodation for him and us. Not every teacher is equipped to deal with disabilities so it takes a lot of communication between parent & staff. We also dealt with bulling on and off of school premises. When I approached his teacher and principal about it, they took immediate action and it stopped. They continue to work hard to make sure every child can learn to the best of their abilities.

My son went there and was in 4th grade. We had moved here from another state and saw the 2 reviews on here and heard that it is a great school. It's not great for kids with disabilities for sure. My son is autistic and had been being bullied by 3 kids. We didn't know for the 2 weeks it was happening. We were the last to know and I don't think the teacher even liked my son. The principal knew as well and didn't let us know either. I recommend for parents that have kids autistic or have any other disability to find a better 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.
