Magic is happening at this school. Kind. Fair. Dedicated staff walk the halls daily with smiles on their faces and their classrooms in their hearts. Couldn't be happier with this school. Test scores, dedicated parent volunteers, talented staff, great leadership, engaged happy children... says it all.

We feel blessed to have had such a positive, caring and patient teacher to start our sons learning experience in Kindergarten. Mrs Palmer is wonderful and so creative in her teachings keeping the young children focused and eager to learn. A beautiful start ! The Bruce Family Lake Stevens,WA

This school is the best. Skyline strives on good morals, safety and teaching. No kid is left behind. Reading, math and science is a key goal at this school. I think the test scores say it all. The teachers here are fabulous!

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.
