My son loves his first year of school! He has access to every challenge and resource a child needs in todays society!

Mint Valley, the school is very good at keeping the parents notified about their children and seems to be on top of everything pertaining to the children. only complaint I have is class rms need to be numbered or teachers name on the doors so its easyer to find.

Level of parent involvement may be one of the very few things Mint Valley is lacking. Love the school, love the teachers. Go Mustangs!

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.
