I went to Northlake for 3 years, k-2 and I loved it. In my personal opinion Northlake is one of the best elementary schools around. After I moved I was very disappointed because I lost everything structurally that I had at Northlake. There is (or was) always a field day where the students k-5 could play outside and do obstacle courses, tug of war and many other very fun things. You could always make up things you missed and retake tests. Find out what you missed and make it up. I miss this school, and if it weren't for me being in high school I would go back in a heartbeat. Not many people can say that about some schools.

My child has gone here for the last 3 years his first year was great. He had a good Teacher but the last 2 years have been hell. This classes have and 25 to 30 students. And the teachers just want children on medication. At first, I was really upset about it thinking there was something wrong with my child until I started talking to the other children's parents. And they all had the same story the teacher telling them their child needed medication. And if your child does have problems they do not have any programs to help.

They do nothing when it comes to bullying. My husband and I have contacted the school (principal, teachers, yard attendants, office staff) well over six times and nothing has been done. In fact, they say they are going to do something and don't follow through. It's to the point I don't know what to do.

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.
