Posted November 11, 2014

My daughter has been at this school for a year and a half, and there have been good things and bad. She has had really great teachers, I really have liked both of them and so has she. The problem is the rest of the staff, the women in the office are usually really impersonal and not very friendly. The teachers are the most important part though so as far as the teachers I would give bothe 8 out of 10 stars.

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.
