Amazing school! My daughter attended all day kindergarten for the 09-2010 school year. Her teacher, Mrs Hulbert is absolutly amazing and I am impressed with the high quality of education she has received. THe school is a very nice building. The principal looks really young but demonstrates great leadership and follows thru on his word. The school also has a great no bullying rule and they take it very seriously and are swift with action.

Meadowdale Elementary is a wonderful school! The parent involvement is exceptional, and the teachers & staff truly care about the students. The PTA 'rocks'.... always something going on that helps to keep the parents involved. Thanks to all the staff, students, and teachers for making Meadowdale Elementary a great place to call 'home'.

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.
