My grandsons attend the Discovery Program at Shadow Lake and they rate this school a "10"! The teachers are excellent and the principal is very effective and treats everyone fairly.


Posted August 20, 2008

Having had the priviledge to interact with all aspects of SLES for many years with educators, administors, volunteers, and students;I would like to add my high regards to the many positive voices of praise!

I think this school has great teachers that really care about each and every child. The PTA is phenomenal and brings in lots of money for the kids needs. The only area that could use help is the playground. It has no grass for our kids to play on.

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.
