Grove Elementary far exceeded my expectations! as a parent, I was pleased to have such an amazing staff of teachers, administrators and para's for a positive learning environment. The organization is obvious. This school is put together and family friendly. The PTA is one of the best around. Overall, Marysville School District is a great district, and Grove Elementary is reflective of the hard work and positive workforce that teach and influence our children.

Grove is amazing! The school is aesthetically beautiful; the staff is knowledgeable, kind, and caring. My son has loved all his teachers as they have really gotten to know him and his specific needs. Communication between staff and parents is frequent and positive. The PTA is incredibly involved and works hard for both students and staff. I recommend Grove to any parent wanting a quality education for their child(ren).

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.
