Posted February 8, 2012

The teacher are all white, which is fine because I am too. I rather my kids learn in a school there diversity isn't important. This is American, diversity is not important. Anyway I digress...I am not happy because as a parent, I would roam the halls and never be asked if I had questions. I never wore a visitor sticker or badge and the teachers all looked misrable, unhappy and ready to leave as soon as they could! It seems like this school only depresses the kids! The staff is a sad, sad group of folks who don't care who roams the halls. Don't they care about the safety of students?

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.
