This is the first year I work for Wahluke Jr. High as a Paraproffessional, I think this school is where every student should be looking forward to what thier future will be like in the highschool. With the dedication and time of the great teachers who work here students will have a successfull future. Throughout this year of expirience, I think that the cooperation of every staff member has been great. We have the best principal, always thinking the student's academic success. - Rosa Castro

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.
