Posted April 27, 2010

My grandson attends this school and for the most part, I like the school. I am often there with him, and see alot of the interaction between the aides, teachers, students. His teacher is extraordinary. I pray that she is able to keep from being desensitized to the needs of the kids as her teaching career grows. She is exceptional. Personally, I think that kindness, true kindness modeled for the kids by the adults, would do alot for changing some behavior issues. Just my opinion.

My son has went to this school for three years and it is an excellent school. Great teachers and principle. I would recommend this school to everyone.

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.
