We moved to MLT over 3 years ago and switch schools 2 years ago- it was a hard decision I really liked the school district we were at and didn't mind driving - but when they couldn't get my youngest in Kindergarden we decided to switch and I love being so close to the school. The teachers so far have been great and they really care for the students. Go Cedar Way

Cedar Way Elementary is the best because it has amazing teachers. They have high expectations for all students (general ed and special ed). They include everyone in activities! My students favorite activity this year was a Poetry Cafe.

Cedar Way is a great school. I attend this school and it is so fun! We get to learn a lot while having fun, so I always look foward to go to school in the morning. The students are great and they respect eachother. We have a monthly assembly so we can get awarded on our perseverance throughout the month. The teachers are encouraging and they also make our classtime great by making us laugh a couple times.

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.
