The princible of this school went out of her way! To make sure my son would succeed and when out of frustration he would not turn in homework she she met with me and gave my son a possitive reason to turn it in. There is one teacher there who started tutoring my son after school and encouraged his reading he went from a below kindergarden score to a fourth grade level in 5 months (was in 2nd grade) so I rate this school very highly Thanks

Overall, a good school. My only issue is with the teachers my son has had. They give out better grades than he deserves. Meaning, when he writes a paper that has spelling/gramatical errors, they will overlook it and still give him an A or B? Its almost as if they are afraid to correct my childs paper. I only speak from my personal experience, but my hope is that they all work on this issue, so we can produce the smartest kids possible.

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.
