As a parent of 3 children attending Naches schools, I am so appreciative of the individual attention that is given to my children by their teachers. Almost every teacher that my children have had in this district are very open to parent input, and have shown compassion toward my children and nurturing of their education, while establishing expectations in all areas of academia. We love this school district!

I think it is sad that one frustrated parent who found a better educational path for their child felt the need to blast our school on their way out of our state. The school has an incredible staff that cares about the success of the students. Hopefully people are smart enough to not make assumptions based on one opinion but some people believe everything they read on the internet as the truth.

I guess I'll let it have one star, although it does not deserve it. My child was labeled as 'insubordinate.' Actually, she was bored stiff and terribly frustrated by the 'dumbing down' of the class. She had skipped a grade and was still bored so she went into an online school experience, has skipped two more grades, and has scored in the 98th percentile overall. Oh, yeah, she passed her WASL tests--every one of them, thus helping Naches in the overall performance placement of Yakima County schools. We're leaving Washington...too many teachers with ego-based objectives. My children are bright and they shall excel in college, but no thanks to Naches...we found a better deal. Check out the standardized testing of Naches students...you'll see what I mean.

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.
