My child went to school from 1st to 5th grade and she loved it! Her teachers were amazing, kind, and always showing the kids how fun and easy learning could be. The principal knew every child by name, and knew about them, she was very into the students, and in classrooms most of the day. All of the staff try their best to make the school a safe enviornment to learn, and express themselves. This is a wonderful place to have your child go to school.

My child went Brown last year and I was disappointed. The curriculum was weak, the expectations low, and the classroom disorderly. I got very little work back until I complained. I was told my child had been working on an ongoing assignment and was doing well, but I found out after half a year he had done virtually nothing. Nobody was checking his work!

LP Brown has been a fantastic environment for my daughter. They are very conscientious about meeting the needs of the individual student, and academics are a high priority. Parents are welcomed into the classroom, and I often see parents contributing by helping with bulletin boards, art displays and classroom activities. They value each students expression and provide a safe atmosphere. The principal spends lots of time in classes and apparently knows every child by name. This is a great place to enroll your child!

This school works very hard to meet the needs of general ed and IEP students. We have both in our house and they have bent over backward to assist both our children in meeting their potential.

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.
