Reeves is an outstanding school with dedicated staff and administrators that put kids needs first. Students are the wonderful and create a caring community. Parent support is second to none. Overall, this school meets every criteria for a 5 star rating. Rising test scores, caring adults, and community support-- all of the ingredients are at this "hidden jewel"school.

This school is not okay. I have had way more problems then any other school I have gone to. I have been called names that are unmentionable. I have also got my phone stolen and almost into fights. But, the teachers are amazing........

Reeves is smaller than the other Middle schools in the district which has its ups and downs. The administration is really great. They are very strong on anti-bullying, and are visible in the halls- not to pick on kids, but to make sure all the kids know they're under supervision- which I think is good. In general, there are really nice kids there, but of course, these are Middle School kids, there are still some cliques. Mr Sebring (math), Mr Anderson (science) and Mrs Sartori (orchestra) are fabulous teachers.

I Really like this school all friends are here and Mrs Kressin she just retried this year and she is really nice but i wish she hadn't move to Virgina or retired.

Reeves is an amazing school. Students are very nice and very smart. Great test scores for WASL. And great teachers. The facility was amazing and at orientation I was definitely impressed. A great school for 6th-8th grade students. Students learn much and get to know so many other great children. I would definitely reccomend to another family.

6th grade was exceptional due to a great teacher, Adam Teachout. I've been less impressed with the 7th grade faculty. Communication has been poor and the teachers seem to have a lot of personal shortcomings that create adversarial relationships with students. Its a difficult age to work with and not a lot of incentive. We'll be changing schools for 8th grade next year due to a move but if we weren't moving I'd consider changing anyway. I've heard and witnessed that this school's quality continues to decline from 6th to 8th grade. Not the brightest faculty overall.

Outstanding school for learning and superb in preparing my kids for High School. My son who is attending OHS is well prepared and very at ease with his subjects in Math, Science and English.

I have have been associated with this school for 4 yrs now. As with any school, there are problems. However, I feel this school does its best to address each situation for a betterment of the school and student. They could use a cheerleading team and the football program could use a little help. I would have to say this is an average school. I would love to see a public school advance beyond average and more parents volunteer their time.

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.
