This is a school where you walk in and feel like part of a family. Staff care about kids and do everything necessary to help them succeed!

Robert Frost is a wonderful school. The staff is hard working and dedicated. the biggest problem is that the Principal keeps changing! Robert Frost will have it's 4th new principal in about 7 years. I wonder why the superentendent is using my childrens' school as a training ground for 1st year principals.

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.
