Posted June 5, 2008

We have attended Maya for two years. My daughter has had Mrs. Marone for her teacher. This school has been GREAT and Mrs. Marone is FANTASTIC! Last year the principal had issues - but this year the new principal is GREAT! The entire staff has a new great attitude and the school is doing great! The teachers do have way too much on their plate - and how they find time to actually 'teach' is beyond me. But they do and do it in great fashion. This school has a poor score- but it is based on the stupid WASL. That test should be burned - so rest assured that this school is FAR greater than the great schools rating shows!

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.
