This has been a great school for my kindergartner. Wonderful and nice office staff and teachers! I can't rate principle leadership because they are changing principles this year. But the previous principle was very involved and knows her students. She will be missed.

The teachers and staff are wonderful and they really improved my child's education once he started going there. He has since moved on to junior high, but i look forward to my younger son going there next year.

This is a terrible school. The 3rd grade course work is equivalent to 1st grade at my daughter's previous school. In my child's class, the students exhibit boredom and enniu, not joy. My child would be better off watching the Disney Channel for 6 hours per day than attending this travesty of education.

I went to E.P.O. for 7 years( kindergarten thru 6th grade) and I loved it! E.P.O. isn't too big or small and they look at each student as an individual. All of the teachers care about if you are learning the material or not. If you don't understand something, they get right in there and help you understand it. I learned alot when I went there and I will never forget anyone there!

I love this school. I have my son in a different one because we had moved and I am kicking myself each day and hoping for an open enrollment for next year. My son and myself love this school. The staff is wonderfull and friendly and involved and treats each and every student the same. I hope to see them next year.

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.
