This is my two daughters first year at Fruitland and they absolutely love it. They both made friends quickly, the teachers are all very kind hearted and there are numerous activities for the students to be involved in.

I love Fruitland. My son has an amazing teacher and the support staff are wonderful. The new classrooms alleviated the overcrowding and the technology is top notch.

Fruitland is a wonderful overall school. Yes it is overcrowded, but the staff and students look beyond the crowding and find the positive and expand on that. Thanks Fruitland

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.
