I think the school is normal. It has many small details that can be easily fixed. I eat my lunch early and dont wait long. It's great. There is no bullying.

Posted September 3, 2004

This school is okay. they need to make the hallways bigger so that students can fit through. The quincy jonior high also needs to hurry the lunch line or make lunch longer. My kid only gets five minutes to eat and spends the other 25 minutes waiting in the lunch line. Now what realy makes me mad is my daughter having to spend 2 hours in language arts. That is not right. Okay I what to be nice. The teacher's are great. This school needs some fixing up.

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.
