I have been very pleased with the school since the day before school started For my first son in kindergarten. The teachers I have been attentive, the principal is fantastic. The PTA is very involved and it's a pleasure sending my children to school there, For learning, friends, and the overall environment of learning and growing up. I have a kindergartner and a fourth grader.

I was at tiffany park for 5 years and it has paid off. Their education is great! i love it here. I have very good memories of this place. :)

Tiffany Park is a terrible school! They put me in math with the 4th graders because my mother didn't want me in the classroom with the reg. ed 5th grade math. Don't choose this school.

I'm a former student and I only have good memories of this school and I know it's only gotten better. They put a lot of time and effort into education and making sure the facilities are new and have everything the kids need.

My daughter attends Tiffany Park Elementary in the 3rd Grade. She attended schools in different locations such as, Fresno California and Talbot Hill Elementary in Renton, Washington. I have never seen her so happy to get up and go to school every day. She comes home every day and does her homework. I am required by her teacher to review her homework and sign off on it. I like this because I am able to support her better. As a child I also attended Tiffany Park Elementary, which was a long time ago. I enjoyed attending school there and I continued to grow up with all the students through high school. It was a wonderful experience for me and I hope it will be for her too. I really appreciate the new building also.

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.
