They just need to fix up the cafeteria more and other things like that. I guess it's not a bad school.

My child went to this school and i've been there many times. Some of the children looked like gangsters, and some looked very sophisticated; but they were all very smart and kind when i entered classrooms to help. They obeyed teachers and respected rules. I cant see why they should be one of the best schools in the district.

Our 2 older kids went to Meeker. We were very pleased with the education they received. Northwood Middle School was supposed to be better. Our 3rd child attended Northwood and we were very disappointed! Bad behavior was allowed in classes very often. The teachers were, at best, adequate. Many took a role of 'babysitter' instead of 'educator'. If we had another child, we would sent them to Meeker!

My daughter is going into junior high for the first year. And this school seems to be pretty good and safe.

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.
