We think Badger Mountain Elementary is great. My kids have had fantastic teachers who tailor their teaching to the individual strengths and challenges of each student. The principal is very involved with school events and is also accessible if you have a question or problem.

Best principal in the school district. Strong parent involvement. Emphasis on reading. Many extracurricular activities such as Spanish enrichment, Chess Club, Destination Imagination, etc.

The principal allowed bullying and there was absolutely no discipline. There was no parent participation to speak of. We transferred to a private school in the middle of the year in order to get a good education!

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.
