This is not a good school. I have 2 kids that go here and they both ended up in Special Education. They were doing great in school until we moved here and they started going to school here.

My child had a productive year. He received a lot of positive reinforcements. This is the 3rd school my son attended and he really excelled in the Lakeridge environment. The teachers work well together.The kids enjoy a yard with a georgous view.

I feel that Lakeridge's curriculm is very poor. I have kids in 2nd and 3rd grade and I feel the things they are being taught is for at least a grade below. The only reason they are up to grade level is because I also teach them at home. Next year they will be leaving Lakeridge.

Great school with wonderful teacher support. Parents involvement seems to be lacking though.

This is an awesome school with a lot of potential to change the lives of children. Please keep it a K-5 school. The staff is very dedicated to helping each student learn.

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.
