Beautiful facility and wonderfully dedicated staff.The Principal demonstrates incredible enthusiasm and appears to know each students name! The teachers are equally committed and even the lunch staff are fully engaged in providing the very best for each child.

Excellent school! Warm environment--staff makes effort for parents and children to be comfortable. Very much a community atmosphere. Amazing academic program, all execl above average. Standards are just set higher without a lot of jabber. Recent turnover in pricipals makes that hard to rate.

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.
