This school is doesn't offer the kids the help they need to make. They just throw homework thinking this th solution to learn. I don't like this school my son has had the hardest time at this school.

My children have been at this school since pre-school and are now in the 3rd and 5th grade there. The teachers and other staff there are great and really care about the childrens 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.
