My child has just started high point and I love the school, so professional
—Submitted by a parent


Posted April 2, 2006

High Point has gotten such a bad rap over the past few years. What I see in this school is hardworking students, teachers, and families making magic together. There are plans for the 2006 - 2007 school year to be infused with art experiences including local artists in residents as well as plenty of arts infused educational experiences for students. Academically teachers work hard to meet the diverse learning needs of a diverse community. Students are challenged and engaged. They are learning problem solving and communication skills that will serve them their entire lives. It is a pleasure to be involved in this school.
—Submitted by a teacher

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.
