Family involvement and solid leadership contributes to the success of Maple Elementary. Teachers & staff are truly engaged in the education of their students. Peer support is encouraged with students. Simple & proven teaching principals make Maple an outstanding choice.

Maple is all we could hope for in a school. The atmosphere is a positive one that encourages learning. The teachers and staff are warm and welcoming. The writing-based academic program is strong; the test scores are impressive. Parent involvement is excellent. We chose Maple over 12 schools in our area because it is truly international with excellent support for bilingual learners and a wonderful consciousness as part of a world community. The concept is an open one, and that includes open-minded. Teachers and students work well together. Safety and community are top priorities. The principal is hand-on with a terrific vision for the school. Our remodel project has just been approved by the Seattle School Board; we will be adding a building, expanding programs, and opening an early childhood education center. If you want a dynamic school with a studious environment of diverse learners, Maple is an excellent choice!

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.
