My son is a first grader at this school and finished his Kindergarten with great success. He has made many friends and the classes are small so it allows for individual attention. The teachers are kind to students and attentive to their development. They keep the parents informed of the child's progress and are willing to meet with parents on a regular basis. My son brings homework everyday and tells me all about the new things he's learned in class. I like the fact that the school is diverse and there is positive atmosphere all around. I give this school a 5.

If your child gets assigned to this schoo, just say NO!!! This school has been a nightmare! There is a high tolerance for unacceptable behaviour and the children know it.. I give it ...no stars!

On my first trip to this school, As a grandmother from out of the area, I felt very welcomed by my grandson's teacher and the resource teacher. Other staff personnal were also helpful.

They are sensitive to the needs of students. They also work hard to keep parents informed of everything that the student does during the school day.

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.
