This school everyday become butter.. Yes it needs your care and your fallow up about your kids status and improvement, but they are always there to support you and help you and they really care about your kids.

The whole school is centered around ESL students and families. Art and music is not taught here. My student received low grade on social studies because her class had not covered the material. My experience is there is no discernment and ALO does not occur. There are very few teachers who go to the PTA meetings.

Olympic Hills has been wonderful to both of my kids. Caring teachers who want to see the kids suceed. Zoe Jenkins who is the Principle of Olympic Hills is dedicated and commited to providing not only a quality and fullfilled education but also a genuine sense of respect for those that you deal with day in and day out. Hats of to ALL of the teachers of Olympic Hills and ALL of the staff. You are marvelous and Im going to miss you ALL after this year (2003-2004).

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.
