We transferred here from a high profile private school. Since my child has been at this school he has improved in every subject area dramatically. He came home from the first day proclaiming that he goes to a real, bully free school. Terrific parent support and stupendous teachers makes this school a gem.

Olympic View is a wonderful school. The staff really cares about your children and their education. This is a top notch school.

Parental and Teacher involvement is off the charts. I stopped by for the Valentine's Day party for kindergarten and there were 19 parents for a class of 26 students.

Olympic View Elementary has the best staff and students of any school. Our staff and students care about each other and about helping our earth. They actively compost leftover food from lunches, grow plants to sell at the annual plant sale, and recycle faithfully. My three children have all attended Olympic View and I wouldn't have it any other way.

We had a couple kids in Kindergarten there and they loved it. We are highly pleased with the wonderful teacher, Mrs. Heindl. Unfortunately for the school, Principal Moynihan will be at a school in Serbia in 2008+. Loads of fun activities, high parent involvement.

Excellent teaching and administrative staff. Parent support of all activities is above average. Extra curricular activities are a plus at this school. Variety of in class/school activities is above average. Class size is excellent. Computer use is excellent. Great playground. My only complaint is that the carpet needs to be replaced throughout the school.

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.
