this school year that just ended were my two youngest first time ever in public school. They had a hard time adjusting but they fell in love with the school. the principal and staff at this school were very supportive. My children came home everyday with something new to show or tell me. The teachers are excellent teachers who want to see their students succeed. I am glad I decided to let them attend this school and they are already talking about the upcoming school year.

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.
