Posted October 3, 2009

Wing Luke is a culturally diverse neighborhood school. Its teachers and administration are exceptional and its parents are concerned and supportive. It is one of the two schools in the Seattle School District that can boast of a dance program that is exceptional. It is a microcosim of what our world should look like.

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.
