There is lots of parent involvement in our school. This is because of all of the extracuricular activities that go on to enrich my childs experience. There are the regular sports programs as well as music programs and homerwork clubs. however, there is a fantastic winter enrichement program at our school. For six fridays between winter break and mid-winter break my child is able to go up to snoqualmie pass and ski during school as long as they take lessons. There are other fun activities like rockclimbing, iceskating, arts, and karate (to name a few) that are availble for childrne not wanting to ski or board. Even though school time is is taken up by these activities me and my wife are very satisfied with the shcool because they still focus on education and meet standards.

I went to this school from 5-8th grade. I am currently a Junior at South Kitsap High School. I owe all that I am to this school. Salmon Bay School give children the freedom to discover who they are and enough structure to learn well. I will never forget my days there.

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.
