My daughter has attended this school for 2yrs, it has been the worst imaginable. The principal although nice has no back bone to run the school, the teacher she has this yr has put in medical risk twice, and is very unfriendly. If this were a daycare I promise my child would only have attended a short time, the bullying is horrible and not results have been seen this far

This school is okay for a kindergarder to attend. As for all the other grades i dont know. I am a active parent for my two children that where blessed with two great teachers this year. But as for other teachers all i can say is i see very few smiles from them and to much yelling.

Beverly Park at Glendale definitely has great Reading and Math programs. I was very happy to see that they were able to place my daughter in her level of reading, so that she was able to challeng herself. My daughter really likes this warm and friendly school. This is her second year at Beverly Park. Teachers are really excelling their students to reach their highest goal. I have volunteered Beverly Park last year and have personally met several wonderful and friendly staff members, that are available to assist you anytime. The principal at Beverly Park is extremely wonderful. She sets a wonderful example as a leader and a distinctive individual!

Many wonderful teachers and staff. This school is very diverse. Small PTA, but accomplishes a great deal for the school, the children and their families through family activity nights, paying for field trips, and buying books/ equiptment.

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.
