I feel That our school has a good group of solid teachers. I have had great response from all the teachers that my 3 children have had. I feel that the principal has a presence but parents don't see her enough. The vice principal is very seasoned with kids and parents and knows most of the kids by name. Which is a good quality. He listens to them and the parents and makes them feel welcome and at ease. The pod concept works well. The four core teachers that work together to make our children have a better learning experience for their specific way of learning is a great way to let the teachers plan for the group of kids they are working with. Junior high is a tough age and our school does its best.

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.
