My daughter is a Kindergartner at Lince Elementary and my experience with the teachers and aids is great so far. Her teacher is kind, patient and soft spoken with the little ones. :)

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.
