I love how individualized Echo Lake is. Each kid learns at different rates and ways, but that is expected there. No one is singled out and no one is left out. Another amazing part of Echo Lake is their focus and recognition for character development. It most important to grow a generation of respectful, honest, caring young people because the academics will come. My third favorite thing about Echo Lake is the diversity of cultures. I've watched my neighbor become fluent and confident in her english in a short time. The more exposed to other cultures at a young age, the more effective they will be as adults in the working world.

I really appreciate what this school has done for my daughter. She joined the class last October when our family moved from Korea. It was the first time for her to step on the ground of a foreign country. She couldn't speak even a bit of English. But, Mrs. Lohman did a great job for my kid as well as the other children. My daughter didn't have any problem with learning the new culture and getting along with new friends. Now she speaks English like a native American kid. She was selected as the student of month last month. I can't express my appreciation enough...

Thanks for a great job teaching our children. I greatly appreciate the caring role of dedicated teachers such as Mrs. Loehman, Mrs. Keys and Mr. Irish. You are having a positive effect on the lives of the children in your class! The academics and overall high standards at Echo Lake are very encouraging to me as an educator for almost 30 years.

I found the academic program of this school comparable to the private Christian school my son was in his first year. There is good communication between school and parents; your questions get answered expeditiously. There isn't alot of sports available at this school. With it's proximity to Shoreline pool it'd be nice for the elementary schools in Shoreline to have a swim program. In addition, a drama program would be nice. There is alot of parent involvement and students seem to be well-behaved and disciplined. Although I think I've spoken to the principal once in 3 years.

I had 2 boys complete go through Echo Lake. They received music instruction, along with excellent classroom management. Teachers care and are highly trained. Students try their best. Good diversity within school. It was a very good training ground before middle school. Lots of community recreational activities and facilities. The Richmond Football League and baseball league was excellent with lots of parent support.

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.
