The parents, teachers and principal work together as a team. Dutch hill is a family! Top notch education in a creative loving environment. The PTA is very active and helps bring events such as bringing the science center to the school, crazy scientist night and more. There is always something fun and educational going on at dutch hill. Our family feels so lucky to be a part of such a wonderful institution!

We love Dutch Hill! A brand new principal has created enthusiasm and a morale boost within the staff. One of their Kindy teachers was even a Golden Apple recipient in 2011. The PTA is growing and motivated to include all the school's families in their activities. From the librarian to the assistants in the cafeteria and playground, all the employees seem to have a gentle, caring way with the students. The new principals first goal was to know every child's name and can be found opening car doors during morning drop off. Three cheers for Dutch Hill!!!

The teachers and educational assistants and specialists are top notch. Unfortunately, the administration is not up to par. My daughter was groped on a bus and the principal did nothing until I confronted her with the district policy on sexual harassment. Even then, her effort was lackluster.

Strength appears in the dedication and perseverence of some of the teachers--true crusaders who deserve lifelong gratitude. But I don't see a ton of dynamic teaching or forward thinking here--the greatest responsibilities of public schools in the coming decades. As with everywhere in WA, WASL-prescribed teaching gobbles time and smothers creativity. Lastly the learning environment is unhealthy. Classrooms are tombs. Almost no natural light, poor ventilation. And the kids get little recess. The school is screaming for a ground-up overhaul. Afraid when the current district reconstruction projects are done, the district will be in the red until the end of time.

What an amazing school. Parent involment is high. Could use a remodel. but that does not effect the high quality of learning from caring teachers and staff.

My two children attended this school for one year. What I liked best about Dutch Hill is that the teachers and principle worked together as a team. Parents are involved, and the atmosphere is welcoming. The students appear happy, and there is alot of stability with the staff. Overall, a great school.

Wow! What a neat school. My kids have fantastic teachers. The staff is fun and encouraging while the principal is supportive and attentive. What a change from my years at Cascade View. Mrs. McPherson is a great teacher! Thanks to all of you who have helped me through the kinks and pushed us off to a terrific start! I look forward to the year.

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.
