Hey So I go to hidden river middle school and I have a lot of fun! The band teacher is great and really pushes you! The band has had 9 Superior Ratings! They are great. The principal is leaving this year which really sucks. I will really miss her! The sciecence teacher is great cause they are 2nd in state for The Science MSP> School is great!


Posted May 10, 2010

The principal is great, but is leaving next year. I have been unable to get one teacher to respond to my e-mails and calls when my son is not doing well in her class. The staff is young and competent. The class sizes were big this year with 36 kids in the 8th grade classes. The classrooms were built for 28. Not much to offer in the way of electives. Band or other. That was suppose to get better if the levy passed, which I think didn't happen this year. Some of the teachers are excellent and the building is almost new.

Great school! The teachers are very supportive, there are lots of clubs/sports, and it floods into a great high school

Support for this school in the community is great. The staff is excellent and the principal is great. There are so many programs, sports, and and other extra curriculars to get involved with. The music department is excellent and the drama group puts on a great production every year. I highly reccomend this school.

I'm not a parent, but instead a student and there is music programs, (band, jazz band, pep band, and soon to be choir)as far as I know there are no art programs, but many sports (volleyball, football, basketball) and extracurricular activities (math and reading clubs for before and after school.) Parents are pretty involved with monthly progress reports, that MUST be signed, the teachers are patient, and we get pretty indiviual attention, our principal is great, and even though he's new this year, loves this school, and you can really tell. Thank you for reading this, even though I am but a student.

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.
