Snoqualmie Elementary School is the model of what an excellent elementary school should be. The teachers and staff are superb and the principal is hands-on, responsive, and caring. The PTSA is very active and puts on great events for students and families. Our child's instructors have been top-notch and our son has really blossomed in his first two years. His teachers have also been very responsive in challenging him in ways that meet his learning level. We live on the ridge and were re-zoned to SES from Cascade View. We could not be happier with the change. SES is without a doubt the premiere elementary school in the district and really sets the standard. The extra mile or two from our house to SES (compared to CVES) is far worth it considering the greater benefits we are receiving from having our kids at SES.

Snoqualmie is a growing town and the Valley itself it constantly changing. We live on Snoqualmie Ridge and always assumed we would go to the local school on the Ridge. With the new change, we were reassigned to Snoqualmie Elementary and could not be happier. Snoqualmie Elementary, the PTSA there, and staff should be the model for how its done - they have it right here. This school is so hands on, cares about the kids and parents, has so many after school activities and family nights. I am giddy with the school and staff. The principal is hands down one of the best in the district. My children are challenged and love going to Snoqualmie Elementary.

Love this school. Have 3 kids and we've been in many schools. This one is the best. Great staff, friendly environment, wonderful principal. Reminds me of how education should be: a fun learning environment.

We cannot say enough good things about this school. Our child is on a IEP program and has blossomed at SES. Every person we have contacted responds quickly. Each and every person on the SES team cares and strives to do right for the kids. They do not look for excuses when encountering challenges - they find solutions. In addition they respect our child's IEP status and do not make excuses for it. They teach children with special needs to leverage their strengths and manage their challenges. They create opportunities for success. This school is about children excelling in their lives.

My daughter will be finishing up her second year at SES. I couldn't be happier with the school. The principal is wonderful and the staff is very caring, friendly and involved in the kids' education. I've been very happy with my daughters' education there thus far and have myself volunteered at the school several times and feel very comfortable there and welcomed. It's like one big family.

This school is great. The principle is a caring and exemplary educator. The grounds are nice with a beautiful new park next door. Parental involvement is good.

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.
