The staff at Trent is amazing! My daughter has been there for four years now and the very few issues that have come up have been dealt with in a timely and appropriate fashion. The school offers an on-site, after-school program through the YMCA, which is abnormal in most of the schools outside of EVSD. The teachers have been there for some time and are familiar with most of the children. Trent has been getting progressively better over the years regarding EC activities. Most parents of Trent students are either single parents, dual-income families or foster families who simply do not have the time to attend activities. Therefore, the activities Trent does offer are created to be working-parent friendly (Doughnuts for Dads, Muffins for Moms are in the early AM) and they give back to the community when they can.

Excellent and dedicated faculty, very flexable and forward looking approach to educating our young people. Do a terrific job in working with problem children and special needs kids.

Trent has a dedicated and well-coordinated faculty. The facility is very good, and includes a full auditorium in addition to a gym, a rarity among elementary schools. The building was remodeled within the last few years. Music and art programs are available. Extracurricular activities are below average. Parental involvement is dismal. PTA is virtually non-existent. With both (or single) parents working, involvement diminishes. Problem students are somewhat higher at this school than the average in the Spokane area.

Trent Elementary is a gem. The staff is experienced and dedicated, and the principal seems to have unlimited enthusiasm and energy. Because it is a 'Schoolwide' Title One school, Trent faculty and staff have created an ongoing school improvement plan. This plan is impressive in the way that it organizes the school s educational goals in a truly focused and workable way. Committees work toward improving specific areas such as literacy, math, professional development, and parent involvement. Due to budget cuts, after school sports were eliminated in 2003 district-wide, but EVSD is working with the local YMCA to start a new elementary-level sports program. The PTA is small, but PTA leadership is working with Trent staff to find ways to encourage parental involvement. Kudos to the staff and faculty at Trent Elementary for working so hard to make it an excellent public school!

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.
