Browne is a great school. The teachers and staff really care about all of the kids. They believe in the kids and are doing what it takes to make the kids achieve success. We have a new principle this year and she is wonderful. It's obvious that the children at Browne are her top priority. She has a positive attitude and is promoting leadership, pride, honesty, caring, etc, as well as good academic skills. We at Browne are very lucky to have her.

My special needs twins go to this school, and I love how caring the Therapist's are, and the teaching staff, and the office staff...I guess I love everyone there.

Just like any other public school there is not much control on some inner school policies. Controlled by the bureaucracy there are some policies that are not in the best interest of the children that go on here. If it were not for the good teachers this school would rank badly.

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.
