My son has been at Lidgerwood Elementary since Kindergarten and is now entering third grade. We have had such an amazing experience with this school, especially with the staff and principle. I have never seen a principle more involved with the day to day happening. She is always positive and warm even in challenging situations. My son has ADHD and has lots of behavioral issues. I never once felt that teachers were frustrated with him as we have experienced with other preschool teachers and before and after school teachers. The teachers were always giving positives even when times got tough. He is now at the top of the class academically and I truly believe this is because of the love of learning that Lidgerwood and its staff has helped develop in my son. I am forever grateful for all their hard work. I would recommend this school to anyone!

I just attended the Veterans Assembley at Lidgerwood. I stood upfront with several other Veterans. I was never more honored to be a Veteran than I was today! I thank the Staff, the Teachers and the Student Body for how they Honored all of the Veteran that were there/ not there for the assembly. They all did a fabulous job of putting this program together.

This school is very informative; it gives you about a week's notice for fieldtrips and any school activity. The teachers and people in the office are very friendly and seem to answer my questions very clearly with no confusion.

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.
