My son is in Kindergarten at Lincoln Heights and he loves everything about the school. He is always so excited to go to school. The principle met us on the first day of school and made it a point to introduce himself to all the parents! The teacher has given many opportunities for parents to be apart of the learning process which means a lot to me. The reading program they have there is amazing. My son has excelled in ways I didn't fully expect. We are currently moving out of district and are having a very hard time finding another school that meets or beats the expectations this elementary school as a whole has given me.

My daughter has been at this school for 2 yrs now. It has been a wonderful journey with wonderful teachers. The teachers seem to genuinely care. They have shown patience and kindness, have given extra help when asked, taken the time to actually get to know the kids. It saddens me that next year my daughter will have to attend a different 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.
