My children are new to this school. My son was targeted by some kids who didn't make him feel welcome. After contacting staff, they were able to eliminate any possible bullying. Now about my daughter, I approached her teacher several times to explain her intellect. The first time I felt ignored and the second time. The teacher was very defensive because I continued to approach her. I simply wanted to share with her my daughters prior experiences and achievements in past classes and other teachers. I was disappointed by the teachers reactions toward my concerns for my daughter. Regal does not have compassion or motivation to work with intelligent children, this is true! I am considering changing teachers or possibly the school.

This school is only good when your student is great. if your student is not so great, then be prepared to fight. my son is working at a higher grade level, but they dont care. he is super intelligent and the teachers dont like that. He gets treated like a trouble maker.

I have a 3rd and 6th grader that attend Regal. We were thinking about moving before our kids were school age but we are happy that e didn't. Regal has been a blessing to our kids and our whole family. We have been so impressed with all of the teachers and the staff. Our kids are excelling in school and enjoying it so much. I hear talk of Bullying at other schools but have not seen or heard of any of it at Regal. I spend time volunteering at the school as I feel it is important for our kids to feel supported and I have a job that allows me to be able to help. The teachers and staff are exceptional and really care about the kids!!!

My daughter attends the preschool for developmental delayed children at Regal, and I am very impressed with the school so far. She had transfered there in January. So far it has been great!

I am worried that the children and some of the volunteers are not always treated like first class citizens by the staff. Those parents who care about the children and their lives at school are often treated like bothersome poeple. It is very disappointing

My son is currently attending Regal Elementary and has been having issues with behavior. His teacher is very good about makin sure that she keeps an extra eye on him to stop any issues before they get too far. The principal wasn't very nice when I had to meet with her about the issue.

This school is a disappointment. My son is an overacheiver and there is not any programs at this level that can accomidate him. There also seems to be a shocking lack of responce to bullys (my son is being bullied and there has been no action being taken to remedy the situation). I am extremely disappionted in the school's administration. There does not appear to be any music or sports programs.

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.
