This school is amazing. I couldn't ask for anything better. The principal gives everyone who walks through the door each morning a hearty, "Hello!" and always remembers your name. The whole school is very positive. They also participate in the Farm-to-Food program - food is very healthy, and junk food and candy is not allowed. Great!!!

Amazing school with a great staff and principal. Two of my three children go to this school and I wish my oldest could have. The difference between Windsor and her elementary is night and day. The teachers are happy to be there and love working with children. My youngest is in the half time kindergarten and absolutely loves going to school. He comes home everyday and tells me everything he has learned. My middle child has had the same experience. I am grateful for this school and staff!

My daughter transfer from another school in the county and loved it from day one. Teachers really take the time for students and the parents. You always get a warm welcome when you come through the doors.

Windsor has been an excellent example of a public school gone right. Low teacher to student ratios- and wonderful teachers who have time for the kids and parents.

Our child is in the full time Kindergarten program at Windsor, and is having a great experience. This is our third year at Windsor, as our child has been in the developmental pre-school for 2 years. Our experience has been wonderful! The teachers are well educated and seem to know a lot about other community resources. Our child looks forward to time in PE, library and music each week as well as her own classroom teacher. At the recent Open House we had a long talk with the classroom teacher who was genuine about her commitment to giving our child a great Kindergarten year. We have worked well with the 'Resource' room and special education instructors. Overall I have found this school to be personal in their commitment to our family.

My child went to kindergarten and first grade here, we didn't know how great we had it. That is until we had to leave. I loved this school, the low teacher student ratio's, the experience of the teachers. Excellent school with wonderful teachers, a great atmosphere and an ideal learning envirnment! Would give anything to go back.

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.
