Chief Kamiakin school struggles with a largely disinterested student body for whom the English language can be problematic. Teachers here range as at any school from dedicated professionals to people punching a clock and waiting for retirement.

I love the preschool program! The teachers really challenge the kids and they love what they do. I am so glad my son was able to get in the program. I hope my younger children will be able to benefit from it too. Hooray for preschool!

I feel that Chief Kamiakin is a student oriented school where the teachers and administration make their decesions based on what is best for students.

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.
