This school is the nicest and friendliest school i know. All the students are very friendly! The students have lots and lots of school spirit. All of the staff are super nice and are really funny and some are wierd! There are laughs everyday! Cant wait till it starts getting remodeled next year!

I go to Stewart right now. Its a great school and i love the staff so much. I'd say out of the 5 middle schools i been to, the students seem to get along better here.I think its the enviroment. Unfortunatly all of the staff is getting fired this year, it seems like the teachers be trippin and stuff. not really makin us work- exept for ms. Arellano she is a great teacher and she pushes us to suceed. And Ms. Church is Awesome. I love this school and the spirit type vibe that surrounds eeryone. However there is one problem.... Mr.Hunter the security guard needs to be fired. He allows fights to happen and does not do anything to prevent bullying. If i didnt know better id say he provokes it with his own actions. Well thats my look at it :)

I got to this school. I would say there are a lot of behavior problems, more than other schools. Also, some of the teachers aren't very understanding! Sometimes general rules don't make sense.

well me and my husband went there when we were young and now our daughter goes there. the principle that is there now 2006-2007 mrs.bahr was actually our science teacher. my child loves the school and has been going there for 1-1/2 years she says that the teacher there are very helpful and understanding but her favorite is the choir teacher mrs.belanger. I wouldn't transfer her from this school ever. it has a lot of memories there and to me that means a lot.

My daughter just graduated from Stewart. What an awesome bunch of teachers. Ms Fortson, the band teacher, should be nominated for Teacher of the Year! She cares so much for her students and gives so much of her time to them. She is definitely our favorite!

The teachers at this school at least 4 years ago were the greatest. They used humor as well as caring in thier teaching. My Daughter had a very good time in her 3 years there. She looks back and can remember every teacher who touched her life. There are many. Thanks to all the teachers for doing a great job. I have more children coming your way.

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.
