My granddaughter has attended Parkside for two years and I couldn't be happier! The entire staff, from Mr. Williams, the pricncipal, to her classroom teachers and Mr. Thummel, P.E., are fantastic. All the office and support staff are friendly and make each child feel special. I was very pleased and surprised by the methods each grade 's curriculm was presented and the way this school has nurtured a positive self image and planted the seeds of desire for education. Thank you Parkside! Special thanks to Mr. Williams and Mrs. Johnson. (all day kindergarten)

My child goes to this school. The teacher is 5 star, but the principle needs to be replaced. My child is one of a few who was a victim in case where there was unwanted and unappropriate touching by another student. The principle didn't even suspend the kid, even after the police had been involved! The matter was brought before the superintendent and was thankfully resolved. This was just one occasion, there have been multiple acts of wrong doing, and it seems like the principle doesn't want to do anything about these kids doing wrong things. My child has been to a few different schools and this is the WORST school she has ever been to. The only reason I give it two stars is for the 5 star teacher. At least some of the staff is good.

My child loves to come to school everyday and is upst when he/she is sick and unable to go to school. This tells me that he/she has a great caring teacher. Not only have his/her math grades come up but he/she understands what she is doing. Excellent communication back and forth between the teachers and I. The reading program and extracurricular activiteis could use improvement. There is a big difference between Parkside Elementary and Tenino Elementary when it come to fun school social events that happen in the evenings. We could step up on this a bit. Overrall I am satisfied with the education my child recieves.

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.
