Not only did I attend this school as a child my daughter is now there. The building are familiar and the atomsphere is the same. Parents are made to feel welcome and encouraged to be a part of their child's education. Children are happy and learning.

I supervise teacher candidates who teach science in an after school program at Kirkwood. I am very impressed with the facility, the staff, and the students. Kirkwood has a lot of which to be proud

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.
