Marshall Elementary is an excellent school, with a dedicated, committed staff! I could not be more pleased with my experience at Marshall! The entire staff has a "shared vision" and high expectations. It is a warm, friendly environment, and parents always feel welcome!

Posted June 23, 2005

My child attended George C. Marshall Elementary school this past year and it was a very fruitful and pleasant experience for our entire family. I did not have to worry about his well being and he got a great education. The teacher he had this year was a first year teacher. She was a joy. Every day she inspired the children. I've never experienced a better teacher. It weighs heavily upon the teacher for an overall positive experience. I found this teacher to be exceptional. Everyone there was friendly and polite. The school grounds and classrooms were very neat and clean. The school ran smoothly. The parent participation was appreciated and the children were free to express themselves and join in the celebrations for many holidays. The school is a huge benefit to the children as the open friendly positive environment really encourages learning and cooperation.

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.
