We moved from out of state and enrolled our three daughters in Hough. It was no coincidence that all three of there teachers were helpful, energetic and positive. The teaching staff is young and vital. The staff is friendly and welcoming. My children love this school.

Excellent staff (young and enthusiastic), active PTA, pool next door, daycare on sight, yearly St. Pat's day parade, arts and academics well supported. Lots of intervention creates a safe environment but some of the children can have serious issues brought from home that can impact learning for all.

The environment is friendly to both parents and students. The principal and staff go out of their way to try and accommodate all learners. Hough also has a pool and gives every class 1-2 weeks of swimming lessons. There seems to be a lot of parent and community involvement in Hough. Overall my family is very happy with this school.

I think that Hough Elementry is a very excellent school. Sarah McPartland was one of the most great teachers that ever lived. My daughter absolutely adors her. But the whole school is wonderfull, they have great classes too. They have arts block every thursday that includes a rotation of art, music, and physical education. The teachers are very well educated and so concerned about each and every childs education. In conclusion I would highly recomend Hough Elementry to all parents looking for their child to have a very great Elementry expirience and have fun while doing so. Thank you- Katrina

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.
