Marrion Elementary is an EXEMPLARY school! Both of my daughters have attended Marrion since Kindergarten (one is in 6th grade now, and I have one daughter in 4th grade.) EXCELLENT STAFF with a shared vision for sucess! Our family could not be happier with our Marrion experience!

I just transferred my son to this school this year. I am so happy about my decision. At his last school he was not given the help he needs and fell behind as a result. At Marrion they realized right away that he needed help in reading and got it for him. And they actually communicate with me!! My son is doing so well now, he is happy to go to school in the mornings and actually likes reading!!

WONDERFUL SCHOOL! We could not be happier. The staff at Marrion is absolutely the best. Mr. Hill, Mr. Deveraux and Mrs. Bier are all top notch teachers. My children look forward to going to school every morning. I would say this school is one of the best in the district!

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.
