Actually I went to school here and I don't appreciate all the bad reps. Wapato gets sure it has its flaws but its actually a great community. It has diversity so many cultures. Sure the schools are totally great but they're not so bad. I've gone to Wapato my whole life and its gone pretty great I don't believe a school should get a bad reputation just because of a few rotten apples. I've seen so many different schools with articles about what programs they have and very few about Wapato. Wapato is basically based on cultures. At the middle school for example, they have peer mediation, 5 different clubs (A.Y.O.,M.E.Ch.A.,E.U.R.O., Indian, AND Cub Club). Also many teachers have tutoring programs so students get help after school. I believe that people should see the good in schools not just the bad. Don't knock it untill you've tried it.

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.
