As a teacher at Satus I have seen so much growth in our teachers, administrators and students. The gains that we have made over the past few years are amazing. I am proud to be a teacher working in such a fine school 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.
