This is a family involved school. Many of the teachers easily identify each child's learning style and adjust their teaching approach to achieve successful learning. Some grades have a combination class, but not to worry. Each student works with their appropriate level. They may join another group during the day whether they are ahead or having difficulty so they stay engaged in learning and not stressed. Since this school is out in the country, many social events happen each month at the school to bond families in the community. The facilities are up-to-date with technology, buildings are clean and well maintained while the grounds have a covered recess area and all-weather rubber track.

Cape Horn Skye has been a terrific school since kindergarden for our two kids-already they are in the 3rd & 5th grades. It's so refreshing to experience teachers & parents strongly committed to the development of children within our community- I am always impressed with the teachers & staff warmly saying hello to a father they do not see often enough helping out in school- I wonder if they know how much I admire the hard work & effort they put forth each day? While I'm stuck in traffic & the congestion of the 'big city' sometimes far away, it is very comforting to know my kids are at school- just up the 'River Road'. I am very confident knowing my children will grow up appreciating the rural upbringing and the postive experience of a great education attending Cape Horn Skye elementary school. Signed, An Appreciative & Proud Father

The best school I've ever seen, hands down. It's small, which means that the staff knows your name. The classes are almost all combos, which means that a child who needs extra help and attention can almost always find his or her way into somewhere that they will get it. And since it's out in the middle of nowhere, they have a sheriff's office on-site, so the kids (and parents!) feel safe.

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.
