We moved to Washougal in December of 2013, and were concerned at the fact our 7th grader was in the Jemtegaard boundary due to the posts on Greatschools. However, we have pleasantly surprised. The school is not perfect, but there is definitely a change. They have a new principal with new ideas. There definitely are a couple of teachers our student had that I was less than impressed with, primarily with the lack of direction for the students and the lack of concern for children's grades. Despite these challenges, the school is better than average and our student will remain there next year. I believe that I, as a parent, could make the school better by getting more involved.

Jemtegaard is the worst school my children have ever attended. I have two kids that currently attend. Much of the staff is grumpy, rude, arrogant, unapproachable, and seem to dislike or hate their job and or students. They have little respect for the kids and don't care what parents have to say in regards to anything. They rule by fear. They are extremely unorganized and are almost never prepared for anything. Staff walks around like they are waiting for someone else to pick up the ball. They don't follow threw with what they say they will. No/few fun activities for the kids. This is not a happy productive school. WHS is wonderful, great staff. Happy High School kids (I have one there too) that have great Staff want to help our kids succeed. WE HATE JMS Passionately!!

My daughter attended 6th grade at Jemtegaard and I was very unhappy with the lack of availability of advanced classes. They don't have enough books for all students and they lack structure for the students. We have moved her to Canyon Creek Middle School and we love it. If you want a more in depth curriculum then this is not the school for you. Also, lot's of issues this year with bullying and fighting among the girls.

I am really impressed with Jemtegaard. The teachers are always helpful. My son is in the 7th Grade. His teachers show concern and always keep a line of communication going when it comes to his progress.

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.
