Newbery is a K2-5th grade school that offers parents and students a quality experience. Newbery has a healthy PTSA and volunteer base with good presence within the school. The teachers are qualified, approachable and kind. The district is constantly reviewing their approach to curriculum and looking for ways to improve. Wenatchee is successfully integrating students from a wide range of social-economic backgrounds and creating a sense of family within the classroom. Newbery students may have a higher opportunity for after-school enrichment due to their great PTSA. Our family has been very pleased with the quality of instruction and overall tone of the school.

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.
