I am thrilled with the dual language program at Lewis and Clark. As a frequent volunteer I have had the privilege to see some amazing teachers as work. I wonder at the complaints, have these parents spent any time in the classroom? A child who has underling learning disabilities may find the dual language program holds him back.

My child struggled in this school with the dual learning program holding him back. The children are partnered up with another child who speaks the opposite language and they help teach each other. If the other child is slower to learn the pair fails. The staff was mean to their English speaking students. Would not recommend this school if you are looking for a quality education that is not divided by ethnicity.

Lewis & Clark is an impressive educational opportunity for my children. I wish all students in the U.S. could learn this way. (We are one of the only developed nations to teach in only one language.) I am evaluating as a parent who volunteers regularly in the school. Parental involvement is high. The principal is highly involved, passionate about the school, and motivating. The students are excited to learn and happy to be there. Classes are developmentally appropriate. Homework is assigned with a purpose and not excessive. The school participates in both the consequential-based discipline program set by the district and a positive reward for desired behavior program. Teachers work hard, developing active learning situations and regularly evaluating each student. I especially like the community of students -- low income to high income, variety of races, backgrounds, and abilities. Kids learn about other cultures in addition to 2 languages. Other schools may look statistically better, but as a whole these kids are getting a better education than most kids in or nation. Academics are strong.

My child has been in the Dual Language program for 5 years. The format is incredible ~ students learn reading/writing in their native tongue for 2 years before beginning to learn those subjects in their second language. Math is taught in English, while science and social studies are taught in Spanish (the terms are often similar). English-only is available for those who want that for their child. Parent involvement is high and there is a wide variety of activities for the students to get involved in ~ from jump rope club to puppet club to art club to library club to math club to passport club to mariachi to drama. EVERY child can find a place. L&C is one of the FEW locally that does NOT have an action plan because of poor WASL performance. Their scores are consistently high. My problem has been finding an equally high-scoring middle school.

Some staff are overly opionated and judgmental. School's classes are half taught in English and Spanish for nearly every student.

The dual language program is very structured and based on best practices in education. The principal and teachers are highly capable in their specific teaching areas. Parental involvement is highly important to the principal and teachers and a major focus of the school! Parent classes and newsletters are very helpful for parents.

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.
