It is a small town School with so much to offer. Cross country sking, community garden, and great teachers.

My experience with Methow Valley Elementary has been a wonderful one. They encourage small class sizes and parent participation. They have many levels of programs for kids with all types of learning abilities. They have a super 'math is cool' group and their music and art programs have been outstanding. They have a great reading program that I have personally seen help many children learn to be fluent readers and make them want to read. The teachers and principal are easy to work with along with the office help. They are always striving to bring new and improved programs into the school for the children and on any given day you will see parents in the halls and class rooms helping out. They also have a mentor program that has been enjoyed by many children. My kids and I will miss this 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.
