The 2011-2012 School year has been going great for my daughter. After attending a private school for pre-school I was uncertain I even wanted to try a public school. My daughter is in Kindergarten & loves her teacher (Mrs.Allen). The class size is larger than I would have liked but it seems like the teacher handles it just fine. I appreciate the friendly staff particularly the helpers at recess time for befriending my daughter who can be quite shy. The PTA seems to have several fun activities planned for the year & seems quite organized. As in any school I have noticed in class there are kids that act out. Although I hate that it takes away from the learning process of the students who are staying on track, quite frankly what can you do. Not all kids have parents that pour into their kids like they should. Overall, great school!

The school makes every effort to maintiain a quality academic program, however in the 'extra' area, it slips. The school has dropped the Math Olympics, OD, Future City, and has in its place a Literature only based gifted program. There is a Fine Art teacher hired, but meeting once a week does not impact the arts. Music (choir) is back finally, but Band has dropped to only 6th grade. Parents are in the classroom and library and office, yet it still seems like a cold place. Is it because the grades will be changing, or has the school lost its focus. Looking at what was offered, I, unfortunately, think it has.

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.
