all teaches care and support facilities are great
—Submitted by a parent


Posted April 24, 2007

I'm sorry to say that I found this school unsatisfactory while my daughter attended 2nd and 3rd grades here. She has now attended three different elementary schools, and Mountainview was by far the lowest quality education we experienced. The math program is particularly lacking. There were several friendly and caring staff members, and some very rude staff members as well, but the largest impact was felt with the lack of quality teaching she experienced. She enjoyed her time here, and it has a nice rural-school feel, but she continues to struggle academically to make up for those years at Mountainview when her education was substandard.

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.
