The teachers are fantastic, creative and skilled! The Principal is actively involved and has helped create a caring, supportive community of learners. They opened their hearts and their doors when two other schools in the district were over-crowded. We feel lucky to call Summitview our home school.

This school is great because although it is outdated the staff creates a wonderful environment. I was a student at Summitview elementary and it was a great experience.

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.
