Gilbert Elementary is a good school that with a little parental involvement and ongoing commitment from administration could be a great school. There are a lot of children who are ESL and a fairly high absenteeism rate which is very challenging for teachers.

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.
