After my daughters first year, I would have to say I am very happy with what I have seen at Lewis and Clark. The Teachers and staff are focused on the students well being. The facilities are clean and organized.

Lewis and Clark Middle school is an excellent middle school. They have great teachers that are willing to help students succeed in school. They have an active PTSA and lots of emphsis on the Student and teacher part. The student ASB is also very active and have joined forces with the PTSA. I can't say enough about this school.

I think that the special education department is doing an awesome job my daugher is in the sixth grade with Mr. Franz and he is one of the best teachers that she has had.

Lewis and clarks overall quality of academic progams are very interesting and good for the students education. The avaiblity of music, art, sports, and extacurricular activities are great for the student minds to relax before or after normal classes. The level of parent involvement is somewhat high but the students arent doing anything to help the parents of the PTA with any problems.

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.
