Most of the teachers at Nob Hill do care, and so does the principal. Unfortunately, one Teacher was all it took to move all of our kids into a private school. The system is not set up in a way that keeps the bad teachers out, or even give the parents a real choice. Here's an idea: if you have a particular teacher who is always requested, reward her. And if the other two teachers in that grade consistently have parents requesting a move out of their class, maybe it's time to replace them.

After having my daughter attend a West Valley School a Selah School, I can safely say that Nob Hill Elementary is hands down the best school and represents a superior school district

Nob Hill Elementary is fortunate to have parents who are always willing to volunteer. The PTA deserves much credit for this atmosphere. There is a core of people who constantly give.

Mr. Brownlow is a wonderful principal. His door is always open to parents. He is very hands on in the education of each child.

Nob Hill Elementary is the best school in Yakima. Nob Hill has been a school of distinction for the past two years in a row. Nob Hill has very talented and creative staff. The staff is dedicated to their students. Parent participation is high. The PTSA is very involved at Nob Hill and there isn't a day that goes by that a parent is not at the school volunteering their time.

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.
