Posted April 27, 2003

We have been in this school for 3 years and our daughter has had excellent teachers and wonderful education opportunities! While the school may show as lacking in achievement nationwide, I believe this is due to the high concentration of non-english speaking students. Our daughter has had a great time at this school and I would recommend it to anyone moving to the yakima area.

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.
