Profile Completeness


Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

We all need help to have motivation. Help these kids!!! We need much more people who inspire these kids!!! I love the area, much more mellow. MLK Junior Elementary needs donations. Without arts and crafts how can these kids minds be creative? Field trips are very nice. To take trips to: Fort Simco, Yakima Valley Museum, Bolder Cave, Franklin Park, Plays at Davis and IKE, even to the Space Needle etc. A great experience for these kids, especially if they don't get this opportunity at home. Planting at the school, get some color in there. Decorations to show school spirit.
