Open Quote The first year this school opened was amazing. Teachers were excited and engaged. Children were excelling well beyond their grade level. Now children are running wild while teachers spend the day trying to gain control over classes. Then they tell you how wonderful your child is and how exceptionally well they are doing. This is not the case children are not at grade level. Today I sat through a kindergarten graduation where they teachers proudly reported all children are reading and doing well in math. Many parents started to make comments to the contrary about how there respective children were not reading or doing math. I have met with the newest principal who gives a good talk about her plans for the future and I believe she has the skill set the school needs to move forward. Unfortunately teachers who blatantly lie about the success of children in order to look good is not in my child’s best interest and she will now be redoing kindergarten at a different school.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.

About Immunization Rates:
Kindergarten Immunization Rates: This graph shows the percent of students in the school who have all of the required doses for the vaccine type for kindergarten entry (complete). The following vaccines are required for Washington State kindergarten entry: DTaP (Diphtheria, Tetanus and Pertussis), Hep B (Hepatitis B), MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella), Polio and Varicella (chickenpox). The data comes from schools reporting to the Department each school year. Schools report total counts of students based on each student’s Certificate of Immunization Status, which is parent-reported and is not health care provider verified. The goal line is the national Health People 2020 target of 95% completion for these vaccines for school age children.
Protected Students: The number and percent of students in the school reported to have all required vaccinations for their age and grade.
Students with plan: The number and percent of students in the school with a temporary approved plan for getting caught-up on required vaccinations. These students can remain in school if they follow this plan.
Students with exemption: The number and percent of students in the school reported to have any exemption type for at least one vaccine.
Unknown: The number and percent of students whose immunization status is not known. These students do not fall into any other category – they may be missing required vaccines, but have no temporary delay plan or exemptions. Students with no signed CIS on file are also counted here.
