Open Quote Most of the teachers at this school are lovely...although having said that we did have a pretty bad year last year with one teacher who managed to make my quite bright 8 year-old have very low self-confidence in many schooling areas. Luckily already 3 weeks into the following school year his new teacher has helped hugely and he's nearly back to his old self.

One thing I've noticed, though, is that the support for very bright (but not gifted) children isn't great at this school. My older son "just missed out" on the gifted program, but consistently scores 98th-99th percentile on his reading and math star tests. The teachers seem to be bound to follow the general curriculum with all children in their class rather than extending children who already understand a particular unit of study. This leads to a fair bit of boredom. I say it's not great "at this school" because at another school in the same district, we had a brilliant teacher who moved my younger son into math topics for the year above around half-way through the year, thereby keeping him challenged and learning.

Open Quote This is an amazing school. The ambiance, the Pricipal, the teachers, support staff are all superb. The curriculum is great, and the kids get excellent education here.
My daughter can't wait for Monday every weekend. I can't think of a single negative remark to say about this school. Close Quote

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.
