Open Quote We've had our son at this school for four years. The school operates using a "Love and Logic" approach. This means they give the child a task, support the child, will guide them to make wise decisions, but ultimately allow them to make their own choices (and possibly fail). They focus on allowing for a strong parent/child/teacher relationship by not giving homework in lower grades and slowly adding it. This allows the child to enjoy learning vs being programmed to do worksheets. It also lets parents (especially new ones) get used to teaching and helping their kids without it becoming a fight.

The teachers have all been supportive and available by email or in person. They get to know the children and its clear that they do this because they want to. That makes the school a welcome place for learning.

If there was thing to improve, the front office can be a little rough which can lead to a poor first impression, but they are helpful and just trying to work through a large workload as quickly as possible. Close Quote

Open Quote Staff unsupportive to students.
Extremely poor at resolving bullying issues, allowing them to run rampant, with little discipline. More likely to punish your child as a victim than the culprits. Staff take part in behavior damaging to young children, such as making fun of how they laugh. They join in with students in taunting other students, perpetuating and reinforcing bad behavior.

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.
