Open Quote We moved from Canada last summer. Before the move, we've done extensive research on schools in both Kirkland and Redmond, and have decided that Rockwell was the best school for our 6 year old son. The decision was based on the fact that the school's test scores are satisfactory, least amount of students with assisted lunches etc.

The progress our son has shown in both reading and writing is just fantastic, especially because it had been a struggle up until now (his ability was well below average, even considering his age). He seems to have 'clicked' and started spelling difficult words with least difficulty. Thanks to his teacher (mostly for her patience!)

Rockwell also provides bus services, which provides tremendous help in the parents' every day schedule.

Needless to say, we LOVE this school. We are looking to buy a home right now, and have decided not to buy any home that is outside the school's boundary. 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.
