Open Quote My Family and I love this school! My daughter has made tremendous improvements just from transferring across town. her test scores have jumped in all subjects, the teachers and staff all know very well how to connect with the students so they may learn very easily. The community is very involved and the school has many after school and evening events to share education and fun with the families and include the surrounding members. All the staff members know all the students by name and know them well enough to know who they are, where they should be and who or how they get home.I feel my daughter is very safe an well taken care of at this school. I am very sad to have moved out of state and leave this great family of a school. Close Quote

Open Quote School is newer and large, teachers are awesome and have small class sizes, PTO and community are very involved. The area the school is located in is close to town, but safely tucked away in a great area. The school is especially receptive to every single students specific needs. No complaints whatsoever. This from a parent of a girl with an extreme peanut allergy, which is very difficult to deal with on a large scale. Every person in this school was very understanding and accommodating in helping keep my daughter safe at school. THIS SCHOOL IS 100% PEANUT FREE! 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.
