Open Quote Our children have been students at Sacajawea Elementary for 4 years now, and we LOVE the school. My children are considered Advanced Learners and they are receiving the support that they need academically and are thriving. The school provides so much support for students of all academic and developmental levels, is doing so much equity work, and the school culture and community is very positive and close. As a small school, teachers are able to support all of their students. We are very happy here! Close Quote

Open Quote Our son had a fabulous Kindergarten year here. Staff in his classroom and in the whole school really work to create an expectation of kindness and community among the students. Close Quote

Open Quote Disappointing and frustrating. Close Quote

Open Quote Test scores reflect the average of all scores not the work of individual students. Sacajawea is committed to helping every student thrive and creates support for each individual learner. This kind of dedication and success rarely demonstrates itself in standardized testing which is often flawed or needlessly wordy to impress school boards. However, these tests only confuse students who actually do know the skill being tested. Sacajawea students routinely demonstrate improvement through the school year and move forward at or above grade level learning. Students enjoy school and most look forward to their time at 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.
