Open Quote Where shall I begin?! The teachers well some starting off with the iep teachers have been nothing but rude and down right disrespectful and do not care about my child's education. Last year I had some other issues with another teacher. And it took weeks to get resolved to the point I had to go to the people above the principal. My child loves to learn yet these teachers just don't give to craps about their education and you wonder why they are ranked at where they are. I am beyond done with this school!!! My child deserves the best education and not the crappiest. How can someone be satisfied with not teaching kids and call it good teaching. And yet here my child is and not progressing at all??? That's what I would love to find out!? Close Quote

Open Quote Southworth has a good staff, and may be doing better with the new principal. District wide it is known for its bullying and disrespect among the children. Sad for such a small town, but having met with the new principal I feel there is more being done to help those who are feeling bullied, not just giving self esteem classes to the bullies themselves. I'm still not sure about the 1-4 grading system that has taken over WA state. It has allowed my student who was graded and placed in the top of his class in reading for the first four years of school, to fall into "needing special assistance." 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.
