WASL, 2004: Highlights of Success

District Highlights

Our staff has worked incredibly hard during the past few years to learn and implement new teaching strategies to help all students achieve at higher levels. These results are just one set of indicators that shows the hard work of our consistent, long-standing focus on instruction and intense professional development paying off for students.

Enumclaw school district 4th, 7th, and 10th grade students scored at or above the State Uniform Bar, the target set by OSPI, for the percentage of students meeting the standard in all areas at all grade levels tested.
