Three Snoqualmie Valley Schools earn top state achievement award

The Snoqualmie Valley School District announced this week that three of its schools were named among the State’s highest performing schools, earning each a 2016 Washington Achievement Award from the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) and the State Board of Education.

Earning the prestigious honor this year were Fall City Elementary School, North Bend Elementary School, and Opstad Elementary School – putting them among 280 schools recognized for achieving at the highest levels and making significant growth.

The following recognition were earned:

  • Fall City Elementary School — High Progress, English Language Arts Growth
  • North Bend Elementary School — Achievement Gap (Students with Disabilities)
  • Opstad Elementary School — Achievement Gap (Hispanic Students)

Washington Achievement Award winners are selected using the Washington State Achievement Index which is based on statewide assessment data for the three previous years. Awards are given in seven categories: Overall Excellence, High Progress, English Language Arts Growth, Math Growth, Extended Graduation Rate, English Language Acquisition and Achievement Gap.

Per the district announcement from Superintendent Aune:

“I’d like to congratulate the students and staff at Fall City Elementary, North Bend Elementary, and Opstad Elementary School for earning this special recognition. The staff in each of these schools have been working very hard to develop programming, build systems, and deliver instruction which inspires learning and growth in all students. Consequently, achievement levels in these schools continue to trend upward. Our aim is to bring out the best in each and every student. These three schools are exemplars in that regard.”

The winning schools will be guests of honor at a ceremony on May 3, 2017, at Olympic Middle School in Auburn, Washington.

Congrats FCE, NBE and OES!!
