Shout Out to Cascade View Elementary
13 Jan 2017
We are treating over 150 kids at Cascade View Elementary School in Tukwila over the next couple of weeks. Cascade View has the most diverse student population in the entire country. Families speak over 80 world languages and 64% of students are identified as English Language Learners. Many are refugees and immigrants who also struggle with culture barriers and have never been in a formal education setting before. An astonishing 25% of the students are homeless.
Despite the fact that 90% of its students live in poverty, Cascade View had among the biggest increases in 3rd grade reading and math scores last year. Their English Language Learner (ELL) students outperformed the average of all 3rd graders in the state in math and outperformed other ELL students across the state by over 30% points.
What an amazing school, with truly a superstar staff.
