Three Thurston County schools landed on the state’s list of under-performing schools and will receive additional funding and support to try to make improvements, according to the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction.

Rainier Elementary School was listed as “priority” because of its reading and math test scores during the past three years.

Tenino Middle School and Yelm Middle School were listed as “focus” schools because they fell below the state’s bar for reading and math scores by the subgroup of students receiving special education services.
