Parent involvement is very high, academic programs while modest are very thorough and there are the basic extra-cirricular activities available for a school of this size. My kids love it there.

My son is currently in 8th grade, and my daughter is in 6th grade at Amity Middle School. I moved to Amity 3 1/2 years ago from a larger district to ensure my children completed their education in a small, nurturing environment, with excellent teachers who held them to high academic standards. I have been extremely pleased with their academic, and social/emotional progress. Beginning with their time at Amity Elementary, they have attended a small school, with small class sizes. They were encouraged and supported because teachers are able to develop relationships with each student. Small class size, small schools, and a commitment to high standards has resulted in a relevant, rigorous, yet very caring and personal experience for my children. Another wonderful aspect of Amity School District is the area of athletics, where all students have the opportunity to participate. On a scale of 1-10, I give Amity a '10+'.

I feel that the change in principals was very hard on students. The current principle didn't make an easy transistion and was inconsistent with punishments. Nearly all of the 8th grade students had a Legitimate grudge agaisnt the principle or his pratices. No matter what compromises people were willing to make it always ended his way. Althiugh teaching countinued to be great, I can't wait to be in high school!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Oregon used the Oregon Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (OAKS) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in reading and math; in grade 11 in writing; and in grades 5, 8 and 11 in science. The OAKS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Oregon. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
