Perfect school with concerned teachers that take the time to listen. I am a firm believer you get what the parent and the student put into it.

Great sports programs for a rural school, including the dance team and the marching band!

Well.. I'm a student there currently.. I am a senior... It's an alright school.. I have slowly come to realize that astoria is my best high school memory.. I am involved in the orchestra prgoram and i am very glad that we have it.. I love how this year we have a shakespeare experience class, it is really the best thing I have taken in high school.. And I think that most of the staff at the high school is wonderful! They are all awesome in their own way... Go class of 2007!!~ woot!

I'm a student there right now. lovely place. could be cleaner, but thats our own fault. Too many broken things, drinking fountains taste like aluminum water. Teachers are really nice, towards the girls anyway. Kinda expensive for public school, so I miss out on a lot. But otherwise, the school isn't TOO bad.

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.
