We started our son at Fir Grove this fall. It has been a great school environment for him so far! After attending a school at highly rated West Linn School District, we are far happier with Fir Grove. This is a caring environment that supports kids at all levels. Above all, he is so happy here. The kids, parents, teachers and staff are friendly and want to make Fir Grove a community!

A great school that has an excellent curriculam, caring teachers and very involved parents. Lots of student enrichment through activities of chess club, science night, open house, class projects, music and sports. Awesome PTO working in partnership with staff makes an environment that encourages the community to be involved. Excellent music program that touches on so many aspects of language, history, math, AND music. Principal really sets a great tone for respectful behavior and the students feel a sense of ownership and strive for postive behaviors and good citizenship.

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.
