We love all the teachers and staff at this school. My daughter came from the Philippines two years ago, and was quite nervous at first, but her teacher Mrs. Geier helped her adjust. And now she is excelling in school and she loves it!!! The teachers are passionate about teaching and the school staff really cares about the kids. My hats off to everyone, especially Mrs. Geier and Mrs. Stepan (her 4th and 5th grade teachers)

This school has some real safety issues for the students that attend. Also,their teaching styles are different than other schools, even in the same area. If your child doesn't learn by the new styles that which they are taught they are left behind. With no concerns from the staff.

I did go to this school 4 yrs ago.. I am a sophmore now, And I think that this is one of the best elementary school ever. You have so much freedom that other schools will not allow, don't have second thoughts see for yourself

I would not reccomend anyone moving to this area for this school. Elmonica is extremly liberal. By liberal I mean that kids are not given the typical elementary school experience. They are made to believe that fairies float aroung the school, and are not allowed to collect acorns on the playground because of environmental reasons. Overall I think that this is the worst school that my children have ever attended.

I can't say enough about this school. I've got 4 years of knowledge in this school, and it is great. My boys love it there. The teachers are amazing, and the Principal is exceptional! They even offer 'enrichment classes' for students to take before or after school to learn new, fun, skills & hobbies. There is also a large PTO, that is very involved with the school. You really can't go wrong sending your children to Elmonica!

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.
