Juniper Elementary is the most amazing school a parent could ask for!! When I drop my children off there in the morning I am at ease and my heart is happy knowing that they are going to have a wonderful, educationally fun filled day! Kids are kind to eachother and watch out for oneanother, no "cliques" and bullying is not tolerated! The staff are genuinely concerned for the children and treat them with respect. Each child is an individual and are treated accordingly. I just can not say enough about this school - it is truly a blessing to our family! Our community will continue to thrive and be awesome because of the way these children are molded at Juniper!

So far kindergarten had me say, "WOW," every day. My daughter learned to read, can tell you about sentences (capital letters, commas, periods, quotation marks, question marks, exclamation points), she started learning math (addition, subtraction) and lots of exploration (the solar system, creepy critters, and nocturnal animals). She loved every day and it was taught using all learning methods, so it all stuck! She made a claymation movie. Learned about scripts, characters and settings as well as the film making aspects. I love this school.

Dont let the rating of 4 discourage you, the teachers and staff are wonderful here. My daughter has excelled since we moved here from Medford, OR where we had her in private 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.
