This school is great! The teachers are awesome, and it's very strict, but it's a great place to learn. The teachers have great methods of teaching, and in general it's a good place. The school is old, yes, I will admit that, and we don't have our own cafeteria, but I truly think our school district deserves more money, 'cause these teachers are great. If you haven't enrolled your child, I'd do it today. It may be the chance of a lifetime.

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.
