The administrator of this school is inept, pretends like she knows what she's doing, doesn't hold any of the students accountable for bad behavior, poor attendance, and bad grades. A student can get all "F"s and still go on to high school. When they get to high school, they flunk and have to go to the alternative school. There is no support for many of the teachers. There are many highly qualified, caring, and wonderful teachers in this school. But alas, they have no support from their administrator who only wants to do things her way. She has been here three years and the quality of education, sadly, has gone down the tubes because she doesn't allow her teachers to do what they were hired to do - that is teach. She has changed the curriculum standards each of the years she's been there and so far, nothing she's done works. An Administrator is the leader of the school and if you have poor leadership you will have a poor school! This school was so much better with the previous principals. The school has really gone down since my child attended there two years ago.

This school is OK, it is the only middle school in town but it is OK. A few vandalism and stupidity problems.

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.
