Parents need to be encourage to come in more than the twice yearly conferences. Parents, school board members and other guests were always accompanied by administrators during classroom sessions. It always felt like the administrators were watching to see we didn't share any personal views other than life in rose colored glasses. Again, I am hopeful for the district to recover from an employment nightmare. The superintendent, business manager, and two principals have changed. Only the Director of Special Education and Elementary Principal remains. The SPED director is now the acting superintendent. I don't know him, but I hope he understands why major changes are needed. An oppressive environment makes a poor educational atmosphere. The kids are good kids as a whole. Pacific Bridges, the alternative school, had a high success rate but is limited by being from small place to a smaller place which restricted numbers. Rules and operation were taken from the teacher who started it and micro-managed by the now former Principal. Hope for the new administration is high. I have heard good things about the new Principals. I give the school three stars based on hope of a positive setting.

Since my child has attended this school, they have changed the grading system three times. Now they have credit by proficiency, which in my opinion, only teaches students to pass tests. The students don't learn from this. It is a big disservice to the students. Furthermore, this school does not prepare them for college. It also has a tracking systems - athletics vs. non-athletics. Athletes are given preferential treatment and allowed to miss lots more classes than non athletes and take more challenging courses. Their math and english departments are lacking good teachers. The principal, however, is actually trying to raise standards in the school but if Administration does not support him it is all for naught. I'm not impressed with this school at all. It is geared primarily for athletics not academics. My children have basically lost interest in school since they've been there.

With all the budget cuts, there is limited things for us to do. Some of the teachers here do not do their job properly and do not challenge us enough. Plus, the choises of classes we are given are very limited and many classes are cut each year. I, personaly can't wait to go to college to get out of here.

School is way underfunded, lack of teachers and more budget days off. All three schools get out early on wednesdays

As a volunteer in the ASPIRE Program I witness the professional dedication of staff and administrators. My career was in education and I see so many good things. The students like and respect their teachers. I see team work among the staff, support staff and administrators. Thank you for the opportunity to be part of the effort to educate our youth and to encourage them to seek additional education and training after high school.

Students are not fully prepared for college classes. Internal issues with administrators, teachers and staff affect the entire 'climate' of the school. Not enough parent involvement at any level either academics or athletics. Just a handful of parents are involved.

Being new to this school district, I have found school to parent communication is limited and must be sought out by the parent. Parent and community involvement appears limited at the academic level, but seems strong in the athletics.

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.
