My 3 children have been attending Lee elementary since kindergarten. The school has overcame many budget cuts and still manages to overcome those obstacles and provide not only a great curriculum but they find ways to make up for all the losses. No bus service no problem, volunteers rally and walk kids. No music fine, they find instruments and volunteer their time. Now no gym and shorter days, not a problem recess becomes gym and kids who complete tasks are rewarded.The kids are rewarded for all their hard work and in turn work harder. The teachers and staff make the kids a number one priority even when they are not paid to do so. I cant think of a better school and as long as I can my children will stay in that school district because their education comes first and those teachers make it happen no matter what stands in their way. The school spirit is strong and the resilience of the teachers is even stronger.

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.
