Posted September 7, 2008

I've graduated three children from Humbolt. All three children enjoyed their time there, and the bumps and bruises of education were addressed appropriately. Having worked with the staff/administration within the district, I can say they provide enthusiasm, a positive environment, and staff support to one another. Special needs are quickly assessed, and adaptations are made to benefit the child, which nurtures family, student, and staff communication. This smaller community works, plays, and learns together. It takes a village to raise a child....

Humbolt Elementary was a great school for my daughter, Victoria. Everybody was very personal. They took the time to get to know my child and and her special needs. Developing a great plan for her best benefit. I loved everybody at Humbolt Elementary and was very disappointed to have to leave their wonderful caring environment.

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.
