It's very well organized. As a student I was able to communicate easily with teachers and everyone. Whenever I needed help I got it. The students are all helpful and smart + there are volunteers who are parents. I loved this school (:

I liked Linus Pauling. All the students and fuculty were all very helpful and nice. Math Science and lit were all easier 'a's because of how nice the teachers were. Totaly recomend this school because it was built 5 years ago I believe and is bigger than some highschools.

About the tests

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.
