This is the worst school in the state in my opinion. Teachers and staff look down on parents and bully students. Cottage Grove/south lane school district is horrible at arbitration between parents and teachers also...the parents and students are always two wrong! The only teacher that is descent at that school or within the entire district is Richard DeGeorge and he teaches special ed. He is a great guy!! Who really cares! The rest aren't worth the communities time. Homeschool your children, before you send them to Lincoln...or any other school in the district!!

This school is awful. Kids are bullied and the teachers constantly pick favorites. Some teachers even bully the students.

My child was verbally attacked by a teacher, the 504 that had been in effect was ignored and I have been treated like I'm the problem. NEED I SAY MORE?

I dont like this school at all. They don't treat parents with much respect and kids are bullied by teachers as well as other kids.

Not a good school. Teachers are bullies, and the parents are always wrong when they talk to any teachers or other staff, and parents are constantly talked down to by most staff!! Rules change w/o parents knowing. My advice: "Home school your children before putting them in this school"

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.
