This year my son is in the first grade. Last year he was in Mrs. Gorgons kindergarten. This year he is being taught by Mrs. Wilson. Let me tell you...This school has the best teachers. They all care, and want the best for your child. My son David actually likes to go school. That's alot more then I can say about my school days! I wish I went to Oakdale!

This is my child's second year, transferring from Salem/Keizer district. We have seen a postive result. My child feels secure and his learning is excelling. My regret is that we did not move from Salem before this. With 5 children, all grown but one, I state clearly. Oakdale is the best school around. Thank you Oakdale. The Herreras

This school has a wonderful atmosphere and high values. Issues with students are taken seriously and promptly. Staff are genuinely concerned about the students growth in all facets. It's a great place to be!

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.
