As a teaching professional fairly new to the field, I couldn't ask for more skilled, dedicated,supportive, caring co-workers than those at Dayton Grade School. From the office staff to the teachers to the other support personel, all are among the most professional and gifted educators I have ever met. Every day they go 'above and beyond' to offer students the best learning opportunities and support as they grow into responsible, productive citizens.It is no wonder that so many staff at Dayton Grade School have worked in this district for many, many years.

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.
