This school is horrible do not let your kids go here. The teacher and staff are very narrow minded and a lot of the students are stuck up This school is very low on funds and don't have much of anything. The staff has favorite kids and the rest of the kids might as well disappear. This school is the worst.

This school was good 10 years ago, not so much now. The "good-ol boy club" is stupid. The teachers and principle don't care about education and care more about having fun on the weekend or winning in sports.

I attended this school, and it was very fun. I loved the athletic programs and the fine arts programs. There were some members of the staff who I grew very close with, and some who I didn't care much for. That is the life of the high school student, though. Overall, I thought it was a good school for acedemics, if you sign up for the right classes. However, the counselors aren't as much counselors as they are schedule planners. I got minimal support with the 'prepare for college' scene. There wasn't much they cared to do for me. The teachers were much better.

If your child is into sports and you like the 'good old boys'attitude then this is the school for you. If your child is not into sports, and you want academics, go else where for challenges in academics. It seems that the less the teachers can do the happier they are here. Not impressed with the backbone of administration nor the depth of understanding and willingness to help get anything done from the counselor. Go else where for your education.

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.
