Posted June 10, 2014

I have been very pleased with the principal at this school. She is an avid supporter of students. No matter what side my son has been on I felt as though he was listened to and cared for. The Special Ed teachers are firm, but compassionate. They adamantly defend their students and push for academic equality. Community involvement has provided arts education, Teachers have pushed for technology use and physical education where the budget was lacking. My one wish was that there was more extensive and responsive playground supervision.

I do not like this school at all. The correspondence sent home is always wrong. The Principal calls the students liars and allows teachers to treat students with no respect at all. I have had nothing but problems with this school all stemming from a terrible Principal that is definitely not there for the students. Most of the teachers are very nice and helpful.

My experience with this school has been a positive one. Both of my boys have had some great teachers who have been very caring and dedicated.

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.
