My son's teacher, Elaine Butler is amazing. She is always available and helps in so many ways. The school has been fabulous for him and we are so thankful to Mrs. Butler! Words can't express. ..

I'm an eighth grader at EJHS now, and in my two years, the school has been on the local news twice for freak incidents. Both were troubling for every student, but I never thought it was an unsafe place to be. Mrs. Rhue is our principal now and she's always done a good job of keeping my school a safe and fun place to be- even if she's not popular among every social group. She expects work, work that comes in better and better every test season. The environment at EJHS is laid back without being lazy and very strict as far as rules go. I'm proud to be a homegrown Estacadian who went to Estacada schools :)

This school is azmazing! I am not looking forward to moving next year. I love how at the beginning of each day, we get to catch up on homework, and get help when we need it. If you're a 7th or 8th grader, you need to go here!

I am a 7th grade student at Estacada Jr. High. The teachers here are outstanding, and are always willing to help. Our principal Mr. Olds is so cool. We have a half an hour at the end of a regular shool day to do homework and go to other classes to get extra help. We get the choice of band and/or choir and one elective {we don't get to choose that class} or no band or choir and two electives. If your studend is harassed we have very, very stric harrassment policies and are working towards the 4Rs. RESPECT, RESPONSIBLITY, RELATIONSHIPS, and RISK-TAKING. Come to this school! Our year is devided up into three terms and we have parent teacher confrences half way through each one. Please consider coming to my 3A 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.
