This is a welcoming and warm school with excellent teachers. However this year the teacher-student ration is around 1-37. Not good.

The school has been very welcoming to us as this is our first year. The PTA Is very active as are parent volunteers. The library is fabulous. The principal is very involved and relates well with parents and children alike. I appreciate that they compost and foster an environmentally aware facility and staff. I think it is a nice blend of grassroots and green while also being crisp and structured.

Fabulous neighborhood school that provides opportunities to learn about sustainable living practices. Huge grant for solar panels, a School Garden Project and many years of composting! Situated so that most students are able to walk/bike to school. A racism-free zone.

Adams is a remarkable neighborhood school which is able to meet the educational needs of a wide variety of students. Children are recognized for their strengths and are given tools to succeed socially and academically.

Adams is what all schools in Eugene strive to be. Adams is diverse socio-economically and culturally. Adams consistently scores among the highest in the district in Math, Reading and Writing. My son loves school, students are kind to each other and proud of their 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.
