I LOVED this school. My son attended Fairview for Kindergarten and his teacher was WONDERFUL. There was plenty of Teacher/Parent communication with us, and I loved that the kindergarten class got to participate in all of the assemblies and fundraising! class size was about 15:1 which is better than Salish Ponds where we are now which is about 30:1. If I could have my son come back to Fairview, I would. I attended this school from kindergarten through 5th grade and I am now Pre-Medicine at Portland State University. The teachers were amazing when I attended as well.

this school is over crowded, 30+ students per teacher. Some grade classes rotate teachers so kids have 2 or 3 different teachers a day. There's no music, no field trips (other than omsi once a year) there's always fundraisers going on however its never to help the school (which i believe is where our money should be going) The communication with the parents isn't where it should be either. I was never even contacted the beginning of the year telling me the first day, where i can find out who my daughters teacher was etc. Then 3 months into school year i get a letter saying they lost all her registration paper-work. This school needs funding, they're overloaded. Well over 800 kids

I LOVED this school; I attended there 2nd-5th grades, in the mid-late '90's, and I am now a freshman at UC Berkeley. It is where I started orchestra (viola) which I have continued to this day. For me, the best thing about Fairview was its diversity; unlike a lot of 'diverse' schools, at Fairview kids of all races actually hung out together without seeing race as an issue. The teachers were WONDERFUL, and if I got bored in class, they gave me advanced work; this helped me to get ahead. Fairview may not be the richest school or have the best test scores, but it really helped me to develop into a good person, with respect for others as well as for the earth; they recycle! While there, I was a library assistant, played in the orchestra, and helped out in the ESL classroom. I loved it!

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.
