I removed my daughter from this school in the third grade and she could not add or subtract. I have since switched to an charter online public school and she is doing much better.

Wonderful education in a tiny rural town next to the ocean. The teachers, councilors and administrators are competent, caring and absolutely dedicated to the education and welfare of the K-5 students.

I have a first grader attending here, she loves the teachers and as a parent I feel she is getting a wonderful education. She is excelling in Reading and Math I am amazed on a daily basis at what she is learning and how excited she is by what she is learning.

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.
