I had a child who went to this school for 7th grade in the 2011/2012 school year, and she loved it, she likes Gervais Middle way better than the school she attended for 8th grade. She loved all of her teachers and says that they pushed the students to their best, and that a lot of schools don't do that.

We are very unhappy with this school, there are many problems with it teachers, office staff, and students. We would highly suggest if you have any other options you send your child to another school outside the district. Their grades went from honor students to failing. Our goal for next year is to pull our children out of this district, we have never had the problems that we have had at this school, Brooks Elementry and Gervais High are not as bad as the middle school. My kids have gone from loving school to not even wanting to be there because of the treatment they receive at this school. I have one child in the high school and when my child told his teacher he needed help with his math, her response was I am not wasting my time on you. Please do your child a favor and consider another 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.
