The teachers are great! My daughter loved going to school every day, mainly because she loved her teacher (Mrs. Lovelace)

Staff are always friendly and care tremendously about the children. The productions and events assisted by the PTA are encouraging and play an important roll in the lives of the students.

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.
