Riverside is one of the best schools in Grants Pass. I went for six years from 1988 to 1994, and now I am proud to have both my children in Riverside. They have been attending from 2005 to present.

My two sons and now my 2 grandsons attend Riverside and our experience has always been outstanding. The teachers are caring and involved which is so criticial during these developing years. Teachers and staff have always been extremely supportive and help the children develop skills to handle many challenges that will come along in life. Nothing buy praise for Riverside and Staff

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.
