Central Linn Elementary School is a smaller school on a very small town (Halsey). There are two teachers for every class (K-6) most are very nice. The kids get along very well with them....until they get older and more stubborn,because the teachers that teach older kids don't really mess around with foolishness.We've had some problems with the other employees (duties) and music teachers because they don't care about the students as much as the teachers so they get the students in trouble more often.But the little kids have lots of fun.There is a playground on sight where they have people outside watching the students for safety.There is a P.E teacher and a music teacher (music teachers usually come and go) There's a main office in the front of the building and classes all through out the school with a library in the middle of them. it's not the best school in the world but it's a school!

I let my child go here for one year before moving him elsewhere. School has ok teachers but poor administrators that show favoritism and have unbalanced discipline standards. People who care about education don't send their kids here.

There's just an odd vibe at this school. I think most of the staff are doing a decent job. I find the fifth grade teacher Mrs. Epperson (now Mrs. Geyer, or so I hear) to be completely unapproachable. A very cold person. When you do try to talk to her she behaves as though she's much more intelligent than others and isn't interested in others opinions. When I come across people like this I often suspect that they're of lower than average intelligence, and in this case it's really apparent. I've heard her say some things that are totally illogical, as though she has an easy time convincing herself that everything she does is correct. Walking ego trip, that one.

Central Linn Elementary School has great teachers and administration! They are small town with big flair. Parents are encouraged to be involved and they volunteer frequently. I am impressed with this elementary school (although they are not as academically advanced as schools in Utah), but the junior high school has problems.

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.
