This is my son's first year here and he is on fifth grade. On the first meeting I openly talked about bullying and they take care of the situation with safety. The school offers high level classes and gives opportunities to advanced students as well as to students that need help. There is a wonderful balance on ethnic diversity. The Principal is kind and a brilliant school manager. The teacher was patient and excellent class manager too. I was always informed about my son.

I think this is a great school . I so disagree with the 3/18 comment. My children are doing well and meet or exceed the benchmarks. I have never felt that I couldn't participate in my children's education. The teachers, principal and staff are very warm and caring.

This school is lacking the basic knowledge on how to educate children. The school does not understand what it means to have parents involved with the education process. If you do not care about your children and want the school to take care of them, then this would be the school for you.

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.
