The school has great kindergarten, first grade and second grade teachers. The upper grades especially 6th grade is awful the teachers don't know how to deal with kids. Also the principal has lost control of all of her teachers and is unable to fix any problems. The school needs a strong principal that can bring back a good working environment so that the children won't suffer. If the entire school were like in the kindergarten, first and second grade teachers I would give it 5 stars.

The leadership is absent here, such a sad change from several years ago. The loss of the school counselor was the last straw.

As long as the parental involvement in this school remains strong and the strongest teachers remain, this school will do fine educating students. Unfortunately, everyone is stretched so thin that when there are any challenges and even opportunities at the school it can be very difficult to address them or take advantage of them.

Imlay has awesome teachers that really go the extra mile for the kids. We miss the old principal though as the new one is not very empathetic to young impressionable children .

Imaly is a great school. I have a son in kindergarten this year. I am impressed with the teaching methods my son's teacher is using. When I compare what my son does in this school with his friend in private school, I find he is doing more. I am not a big advocate for homework at his age but I find the reading assignment and homework my son gets have helped him with his reading and math. The assignments are not hard but enough to help practise what he has learned that week. I am vey confident my son is ready for first grade next year.

This is a great school. Lots of parent helpers are everywhere and the school is full of student's work. I still don't understand why the special ed kids have a teacher to student ratio of one on one and the regular classes have 30 kids and one teacher. Maybe that is what's wrong with our budget.

Imlay is a great school and community. There is definately a strong tie with the parents involved. Mrs. D makes every child feel special and interacts with the children and parent and teachers. She is a great principal.

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.
