I was in the 2nd grade in 1962 at Groner, it appears it is still a great school, as it was 51 years ago. It hasn't changed much in that time, except getting better! Short and sweet, Groner should be the standard by which others are measured.

Great little school!!! Adult to student ratio is very high, the kids get lots of individual attention and are encouraged to work at their own level. Great parent involvement, wonderful teachers, terrific programs... my kids love this school!

Groner is a small public elementary school in a great agricultural community with a lot of history. It is the program school for the area's deaf and hard of hearing students. In addition, all students at Groner learn ASL, so by 6th grade all students are considered proficient in a second language. The school has a wonderful, caring and committed teaching staff and administrative staff, and students have a great deal of support while getting a great education! Groner's many community building and family events provide several ways for students and families to build relationships and friendships. The school's dedication to building community makes Groner 'the village' it takes to raise all of our children well.

There is nothing like the atmosphere of a small school. The teachers and staff are great, we all know each other well. The communitiy is very involved and our kids are terrific. Deaf and hard of hearing children are mainstreamed into the classroom, sign language is used throughout. Feel lucky if you wind up in this district, its great.

This is a very friendly small country school. The kids all know each other. They all learn spanish and sign language, so the kids all play together and aren't excluded because they are deaf or spanish. It has a great deaf and hard of hearing program.

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.
