HRMS is a wonderful school. The teachers are very encouraging to students, and support each student's talents, in whatever area they may be. There are many great electives, such as Climbing Wall, Making a Difference, and Mindbenders. There are 3 foreign language programs, and WEB and Conflict Manager programs. The music programs include Choir, Beginning and Advanced Band, Jazz Band, and Guitar. Our sports include Cross Country, Track, Football, Volleyball, Basketball, and Wrestling. There are so many opportunities for students to follow their dreams, and do what they like best. It has been a wonderful school for me, and I'll be sad to leave it behind when I leave Middle school next year. -An HRMS student who greatly admires my teachers and school.

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.
