I don't know about you, but when I went to middle school, it was so depressing! I couldn't wait to get out of there. In contrast, this school has a supportive hopeful feel to it. Can't explain it other than the leaders and majority of the teachers are caring and helpful and fun. The kids who come in needing help catch up to the more affluent schools by the time they leave. That's saying something. Good job Wy'east! Shout out to Ms. Hoikka, Keimig, Olson, Hart, Mr. Sacquety, Mr. McFadden, Mrs. Dalbey and Mrs. Cooper.

Wy'east Middle School is clearly a great school. My sister used to go to Wy'east, but is now in High School. My sister completed her 6th, 7th, and 8th grade years with 4.0 grade averages. The teachers are very understanding, the students have great conduct and the school over all has many great extra curricular activities. If i had the choice to go to high school her I would!

The teachers are amazing there and love to help the students like me. All of them really are the best teachers. I think this school is better than the rest.

I have two daughters going to Wyeast. We have been extremely happy. The teachers are dedicated. They are challenged academically. The learning has been made interesting. The students are acting more age appropriately at this school. They are under less peer pressure to act older than they are. This has been a great experience for both of my daughters.

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.
