Not only is this school failing in the state standards the principal is failing all students that are not in band or athletic programs he is a individual that pats you on the back telling you he will work with you one minute and then turning around and doing everything possible to not help your child out of a constant bulling situation. There are a few good teachers in this school to bad they are ruining their reputations being associated with the entire Jefferson school system . I have also found out with transferring my student to a new school that Jefferson is an entire grade behind in their teachings. Personally I would tell any parent that moves to Jefferson that they would be better off driving their student to Scio or Turner to ensure that their child gets a better then below average education.

JMS is a great place to work! It's the kind of place where students don't want to miss a day. I would not hesitate to send my own child here, but unfortunately we don't live in the district.

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.
