Both of my sons went to this school and it was great! The teachers and staff are very caring. The after school enrichment academy is awesome. My younger son had a great experience with the Lego Robotics team.

This school was pretty awesome. I'm a former student and I enjoyed most of my time at Whiteaker. The music programs are phenomenal and the sports are pretty good too. The teachers knew what they were doing (for the most part) and I always felt safe. I learned quite a bit here and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good middle school. My younger brother also went here and it seemed to be about the same as when I was there so I would assume everything still applies. The only thing is, there seems to be quite a few bullies there so just a caution. But yeah, overall a great 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.
