Mills Elementary is a wholesome community center that offers a host of educational opportunities to students. Some of the attributes that our family loves about Mills are the extensive music program (all students attend music class, and band, orchestra, and choir are also offered), annual musical theater productions, family math night and school carnival, competitive track & field and basketball, foreign language classes, an emphasis on multiculturalism, after school academic support, wonderful facilities including a 400+ seat auditorium and a full gymnasium in a lovely historic, geothermally heated building, and a staff that care deeply about the education and overall wellbeing of students. The quality and consistency of our children's education at Mills has been exceptional. This is why we have been transferring our children to Mills from outside the neighborhood for six years. There's even a big, new, shiny playground next to a full size soccer field!

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.
