My daughter went to this school for two years and the first year I really enjoyed their program. However, the second year we had difficulties with her teacher and the principal failed to do anything about it. He will not listen to women's input, even if it is in the best interest of their child.

I have to say I was not impressed by the school in general. During our year there my daughter was not challenged well and in the three parent teacher conferences we had that year not one of the teachers she had that year was able to give me any real feedback on her progress. I feel that my daughter's education suffered the year she attended school in this district. I attempted to join the pto to be a more active parent but they seemed to only want input if it agreed with what they already did or wanted to do! K. Hicks

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.
