Posted February 25, 2008

I am a senior at this school and throughout the entire four years of my being her it has seemed that this school is inadequite. I've been to several schools, and this one is by far the worst. The teachers think they can run the classroom and the hallways with an iron fist, and yet they don't do anything. The students are bad mannered, start fights, have low test scores, and have no respect for the general public. Several students here are undereducated, get pregnant, skip classes to do drugs, and many of them even drop out before the end. It really is unfortunate, but I consider myself one of the lucky ones who actually has an acedemic mindset enough to where I have been able to continue through my high school career with the end goal of graduation in mind.

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.
