My child has had Mr. Stevenson for Kindergarten and Mrs. Lavelle for 1st grade and loved them both. I am very happy with her education and the care the teachers and staff show.

This is the 2nd school my daughter has attended & while the 1st one was highly rated (in the Portland area), she has done much better here. She has been in the 2nd through 5th(now)grade & has had excellent teachers each year. At times she has struggled with her school work but the teacher & principal worked with us to help her get through it. Thanks to Mrs. Ross this year. She is an awesome teacher! KA

I have two daughters that have attended Wilson School. My oldest (now in 8th grade) attended there since kindergarten and her younger sister will be a 5th grader there this year. Our experience with Wilson is positive. All of the teachers my daughters have had are excellent and the principal is involved, attentive, and committed to excellence in education. I have been a room parent in both of my daughters' classrooms every year and from my perspective, Wilson is a great school.

I have 2 girls,1 in 1st grade the other in 2nd. I was very unsatisfied with the principle. There are things on the play ground. 2nd grade kids should not know about kissing and sex and playing kissing games with boys, and the principle did nothing about it. and there budget cuts are a fraud. If they were on such a budget cut why in the world would they send 5 copies of paper on the same topic. 1 good teacher there was Mr. richmond but due to the so called budget cuts he could not apply himself as a good teacher. truly discouraged parent.

The teachers at Wilson are excellent. My daughter has a hearing disability. All of her teachders have made great efforts to accomodate her. The teachers at this school have a sincere caring for their students. I am confident that my child is getting the best education possible at this time. It is unfortunate that there is such an added challenge for these great teachers due to the budget cuts in this state.

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.
