I have had all 4 of my children go to Oak Grove. We have never had any serious issues while they were there outside of the normal. The teachers have always been caring and interested in each student as an individual. We have been very satisfied with the educational output of out children provided by the staff.

i give this school 5 out of 5 for it's helpful staff and teachers. my granddaughter just started this school year and likes her teacher, that's a real plus. i am the grandparent of a 4th grader. i also like the fact that the principal greats the children as they arrive to school.

I give Oak Grove a 3 out of a 5 star rating because I believe the teachers are wonderful, I would have given it a 2 otherwise. I was not pleased with certain policies and supervision of students. We are moving so that we can place our daughter in a better school.

Caring teachers give our kids an excellent education. Parents are involved. Staff makes a point of staying very positive and focused on learning. Four of our kids have attended this school and now have excellent academic skills.

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.
