I went to this school K-6 grade. It used to be a great school back then. Recently one of my kids went there and we did not have the same good experience I did as a kid. There is poor communication with the parents and they seem to not really care about the kids at times. Several times different kids had situations with bullying where the teachers did not alert the parents of what was happening or help to stop the conflict between the kids.

Very easy to work with the staff of Bilquist. They do care about the children, and after getting rid of the prior principal, Petty, this school is only getting better.

My daughter has had a wonderful experience at this school. The teachers are wonderful. I had a concern and spoke with Mr. Kitchen about it and was very happy with the end result. I'm sorry the other parents had bad experiences. I'm very happy with this school and the safety of my child.

The principal is very careless and doesn't take parent complaints to heart. My daughter is now off to middle school this year and we are thankful to not have to deal with Mr. Kitchen.

I agree with Larry. My child was one of the highest students until the 1st grade. Now my child is behind at - 1 yr. in reading. I requested special help for my child, I was refused. Claiming there is no programs available.

I don't feel the principal listens to parents and allows certain children to get away whatever they want. This school is very inconsitent in pretty much everything. I regret moving into this district just so my kids could go to the same schools I did.

About the tests

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.
