Excellent teachers Strong principal and school leadership Challenging academic programs A wonderful overall healthy environment


Posted October 1, 2011

I enjoyed Linwood a lot. And learned a lot here. Linwood is a great school and i often enjoyed going there for the first time. The teachers and staff were very friendly. We would often go on trips anywhere the teacher decided us to go to. And we would learn about the programs there. And play a game of jeopardy and even the students were nice. But the only problem is that you cannot talk when you are eating lunch or you are outside or the teacher will yell at you. But other then that it's a great school. Going to recess was fun there. And a lot of the people who worked there were just awesome. Thank you Linwood! And i liked the programs and what they had to offer there. And the principle teachers were friendly. And the challenges here were just amazing. And we would walk laps. And play games at the school. It was fun.

I am a student at Linwood and i think its awesome but the lunch and recess isnt good because we dont get a enough time to eat and we cant taik for five minutes without a teacher yelling at us and when we get outside we have to run laps as fast as we can so we still have time to play.and sixth graders dont have 2 recess like the rest of the school but overall evrything is much better than any other school ive whent to

My grand daughter has done 1000 times better since she has started at Linwood over her prior elementary school. This is due to the teachers and principal. Way to go Linnwood!

everything was greatr but the lunch time. They were yelled at often and couldn't talk during the 15 minutes they had to scarf food. then go out and RUN two laps around the track. the teachers and class activities awsome though.

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.
