We couldn't be more pleased with this school. We tried to get into two charter schools in the area without success. Next year our youngest child will be going into kindergarten. We aren't going to try again for the lottery for the charter schools. We've already hit the lottery with this wonderful school with caring teachers, principal and staff!!

This is an incredible school with great staff that care about the children - and that's all staff from the secretaries to the librarians, the teacher's aides to the principal and even the wonderful janitor, too (and of course the teachers!)! The test scores reflect the above average education that the children are receiving. This is a wonderful school!!!

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.
