I love being part of the Sojourner community. I value the dedication of the staff, the passion of the parents and most of all the beautiful minds of the children. Sojourner is a place where children are challenged, nurtured and respected. It is the kind of school I have always dreamed of for my children a place they are excited to go every day.

We are blessed to be a part of this 'learning community'. Our children learn to be good, well-rounded citizens while learning all of the basics. I know of no other public elementary school in the area that teaches everything from juggling to web design. Our students begin a second language & violin in Kindergarten. What could be better?

As a magnet school focused on the Multiple Intelligence Model of Gardner, this school excels in providing a safe and nurturing environment for the K-6 students. Team-teaching is the rule and the director is the best administrator I have ever met. The students love this school if they love to learn. Special elective courses each term make learning a different experience for each child and the emphasis on the arts in so important.

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.
