I love the small school. Everyone knows everyone! The smaller class sizes help the students learn more.

It is small enough to be personal for each student, yet does well academically as a group. The teachers are outstanding and very professional as well as having a true love for their profession.

I adore Rural Dell. Simple as that. My children have been in two other school districts in the area, and I could not get them out fast enough. The teachers & staff are wonderful, caring and talented and I could not be happier!

Rural Dell has a lot to offer. Small but not too small of a school, good community support, lots of nice parent volunteers, and a competent and caring staff who work well together to offer the best possible education to students. I have been a teacher in another district but feel very happy with the education, support and the type of friends my grand nieces have at Rural Dell.

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.
