CVMS is a good school. The teachers are very committed to the students and the curriculum is appropriately challenging. The only downside I have seen as both substitute and parent is the sheer size of classes. My hat's off to those teachers who are dealing with 30+ kids and some of them are a handful every day. Discipline is fairly tight when teachers choose to acknowledge good behaviors and don't put up with bad ones. Leadership is good, especially Mr. Franco, the new principal. I'd like to see more community service requirements and more enrichment like foreign languages. I've seen incredible schools and really awful ones, and I think this is a good one. My child does pretty well here but there's still room for improvement.

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.
