School is OK as long as you are not using a TEACHER whois goign to RETIRE in the next year or two. She is FED up with her life and SHOWS it in her lack of ability to handle the classroom settings well with other children. Principal is NOT GOOD NOT IS THE VP... VERY DISAPOINTING......

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.
