We moved into this school district and my student has had a terrible time. It's very click-ish. The school is at least 70% Hispanic and most of them are related to each other, or has grown up together. The students and teachers are not welcoming to out-sliders. There is at least one middle school teacher that is a huge bully. She makes fun of my disabled daughter in front of other students. This is a terrible school and school district. I encourage people that are new to the area to choose the Idaho side of the Border. Avoid this 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.
