I love this school! The staff is very friendly and genuinely concerned with excellence for all kids. It's amazing how quickly the staff will respond to situations when I express concern about academic or friend issues. I am proud and thrilled to have my kids' educational experience be as a Washington wildcat!

My daughter's teacher is wonderfully supportive and experienced. The school is cheerful and the administration has been very helpful/responsive when I've needed something. I'm very happy that she is attending Washington. They always have something new going on, and a bunch of extra curricular programs available, which I understand are not necessarily available at other schools in Pendleton.

i feel that the anitbullying policy of this school is not followed in any manner. When testing is requested, the parent and doctor is completely ignored. I really dislike 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.
