To this point our families experience with the Pleasant Hill School District has been grades K - 4. Our schools may not have the luxuries found in some larger districts such as swimming pools, cafeterias or fancy auditoriums. What we do have are caring, qualified teachers and staff and classrooms at a manageable student level. We have found that our child has been inspired to learn and is being prepared for college and future success. Furthermore we have not had teachers pedaling their personal political agenda upon our child. Our elementary school cooperates with a local church and parents allowing students to attend church school for a period one day each week which is unusual these days. We look forward to our child continuing his education in the Pleasant Hill School District as he moves forward with middle and high school.

I think that Pleasant Hill School District is highly over rated. I choose to move my family to this school district, because at one time it was the best school in Lane County. In my opinion Pleasant Hill is now equal & not above any of the other school's in Lane County; which is ashamed as every tax levy that is put to vote for the school district passes; and the taxes are outrageous in the P.H. area...so there should be no reason that there is no NORMAL lunch program being provided, or buses for students other then the 'FOOTBALL' players for sporting events. Come on Pleasant Hill School...lets give the residents of this area a break and start offering more programs and classes that will allow our students more of a chance as they get ready to enter the world. There is more to this world then football out there.

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.
