This is the school that recently called the POLICE because a student was playing the game "Hangman" in class! These morons said the student's innocent game posed a "threat of harm". These fools are completely out of their minds! Just another "zero tolerance, zero thought, zero accountability" school. These administrators and teachers have absolutely no business educating or providing examples for our children! This is disgusting and anyone involved in this politically correct travesty needs to lose their jobs and be banned from the education industry for life!

Absolutely ridiculous and suspends kids for playing vocabulary games. They are radicalizing kids and breeding violent contempt, by trying to stifle free thinking.

We came to Raleigh Hills when our daughter was in 3rd grade and son in kindergarten and could not have been happier with that decision! It was the best move ever. The staff, teachers and Mr Pep are top notch!

We couldn't be happier with Raleigh Hills. The staff, teachers, principal, and support professionals are top notch. They do their jobs in a way that shows how much they care about the kids they are teaching and guiding.

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.
