This school has been a blessing. The staff that I have interacted with thus far have been so supportive, from the office staff to my child's teacher. My child is a shy and timid one (while she waits to warm up to you). Her teacher has really helped her spread her wings and grow. She spends that extra time to help my child feel comfortable in the classroom environment and has helped us build the confidence they'll need to succeed in the coming years. The teachers are attentive and inspiring from reading all they way to music class and the library. The excitement I hear from them when we all share our day is a blessing.

Lynch Meadows is the best school my child has ever attended. Their library is state of the art, and incredibly impressive. The classrooms are of adequate size, and the child to teacher ratio is average. The principal seems to have a genuine interest in the children and their families. There is a counselor on campus that hosts various groups for the children, to include friendship building, anger management, and honesty. The music program is well-developed, and the playground is safe and clean. Academically this school is average. Overall, this is a great school, and I am very happy with our experience.

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.
