Oliver Elementary is a wonderful school with wonderful staff and teachers. The principal is a great guy and knows his students. Everyone is easy to talk to about your child with any concerns and they are concerned about your child as a student as well.

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.
