This school is amazing. My son came to Springville from another highly rated Beaverton school. The differences are drastically better. My son is no longer bored, is challenged daily, and has blossomed with the project based learning they do. We also love the diversity this school exposes my child to. He has friends that came here from all over the world. Very glad my youngest will be going here too!

The teachers here are great and they help us learn so much. We students set great examples and we know that if we don't study when we are young we'll fail one way or the other, we know this because education is our future. We think that others should know that too.I like how our school works well together and set great examples. We have integerity and great sportsmanship.

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.
