My kids have been attending from fall 2012. We have had nothing but positive things to say about Prescott. The teachers are amazing. The positive reinforcement that the school does is excellent. This school has made the transition to a new place much easier to adjust to for my kids. Even kids with special needs they work excellently with. The parents are really welcoming and there is a fair amt. of parent involvement. I am very impressed and would highly recommend this school in the Parkrose District.

Great school. I went there when I was a kid and my kids go there now. The teachers care and so do the other parents. Great school.

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.
