This school isn't for every child! They paid more attention to certain types of students then others! My son had a difficult time from the day he started until we moved! He is now in a new school district and doing 100% percent better! I would think long and hard before sending your child there! Keep in mind that they changed the name! Principal and vice principal were never there on the same days and there was always a teacher playing principal! Many parents didn't speak english so couldn't really build relationships!

Most teachers are excellent, especially those in the Spanish immersion tract, and the principal is dedicated. It's still going through growing pains as the elementary and middle schools recently merged. The main area of concern is lack of supervision of the older students in the hallway, disrespectful language and behaviors, and other issues around a school with a suddenly wide span of age.

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.
