I had two kids go to Gray and overall was very happy with it. I am a 7th grade teacher myself.

Our daughter just finished 6th grade at Gray Middle School. We love this school, it's small so our daughter gets personal attention from all teachers. They are really great. There are many parents committed to their children's education. We like the location of the school also.

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.
