This school is awesome & has a great community supporting it. I didn't give 5 stars for 2 reasons: 1) I wish this school was a little more diverse in it's student population but the school has no control over that. And 2) I really wish the teachers wouldn't give the kids candy as often as they do. It seems like a couple times a week my kids are coming home with candy in their backpacks or talking about how their teach gave them candy in class. It's not really neccasary.

i left this school in 5th grade because it was boring, I didn't like most of the teachers, and the structure was to traditional and didn't allow students to learn anything worth learning. a complete waste of time.

Hollyrood is a fantastic little school that gives your young child security, a loving community and fabulous academic start in life. Truly a gem!

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.
