A strong staff and a caring atmosphere make this school one of the strongest middle schools in the Portland School District. We are on our third child passing through the school and have been very pleased with all aspects.

My son was in the Cedar Lodge Program the last 3 years and it was the best experience for him and us as a family. He did not move from class to class but stayed all day in his class. He went to ERC and Speech. I feel Cedar Lodge and Mr. Collins, his teacher, was so helpful in my son's education along with his ERC teacher Ms. Blackman and his Speech teacher Ms. Price. I would recommend Cedar Lodge to any family that has L/D ADHD child.

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.
