I go to Grant and I love it there all of the teachers rock and they teach at college level. The art and music programs are really good and they have funding. We also have choir and photography for those who are interseted in those types of things. There are lots of sports and all of the coaches are good. We get lots of parents help with the extra curricular activities such as with the play we have parents help with the sets and to sell things to help make money for our theater program and the auditoriums restoration. With the sports the parents bring food and drinks. People time and keep score. All together this school has amazing teacher, helpfull parents, good extracurricular activities and an amazing student body when we are needed.

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.
