Posted July 20, 2010

A school is about so much more than results on standardized tests. I've attended 7 schools in my life and Lookingglass Elementary is the only one I give 10 out of 10. I truly felt cared for by the instructors at Lookingglass, on my first day (4th grade) I received aptitude testing that they effective used to target areas that I could improve on and worked with me to do so now I am three years into college Dean's List all the way. This is a great school any child would be lucky to attend, they helped to teach me morals during regular education. The schools gardening program is an exceptional concept that builds well rounded individuals. There isn't enough I can say to express my gratitude to this school and I know my sibling feels the same way.

This is an absolutly outstanding school! All the kids know each other, and all the teachers know the kids! The academic programs are great and kids have been known to have very high grades who go to that school. There are sports programs in the near area, a music program that runs out there, and extracurricular activities are provided for each student. Countless parents are involved with the school and help out in any way that they can. You can feel the friendly enviornment the second you step into that school and it is a lovely naturistic type surrounding. This is said as a graduating student and a previous student body president.

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.
