Candalaria definitely deserves an update to continue the positive feedback for 2013. I have one child that just graduated Candalaria and another that is currently in 4th grade. We moved into this area from out of state 2 years ago. All the teachers, administration, and staff have been very dedicate to the development of my children and have been very responsive. We love the "closeness" of this school. Comminity feeling. Parents are encouraged to be involved to whatever extent works best for the family. Great PTA as well, which is very important in times of overall economic cutbacks. We look forward to our 3rd child starting in Candalaria in 3 years!

I have a special needs son at Candalaria and I can't stress enough the wonderful care we receive from ALL staff, from teachers, counselor, front office, LRC teacher to all the parent involvement. We are blessed to be a part of this school.

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.
