Myers has been a great school for my child. They have been a great help with him and his special needs. All the teachers, councelors, and the staff are great.

I am a student teacher at this school and if your goal is to have your student succeed, then I strongly recommend Myers Elementary. Not only for its curriculum, but all the staff. You will never find a school as inviting as Myers Elementary.

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.
