this is a good school.i like it but the dress code is not the best way to keep kids out of trouble,there are alot of other ways to keep kids out of trouble and if this school would just have a meeting with the parents of the students they could come up with a way to make the teachers and the students happy.

This school is doing so much --- from the Parent Center, to a district-wide Literacy Center, to JGEMS, to incredible after school programs.

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.
