JGEMS is a fabulous school. The teachers care about each student's development. The classes are small enough that no one gets lost. The work is challenging. The school focuses on the world around us, making our kids better citizens.

It's a tiny school that offers a secure environment for students and constant opportunity for active, engaged, hands-on learning.

My granddaughters are getting an amazing education there. Their knowledge of the environment is wonderful.

I like this school very much because it has fewer students and the teachers can pay more attention to each individual student.

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.
