Robert Frost is a great school. Though the feild trips are quite lacking, the playground and feild are beautiful, the trees grow cherries and there a blackberrries to pick. PE is fun, the principal is kind, organized, and very pleasant to be around. The guidance counselor is great and really helps you with anything troubling you. I think this is a great school for all kids.

I have a child who will be in 5th grade at this school. She had a wonderful first year. Parent participation is something that needs a little work but teachers and staff try very hard to fill the gaps. I would strongly agree that this is a great school and a wonderful community.

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.
