I was a parent and a teacher at Bethany. There is no better principal- she is fantastic with students, parents, and staff. Bethany has a waiting list, even though class sizes are larger than nearby schools. It is because Bethany is such a positive place with excellent caring staff, parents who are involved, and again, a dynamic awesome principal.

We searched long and hard for the best school for our two girls. Bethany met all of our standards for a really good school. Wonderful teachers, a super principal and excellent parent envolvment. Also our daughters thrive in this small school environment where they are know by name and they are adequately challenged with a high standard curriculum. Bravo Bethany!

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.
