Moved from cottage grove and transferd into river bend 2nd grade im graduated now but i had the most fun there, after school activities were wonderful including the valintines dance that they changed to prize winning bingo and even though they lost immunization paperwork once on me they never lost the paper work on my 3 younger sibling!! they are wonderful and i love going back and visiting the supportive teachers i had


Posted August 24, 2011

Worst school ever! Every night my kids would come home not knowing how exactly to do their homework, and when trying to talk with one of the teachers about it, she said "he should have been listening." and that was that. no extra attention for anyone, and when some boy was picking on my little girl and pulling her hair during a school concert, the teacher just said, "good job at being a tough girl." no reprocussions or talks for the other offending little boy. It seems like they just dont care AT ALL about anything. LOST OUR PAPERWORK AND IMMUNIZATION INFO THREE TIMES!!!!

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.
