A comment leads one to believe they have always had low test scores, the staff is lacking as well as poor education. Test scores from 2007-10 show they have done nothing but improve. Comparing the two schools you will see West an intermediate school is graded on three years 4th-6th where East is a primary school graded on only third grade. East is rated for test results in 3rd grade reading and math. West is graded on reading, writing, math, then science for 5th grade. East is rated on its performance on state standardized testing. West is rated based on state test results. The staff is amazing. We just moved here in October, met with the principal and he checked on our student three times on that first day. This week my husband went to pick up our daughter. The principal did not let him. He had not been to the school in four months as he works. They sent him to the office to check her out, then met him out front, walked him to the classroom to ask our child can you leave with him? An officer is in front of the school and there presence is known. She loves the teachers and kids, I would never change to Oakland and never let my her miss the out on the education given to her at West

West Intermediate (4-6) takes the great kids and families coming out of 3rd grade from East Primary and, slowly but surely, sucks the life out of them. How do you explain East Primary school routinely rating "Met" and "Outstanding" on state report cards, and West Intermediate school routinely rating "Does NOT Meet" and "Needs Improvement"? It's the same kids and same parents transferring from East to West, so it's obviously staff and administration that makes the difference, and it's been this way for years. No excuses, West. It's time to make some big changes. Transfer to Oakland if possible, instead of going to West Intermediate. This school starts the downhill slide from the great start to education at East Primary to the poor education in the secondary schools of Sutherlin.

This school does a great job with bare minimum financial resources and many social challenges. Quite a task in this economically depressed area.

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.
