You have to take the bad with the good in life. East is full of dedicated staff and teachers. Schools have intense pressures to meet & maintain federal, state, local, and community standards and needs with a continuously shrinking budget. With those restrictions in mind I give East Elementary full star rating.

I am very sorry to hear about how bad your child is doing in school. Being a parent/grandparent of a child in East, I am always concerned about the children learning. But we can't put the blame on the teachers anymore, it is also our faults as parents. We have to stay on top of the problem of learning. My child is getting into some math that I am not very good at. But I am doing my part by brushing up on the 'new math'. If your child needs help, don't be afraid to ask. And don't forget to ask the child if they are having trouble. Communication is the best thing in our schools.

My chlld has been in East School for one year now, and has been in other Tillamook schools for two years. I am not pleased with the results of how she is learning. This summer I got her report card in the mail and it said she passed all of her classes. However she is struggling with math and her spelling really bad. I then in return called her teacher to ask why she was pushing her onto the next grade without giving us notice as to her having problems with spelling, the teacher then told me it is due to budjet cuts! How can you blame a childs learning ability on a budjet cut? I am very sad that they push our children through school without teaching them the basics. Instead the teachers ask us parents to make sure to teach them what they should be teaching them!

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.
