I transferred my two kids from Salem because I love that Turner Elementary has science days, math incentives, music programs, fun assemblies, science fair, and tons of outside the classroom learning. The thing I love best is that kids move for math and reading to different teachers so every kid is challenged. Every concern we had in Salem is gone now. I'm looking forward to seeing them go through the Cascade School system now.

Excellent staff and school! We live in Salem and transfered our two kids to Turner. I can't believe how much individual attention they got. We love this school!

My three children have been going to turner for past 6yrs. I only have one more child to go! I love Turner's spirit and the staff. They truly care about your child's education. And if there is a problem they have a great open door policy!

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.
