I have been happy with this school. My children have had excellent teachers who care alot about their students and communicate well with parents. My oldest is on an IEP and the Special Ed teacher has been really helpful. The downside is that there is no school on Fridays and no music education.

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.
