Willamette is the best school ever! The teachers really know their stuff and kids love going to school. I wish I was starting kindergarten so I could go to school at Willamette for six years!!!

Sunset Primary School is the friendliest school around. Starting with the wonderful secretaries in the office to the terrific teachers, helpful instructional assistants and very involved administrators, this is the place you want to send your child. Instruction is topnotch, and your child will feel happy, welcomed, and respected in this extremely positive environment where learning is fun.

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.
