All of our children have attended OSE... it is the only choice in a community 30 miles from anywhere. That said, if you are an involved parent who keeps your kids doing their homework, and stays in touch with their teachers, you will find that where the school may lack resources (as small communities do) they make up for it with genuine affection. If you are fortunate enough to be able to live at the beach, the people outshine the statistics at this school.

I am proud to send both my boys to this school. There is a friendly atmosphere and the staff is dedicated and knowledgeable.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Washington used the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, in writing in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The MSP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
